Love Never Dies. The 2010 Musical.
Listening to the disembarkation scene again recently, I noticed for the first time a discrepancy between what the pressmen claim about Christine's public appearances ("Your first concert in years") and about Raoul's income ("My wife is an artist!"/"Her art is paying off your gambling debts")|
I remembered this as portraying Christine as the breadwinner, but in fact, if she hasn't been singing, she hasn't been earning!
If Christine hasn't sung professionally in years, isn't the implication that Raoul has only just taken up gambling (requiring his wife to return to the stage?) Or, I suppose, that he has only just run out of money...
