Love Never Dies to close in August

There has been much speculation on the future of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies for several months, but it has now been confirmed that the production will close at London’s Adelphi Theatre on 27th August 2011.

It is reputedly making way for the National’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors starring James Corden which runs at the Lyttelton Theatre into the autumn and then tours from September 27th till October 29th prior to transferring into the Adelphi.

Love Never Dies opened in the West End in March 2010 and has just opened its Australian production in Melbourne to great critical acclaim.  There had been reports that Lloyd Webber would work changes from this production into the London show ahead of any future international productions.

Love Never Dies took four nights off last November for improvements,  but with poor audience figures it seems that it will be taken off completely and then re-opened in London next year or go out on tour as a new production.

I think Andrew should re-open Au version in London.Not against the original one but after the success of Au version,it'll be less risky than the original.I think Andrew should re-open Au version in London.Not against the original one but after the success of Au version,it'll be less risky than the original.
