Love Never Dies is the fourth Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that will be streaming on the The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel!

According to BritishTheatre.com, the channel will be featuring the 2012 Australian production starring Ben Lewis as the Phantom and Anna O’Byrne as Christine Daaé. It was directed by Simon Phillips, with set and costume designs by Gabriela Tylesova, and choreography by Graeme Murphy.

Known as the sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies is set in the year 1907, 10 years after the Phantom’s disappearance. He has since escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love – Christine Daaé.

Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul. She accepts an invitation to travel to New York and perform at a renowned opera house. In a final bid to win back her love, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan; to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island, not knowing what is in store for them.

The online streaming of Love Never Dies is preceded by the 2000 production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the 2012 production of Jesus Christ Superstar, and the 2011 production of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall.

Just like the shows prior, Love Never Dies will only be available for 48 hours, beginning on April 24, 7pm UK time (April 25, 2AM local Philippine time).
