Michael Jacobson: Sierra Boggess as Christine in Phantom. She's untouchable, and brought more to the character than any other before. Plus she's friggin Sierra Boggess.
Sierra Boggess, who originated the role of Christine in the Las Vegas production of The Phantom of the Opera, made a special appearance in the Broadway production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical this past winter when the show celebrated its 25th anniversary. Boggess also played Christine in the London world premiere of Love Never Dies, the sequel to Phantom.
