Critics invited back to review revamped Love Never Dies

Love Never Dies recently closed at the Adelphi Theatre for three days so that some changes could be implemented. Since it re-opened all the feedback I have received about the re-vamped version has been most mostly positibve.

Andrew Lloyd Webber has clearly decided that the time is right to try to win the hearts of the London critics as they have been invited to revisit and re-review the show on 21st December.

There has been no announcement about who has actually implemented the changes, which include the repositioning of Ramin Karimloo's (The Phantom) ballad "Till I Hear You Sing" at the start of the show and the revised ending, but it is believed that producer and director Bill Kenwright has played a big part.

Sunset Boulevard, Lloyd Webber's last original musical to play at the Adelphi Theatre, was also “tweaked” during the course of its West End run and invited the critics back to see it again.

Ramin Karimloo told us at a recent concert that he is leaving the show in early March.

Both he and Sierra are due to leave on 5th March with no replacements officially announced yet.

Ramin has said he will be in the Toronto cast of Love Never Dies but currently seems to be loving making his own music with the Sheytoons so who knows ... watch this space

I must admit I found the show disappointing and thought it was only saved by its strong leads.I wonder who will replace them?

All sorts of rumours but nothing firm yet. Hopefully with everything returning to normal in the production offices this week things will start to move again in the West End,
