News   PHOTO CALL: Hugh Panaro and Sara Jean Ford Join Broadway's Phantom
Hugh Panaro once again donned the mask of The Phantom of the Opera at Broadway's Majestic Theatre, playing opposite Sara Jean Ford, a touring Christine recently of A Little Night Music, on Sept. 7.

Longtime Phantom John Cudia exited the Harold Prince-directed production of the hit musical by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, as did Jennifer Hope Wills — as the impressionable soprano and object of the Phantom's ardour — on Sept. 4.

Here is a look at the Ford and Panaro’s opening night:


Panaro first joined the New York cast in December 1990 as Raoul, a role he played for over two years and more than 900 performances. In February 1999 he was invited to take over the title role.

Former Phantom national tour star Ford originally made her Phantom (and Broadway) debut with the New York company in March 2007 as the Mirror Bride and the cover for the role of Christine. In September 2007 she took over the role of Christine on the national tour, playing it for nearly a year.
