Love Never Dies reviews

That is now stunningly articulated in the tender, heartfelt rapport between Karimloo’s Phantom and the shimmering, simmering beauty of Boggess’s Christine. Joseph Millson also brings a dramatic poignancy to the character of Raoul. Just as Raoul cannot compete with the allure of the Phantom, neither can this show ultimately shake off the associations of the masterpiece that it has come from but then again, nor should it. It cannot compete. Instead, it now provides a wonderful, powerful continuation of its potent legacy that is as dramatically alluring as it is musically magnificent. The Express


The principals shine, Ramin Karimloo a threatening and unpredictable Phantom, Sierra Boggess, a troubled Christine who makes the title song a showstopper, and Joseph Millson, bruising and bruised as her drunken husband. Lloyd Webber's score is one of his best, not just in the romantic sweep of the title song and at least one other, but in the range of musical styles... ...It's a good musical that has got better and rewards a second viewing. The Independent


...the second act is superb. Joseph Millson's Raoul is allowed some heart... ...as Karimloo and Millson circle round Christine, Bob Crowley's design pared back to a striking mix of blackness and gilt, the songs finally get you in the gut...so Lloyd Webber's music impresses in the first act, transports in the second. The Times


Joseph Millson’s powerful Raoul, a dejected drunk, becomes the new thwarted Phantom... ...The dramatic quality of performance has improved and deepened - Liz Robertson is a forbidding Madame Giry, Millson superb in the Hopperesque night bar. The Stage


Some self-styled "phans", fixated on the original show, are outraged that Lloyd Webber has rejigged the love triangle. Personally, I don't give a monkey's. Why not take a new slant, with romantic hero Raoul morphing into tetchy husband (top-class actor Joseph Millson, who also has a fine singing voice). While Raoul hits the bottle, Sierra Boggess's Christine – yearning for a second brush with the dark side – is drawn into eerily echoing duets with Karimloo. Undeniably, Lloyd Webber can write a haunting melody, and everyone's going to come away from this show with earworms – tunes that just won't go away. Kate Bassett - The Independent


...the British composer has delivered a sequel in "Love Never Dies" that is as handsome as the original and filled with infectious melodies, startling images and wonderful performances... Millson, Robertson and Strallen also have their moments to shine as Lloyd Webber shakes up the musical tone with lively dancing girls and even some prog-rock... The Hollywood Reporter


Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess sing superbly as the Phantom and Christine, with a real spark between them. Boggess is especially fine in the soaring title song, and Karimloo deftly combines menace and vulnerability throughout. Meanwhile Joseph Millson memorably captures the self-destructive Raoul. The Telegraph


So when this now highly successful soprano and irreplaceable Muse of the Phantom fetches up for a singing engagement at Coney, with her hard-drinking, disaffected gambler of a husband, Raoul (excellent Joseph Millson), it is with the Phantom's own 10-year-old son in tow... Paul Taylor - The Independent
