Phantom's 25th anniversary will be marked by a Special Gala Performance the night of Jan. 26. While many of the evening’s details are being kept under wraps, the special night will begin with an early 6:30 PM performance at The Majestic Theatre.
Sierra Boggess, who originated the role of Christine in London's Love Never Dies, the sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, joined the Broadway company of Phantom Jan. 21 for a limited engagement. Her leading men are Hugh Panaro as The Phantom and Kyle Barisich as Raoul.
To date, Panaro has played The Phantom with the New York Company over 1,800 times in three different engagements, including his most recent return that began in September 2010. Combined, he has performed (as both The Phantom and Raoul) in over 2,800 performances of the Broadway production.
