Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular played its 1,000th performance Aug. 25 at The Venetian Resort.
The Nevada production, which is 90 minutes long and more "environmental" — the venue is decorated to be the Paris Opera House — than any other production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit, has run more than two years.
Harold Prince directs, as he did all other worldwide productions.
This lavish production plays eight times a week at The Venetian. Anthony Crivello stars in the title role. According to the producers, "From the moment you enter the magnificent custom-built theatre you are immersed in the storied Paris Opera House and become part of The Phantom's world. Featuring every beloved Andrew Lloyd Webber song from the original, spectacular sets, new effects, and a breathtaking chandelier experience, Phantom is an only-in-Vegas experience."
Phantom at The Venetian is produced by The Really Useful Theatre Company Inc. and BASE Entertainment. Book and music are by Lloyd Webber, lyrics are by Charles Hart, with additional book and lyrics by Richard Stilgoe, drawing on the Gaston Leroux novel.
