Casting has been announced for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies, the spellbinding sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, for the premiere Nashville engagement at TPAC.
Directly from the highly successful production of Love Never Dies in Hamburg, Germany, Gardar Thor Cortes will portray the man behind the mask, “The Phantom”, with Meghan Picerno as “Christine Daaé”, Karen Mason as “Madame Giry”, Sean Thompson as “Raoul”, Mary Michael Patterson as ‘Meg Giry’, and Casey Lyons and Jake Heston Miller sharing the role of “Gustave”.
The ensemble includes Chelsey Arce, Erin Chupinsky, Diana DiMarizo, Tyler Donahue, Yesy Garcia, Alyssa Giannetti, Michael Gillis, Tamar Greene, Natalia Lepore Hagan, Lauren Lukacek, Alyssa McAnany, Rachel Anne Moore, Bronson Norris Murphy, Dave Schoonover, Adam Soniak, Kelly Swint, Lucas John Thompson, Correy West, Arthur Wise, and Borris York.
Love Never Dies is a dazzling new production, which takes audiences on a thrilling rollercoaster ride of intrigue, obsession and romance. Audiences will be seduced by the beautiful; sometimes magical and poetic; sometimes joyful; and occasionally melancholic score. Don’t miss this magnificent continuation of one of the world’s greatest love stories.
The new touring production will reflect an extensive re-working of the material by an Australian creative team for the original Australian premiere in 2011.
Lloyd Webber said he knew about five minutes into seeing its first run-through that he and the new production team had achieved something special.
“I have the great joy of being able to say that I think this production is probably the finest one I could ever, ever hope for.” -Andrew Lloyd Webber
In a final bid to win back Christine’s love, The Phantom lures her, Raoul, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan to the glistening and glorious world of Coney Island – not knowing what is in store for them.
Love Never Dies will be at TPAC June 19-24, 2018. Ticket sales will be listed on social media once announced.
