Here, Andrews sat down with CNN to talk about his experience with The Phantom of the Opera. Since the show's opening, the performer appeared in the ensemble (where he started in 1988) and later went on to play both Firmin and André. He shared stories of forgetting lines, favorite moments in Phantom, and facing an audience of 1,600 people eight performances a week.
Andrew's son-in-law Aaron Galligan-Stierle steps into the role of André 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.
