The unique theatre was designed to create an ongoing sense of anticipation with a layout that literally surrounds the audience in action.
The Phantom of the Opera has grossed more than $3 billion worldwide since its London premiere in 1986, having played more than 65,000 performances in 20 countries and 110 cities. After the Broadway opening, the musical went on to sweep the 1988 Tony Awards®, winning seven Tonys®, including Best Musical as well as seven Drama Desk Awards and three Outer Critics Circle Awards. In January 2006, it became the longest-running show in Broadway history, surpassing another of Webber’s greatest hits, Cats.
Now, with an expanded Broadway-caliber cast featuring Tony Award®-winner Anthony Crivello, known for his roles on Broadway in Kiss of the Spider Woman and Les Misérables sharing the title role, Phantom is once again poised to change the face of live theatre.
