On episode 10 of the Take Me to the World Musical Theatre Podcast I talk about the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Love Never Dies, which is a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. Spoilers in this episode for both of those shows.
Note: This episode was recorded in April 2020 and as such most theatres (including Broadway, The West End, and National Tours) are suspended for the time being. I’ve still included resources to purchasing tickets for shows (where possible) for whenever these shows open up.

It’s Broadway, Bitch – Spotify Playlist. This has over 2000 songs from different musicals I’ve either seen or have listened to obsessively. Most of the playlist is from stage musicals, but I have a few movie musicals and musical TV shows on here as well. Albums are in random order. Some songs contain strong language and subject matter, so listener discretion is advised.
