Once a mighty organ, now a feeble harmonium, The Times continues to provide a platform (or is that a soapbox) for the online bombardment of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom sequel “Love Never Dies”. Let’s hope that Benedict Nightingale can maintain a dignified detachment from these strident voices. No pressure, Benedict. “I will not even mention the score as, frankly, there is none to mention”. Who decides that such cloth-eared nonsense merits even a line of space in a so-called “quality” newspaper. Does the person who wrote that have an identity or is anonymity a safer bet? Do they exist at all? Everybody is entitled to an opinion – except when they are stupid, stupid, stupid.
