Are you a Phantom Fan?
When my mom and I went on our Mother / Daughter trip one year, our destination was New York..
I had been in college and my mom had never been...
So, us two South Georgia Gals took off to the big city...
(Mental note.. BLOG POST)
Anyways, of course, one of the "must do" was go to a Broad Way Show..
One was Phantom. It was PHENOMENAL. I loved it..
Not sure about my mom, but I know I did..
I now own Phantom on DVD, it was that good!!!
So, when I heard that they were releasing "Love Never Dies" I knew it was one that I really would want to see... Now, I get to! Why? Because on May 29th... It will be available on Blu Ray and DVD!!!!

The year is 1907 and ten years have passed since the Phantom’s disappearance from the Paris Opera House. He has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love - Christine Daaé. Now one of the world’s finest sopranos, Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul. So, it is with excitement she accepts an invitation to travel to New York and perform at a renowned opera house. In a final bid to win back her love, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan, to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island… not knowing what is in store for them.
