After 9,382 shows of The Phantom of the Opera, George Lee Andrews, currently playing the role of André, says goodbye to the Broadway company and exits the longest-running Broadway musical Sept. 3.


Here, Andrews sits down with CBS' Jan Crawford and talks about his 23 years with Phantom of the Opera. The performer was recognized by Guinness World Record as the longest-running actor in the same Broadway show; he appeared in the ensemble (where he started in 1988) and later played both Firmin and André.

Andrew's son-in-law Aaron Galligan-Stierle will step into the role following his departure. Galligan-Stierle created the role of Henry Ford in the Broadway revival of Ragtime, and made his Broadway debut as Papa Who in Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
