Phantom of the Opera Summary:

The story about a disfigured man who takes residence underground in an opera house and falls in love with a choir singer, all the while haunting the theater.

Phantom of the Opera on Broadway Background:

Playing at the Majestic Theatre since January 9, 1988, The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running Broadway show in history by a long shot. The show has now played over 14,000 performances at that theatre and looks poised to play another 14,000.

With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Charles Hart, and a book by Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe, The Phantom of the Opera is based off a French novel called Le Fantôme de l'Opéra (Gaston Leroux). It is the story of a disfigured musical genius who haunts a French opera house, until he becomes fascinated by a young soprano named Christine Daaé. The timeless story of the Phantom of the Opera resonates for audiences of all ages and all generations, as evident by its seemingly perpetual success. The original show on London's West End, featured Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the lead roles, but the Broadway production has transended big celebritie name in favor of an ensemble cast that lifts the production to incredbile heights.

The stage production, acting and musical score are as spectacular as ever and it is clear that Phantom continues to improve with age. Some of the many notable cast members have included Timothy Nolen , Mark Jacoby, Davis Gaines, Thomas Marcus Lovett, Hugh Panaro, Gary Mauer, John Cudia, Lisa Vroman, Patti Cohenour, Rebecca Pitcher, Jennifer Hope Wills, Mary Michael Patterson, Julia Udine and Ali Ewoldt
