Upon closing, the musical, which will have run for more than six years, will have played nearly 2,700 performances.
The production is directed by 21-time Tony Award winner Hal Prince, the show’s original director, and guided by the musical's composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber.
“All involved are very proud of the success that Phantom has achieved here in Las Vegas at The Venetian,” says Scott Zeiger, co-CEO of BASE Entertainment, the show’s co-producer, in a statement. “Since opening night, critics and fans alike have recognized this production of Phantom is unlike any they have ever seen, or will ever see again. We’ve had a triumphant run by any measure.”
“The Las Vegas production of Phantom took all of the classic elements of the show and added unique aspects that created a whole new experience,” added Lloyd Webber. “It enjoyed remarkable success in Las Vegas, was enjoyed by millions of fans and proved that a timeless love story told in a fantastic theater will always be in vogue.”
