LOVE NEVER DIES, DIED
the voices were fantastic, very disappointed with the show, no continuity, disjointed, didn't leave with a song in my head. a lot of people left at intermission. I was so looking forward to this show, Sad.

Wanted to love this play, but ended up leaving at the intermission, and we weren't the only ones who did. While the singing was great, the story line, and music were horrible. The plot was absurd, Christine having the Phantom's child -- please. I only gave it two stars because the actors were fine, they were just stuck with a horrible play.

didn't care for it - was very disappointed- left at intermission such a confusing story line songs not memorable although the singers were good - really didnt care for their tone Phantom not a very good tone that was that enjoyable and Christine - way too loud and shrill and operatic not soft and engaging like Phantom original cast Suprised Andrew Weber did this- not goo follow up but orchestra and sets were very good

SNOOZE-FEST, OFF-PUTTING STORY, OVER ENUNCIATING ACTOR
I'm a first time subscriber to the Paramount, but grew up on musicals. I've never seen Phantom of the Opera, but was interested to see what Love Never Dies had to bring. The first part of the show was soooooo boring. The songs weren't memorable, and it seemed disjointed. You could see the lead actor spitting everywhere as he was over enunciating. My friend (who loves musicals 1000% more than me), wanted to leave at intermission. I argued that there was at least going to be some death and craziness at the end, so we should at least get some action. Second half wrapped everything up, but honestly wasn't much better. However, the actor who played Gustav screaming "noooo" at the end set me off in a way that rarely happens. I couldn't stop laughing. It was horrible. I laughed for 5 minutes--full body silent, snorting, shaking laughter as an actor was "dying" on stage. Other people laughed at parts that weren't supposed to be funny. Overall, good laughs, but not what I think they wanted.

DISAPPOINTING, BUT OKAY
We are season ticket holders at Pantages (have been for years). I doubt we would have purchased tickets for this play, but they came in the packet for this season. We love The Phantom Of The Opera and have seen it many times. This sequel doesn't even come close to the caliber of music and story line. It has a completely differently feeling and doesn't have the mystery and haunting feeling that the original does. The songs and music are disappointing as well. Too bad as we were very hopeful that we would enjoy it.

LOVE IS DEAD AND BURIED SIX FEET UNDER
Love Never Dies is the worst Broadway Series production that has ever come to Austin! This is the first time that I and my party of 5 walked out at intermission and never return. We also witnessed at least 5 others patrons doing the same. I pity the performers as they did their best to make something out of this monstrous disaster created by Andrew Lloyd Webber. It comes as no surprise this clunker never was performed on Broadway!

THE WORST MUSICAL I'VE EVER SEEN
I have season tickets to the Orpheum's broadway run, and let me tell you, this was the quietest I've ever heard a Minnesota theater audience...which should tell you something about how bad the show was. Lush costumes and large set pieces can't mask lazy choreo and boring music. If I hadn't read the plot ahead of time, I'd have had no idea what was going on, since all of the exposition was done in tortured songs with canticles and over-sung notes. We were laughing and we weren't the only ones. I wish we'd left at intermission, but I guess we can be happy with the jokes we'll now have about this disaster of a musical. Oh, and in all sincerity, this show should have a content warning for emotional abuse. JFC, Raoul and the Phantom have only doubled-down on their horrific treatment of Christine, who apparently LOVES to be grabbed, pushed, yelled at, threatened, and blackmailed. It was gross.
