Although the musical was well done it did not live up to the Brilliance of Phantom of the Opera. The songs over all were very nice but in the Phantom several songs were exceptional. Also the person playing Christine was hard to understand in her higher operatic register. I remember Christine's voice from Phantom being very angelic and beautiful, less operatic then the one she replaced in the story of phantom, however this Christine was more like the operatic singer from the original Phantom that Christine replaced. The boy that played Gustave was exceptional.
I saw Love Never Dies on its last
performance at the Smith Center. I
had followed various reviews and had
obtained a DVD of the long running
Australian production so I,
unashamedly, was already hooked.
There was no need to develop the
story or the characters, I already knew
them. This production continues the
Phantoms fascination with Christine,
of course, he still loves her. In the
days following the fire, 10 years
earlier, there was one more meeting
between them and this is actually the
beginning of the play. Had there
been more anticipation of Christine's
arrival to New York and stage time
regarding Meg and her mothers role
in the Phantoms escape from Paris,
the reviewers might have been more
satisfied. My only regret is that the
best song, I believe, opens the play
and should have closed the first act.
As its written, though, it works
because we KNOW the characters.
Loved it...recommend to true
Phantom fans. The reviewers may
not get it but you ABSOLUTELY will.
Fabulous show. The staging was phenomenal.. The story is an enjoyable
Shakespearean type, traditional musical. Music is great. I left the show singing
the songs - to me a sure sign of a good show. Gustav was outstanding as were
the other actors.
I am not sure why some people are disappointed. My only thought is they really
just didn't want a sequel to Phantom of the Opera in the first place. If that is you,
just watch it as if it was an independent show. You will love it. I saw and enjoyed
Phantom of the Opera several times yet was not the least bit disappointed in
they show. Honestly, it was much more enjoyable than many current award
winners. I would definitely see it again.
If you have seen the Phantom, you must see
this. The singing, costumes and sets were
spectacular at the Cadillac Palace in Chicago.
We had balcony seats and were pleased with
the view. Far left or right may not be as
good due to some equipment. My husband
and I absolutely recommend this for a night
out. The Italian Village Restaurant was our
choice of dining before the show and was
excellent. Make plans, relax and enjoy
dining and a great play!
Last night, a friend and I went to see "Love Never Dies" at the Cadillac Palace Theatre in Chicago. What a treat it was! The beautiful sets absolutely took my breath away - and the costumes! So colorful and elegant, I couldn't take my eyes off the stage. Oh, and the singing... you don't want the songs to end. So much heart and feeling. It's the next morning for me as I write this, and I'm at work, and I can't concentrate on work because my thoughts are still back at the theater, enjoying the show again and again. The carnival characters were astounding - especially the main three. The actors who played their roles... it was like the melody of a perfect dream when they were on stage (Squelch, Fleck and Gangle.) Really, their voices and energy... I enjoyed their segments most of all, they were so vivid and full of magical fun. They could have a spin-off show and I'd be there! This current tour needs to be seen by all - I absolutely recommend it.
