The Phantom Returns
I just read that Andrew Llyod Webber is once again working on a Phantom of the Opera sequel, which he originally aborted in the late 90's. The next edition is called The Phantom of Manhattan and is told by a dying Madame Giry. Seems after the Phantom disappers at the end of the origianl, he flees to New York City and becomes a wealthy mogal who opens his own opera house to which Christine, who is now married to Rhoul and has a son, comes to perform. Hmmm? I don't know if this sounds cheesy or interesting- maybe a little of both. After seeing the origianl Phantom five times, I would be happy to see what comes next. I'm a sucker for sequels, although they are never as good as the original... other than Toy Story 2.
