'Love Never Dies'...Except In London
Posted: June 19, 2011
LONDON (AP) Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to the hit musical "The Phantom of the Opera" will close in August.

"Love Never Dies" opened in March last year to mixed reviews at the Adelphi Theatre as the first musical sequel to open in London's West End. The show relaunched with changes months later and recently nominated for seven Laurence Olivier theater awards, but won nothing.

Lloyd Webber had told reporters that he could not properly oversee the opening of the show because he was diagnosed with cancer before the debut.

The musical opened in Melbourne, Australia, in May to more positive reviews.

"Phantom," now in its 25th year, continues to be popular in the West End.
