Everton chairman Bill Kenwright will produce a touring production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's LOVE NEVER DIES, to debue at the Churchhill Theatre, Bromley in January, 2013, according to rumours posted on WhatsOnStage.com.

"Andrew Lloyd Webber's company is thought to be planning to focus instead on licensing his back-catalogue, with producer Bill Kenwright having "first call" on the touring rights," commented WhatsOnStage.com.

HELL YES IF HAPPENS!!!

I created an LND tour topic a while ago but it seems to have disappeared, ah well.

Hope this happens. I loved LND. It does have it's flaws but I loved the thing overall and was really disappointed when it was cancelled in London.

It would be interesting to see what it looks like because the Melbourne approach really enriched it visually.  I wonder what they could deliver on a tour?

It sounded fantastic when I saw the last matinee. I can see it working on tour but they will have to work out what they are going to do about the US setting. its was meant to look exotic and fantastic  - although they added more in Australia -  and the effect was ruined by  bringing on the old  Paris cast and giving the new exotic US characters, like Fleck, too little to do. Not sure how you do Coney Island or the fantastic show aspects  in a small theatre. Can you do more wow factor cheaply?

When was LND on in America?  I thought it went to Australia only; goodness what have I missed here?

US "setting" - as in, set in the US.

I loved this show, I really did - I can't put my finger on just why I became such a fan ...

Where is the tour information? Wondering what size theatres its touring in? My loval 'biggies' are Mayflower Southampton or Bristol Hippodrome; will they be too big for it do you think? Let's hope it heads my way; I'd love to know
