Why did no one tell him this was a bad idea?

Dear Andrew Lloyd Webber,

Really?  You made a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera?  A sequel in which the Phantom produces a successful show called "Phantasma" in Coney Island?  A sequel in which Raoul is a drunken gambler and Christine's son Gustave is actually the illegitimate child of the Phantom?  (Sorry if I just ruined the big surprise for you.)

(I know that it sounds like a premise for a Monty Python movie or something, but I am not making this up.)

Andy, Andy, Andy.  Why was I not consulted before this happened?  I feel like I could have somehow stopped this from happening.

Andrew Lloyd Webber:  So, Jules, I've been thinking about creating a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera.

Me:  No.

Andrew Lloyd Webber:  But, it will be amazing!  It's going to be called Love Never Dies and set in Coney Island, of all places!

Me:  No.

Andrew Lloyd Webber:  BUT!

Me:  *Slapping Mr. Webber in the face.*  Pull yourself together, man!  NO!

Alas, I wasn't there to tell him this.  Ah well.

I couldn't agree with you more. I saw the commercial on TV the other day, then looked at the website, then threw up in my mouth a little.

So, so, so, so lame.

Man-O-man...a dude at work was just reading an thing about that and I was just reading your post...That is the most horrible thing I have ever heard...I don't understand how he could think that would be good or even close. Wow.

This is why I love you. Thank you so much for posting this. I feel quite passionate about this subject as well, and quite grateful I'm not the only one who despises the sequel.

I can't help but agree and laugh heartily at your wording. Coney Island....really, Andy? Really? DUUUUMMMMBBB!! I think I'll pass.
