Love Never Dies (Original Cast Recording)

Andrew Lloyd Webber (b. 1948) is the most successful composer of musicals of his generation and also a breaker of molds for the type. His predecessors were, for the most part, American: New York-based songwriters steeped in Broadway tradition. Lloyd Webber saw his share of shows as a child, too, but he was born in London, the son of William Lloyd Webber, Director of the London College of Music, and was trained at the Royal Academy of Music, hardly the sort of place where you'd be likely to hear Oklahoma!

Nevertheless, Lloyd Webber hooked up with lyricist Tim Rice, and the two began work on what would be a typical project for them, a musical based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. Titled Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, it brought in a strong rock & roll influence. After writing a second unproduced musical, the two hit on the idea of writing a musical based on the life of Jesus Christ from the point of view of Judas (not the sort of idea likely to occur to a Broadway composer) and, again, imbued with rock. Unable to finance a stage version, Lloyd Webber and Rice did manage to record their show, and Jesus Christ Superstar went on to sales in the millions all over the world. The hit musical version followed.

Lloyd Webber and Rice then split, with the composer writing film scores and working on an abortive musical with playwright Alan Ayckbourne (Jeeves), after which Rice returned with another audacious idea: a musical based on the life of Argentine dictator (or dictator's wife, depending on how you look at it) Eva Peron. Evita (1976) repeated the pattern of Jesus Christ Superstar, with its hit record album followed by a successful theatrical run in the West End and then on Broadway.

The Lloyd Webber-Rice partnership, having proved itself again, was severed (Rice went on to write Chess), and Lloyd Webber next wrote a musical revue based on T.S. Eliot's whimsical poems about Cats (1981). This time, the show came before the album, and it's still running. By this time, Lloyd Webber had largely abandoned the rock elements of his work in favor of what critics found a pastiche style that borrowed from classical and opera sources. He had also become a brand name (and a corporation, the Really Useful Company) that assured at least a modest success for subsequent shows, though critics were often unimpressed with his efforts.

Downgrading the status of his lyricists, Lloyd Webber went on to a series of successful shows (Song and Dance, Starlight Express) before scoring another long- (and still-) running hit in 1987 (1988 in New York) with a musical adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera. Aspects of Love (1989-1990) was less successful, however. Lloyd Webber debuted a musical adaptation of the Billy Wilder film Sunset Boulevard in the early '90s, and it proved to be one of his rare disappointments, failing to earn either good reviews or healthy ticket sales. In 1996, Alan Parker adapted Evita for the screen; Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice contributed a new song, "You Must Love Me," to the production, which starred Madonna. "You Must Love Me" won the Best Original Song award at the 1997 Academy Awards. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

This is amazing... While Phantom was fine as a stand alone, this adds a lot of closure that I feel was much needed. Beautiful music.

They need to add the Australian version of Love Never Dies with Ben Lewis and Anna O'Byrne!
Report as inappropriate
If he did that @A hope to the broken, then it would be more of a repeat then a sequel. I think he incorporated enough to please the fans while still keeping the newer songs original and there own.

He should have Incorporated more songs from the original phantom

Just watched it after watching POTO live and I wasn't ready emotionally and just about died. They are both amazing.

As much as I ship Erick with Christine, you can't just destroy the plot of the first one. Still enjoyed it though :)

See! At least someone agrees with me! Simon Gleeson (who plays Raoul in that version) is an incredible actor and singer.
Report as inappropriate
I agree completely with you, littlearod77 , and in the Australian cast it's even easier to feel sorry for him because it is more apparent that he cares for her.
Report as inappropriate
Sorry, hrs518, but I can't allow such talk! Raoul is awesome and I personally feel bad for him. Think about it....You are down on your luck financially then a guy your wife is in love with shows up and alienates her from you even more. Then she up and deserts you taking your son (who you find out is not actually your son) with her. Then she dies. Now tell me you don't feel bad for Raoul too!
