“Love Never Dies,” the sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera,” is coming to the Theatre at Solaire at a still undisclosed date. A poster of the show with the caption “Coming Soon” can now be found at Solaire’s theater lobby.

Other details like casting have yet to be announced, but here’s hoping that Meghan Picerno, who played Christine Daaé in the US Premiere and the 1st National US Tour, and who’s currently playing the role in the “Phantom” tour here in Manila, comes back to play the role.

“Love Never Dies” first opened on the West End in 2010. The music is composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Lloyd Webber, Slater, Ben Elton, and Frederick Forsyth.

The musical is set 10 years after the Phantom’s disappearance from the Paris Opera House. He has escaped to a new life in Coney Island, New York, while Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul.
