Performances play the Cadillac Palace Theatre through Jan. 5, 2008, and continue in other markets into 2008.

The Harold Prince production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical is the longest-running show in Broadway history.

Also featured in the tour cast are Sara Jean Ford as the young soprano, Christine; Greg Mills as Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny; Kim Stengel as Carlotta Giudicelli; D.C. Anderson as Monsieur André; Bruce Winant as Monsieur Firmin; Rebecca Judd as Madame Giry; John Whitney as Ubaldo Piangi; and Polly Baird as Meg.

At certain performances, Sarah Lawrence plays the role of Christine.

Jason Mills returns to the national tour directly from the Broadway cast of Phantom, where he was seen as both the Phantom and Raoul. He was in the original cast of Forbidden Broadway: SVU and can be heard on the cast recording. New York credits include the Carnegie Hall South Pacific (also the PBS broadcast), Pardon My English and The New Moon (recording) at City Center Encores!, and the new musicals Lonely Rhymes, Illyria and The Taxi Cabaret for the Prospect Theater Company.

Mills succeeds John Cudia in the role of The Phantom.
