Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular at the Phantom Theatre at the Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino celebrated its 2,000th performance on Feb. 1, complete with a mask-themed cake.
Phantom currently features Anthony Crivello in the title role, along with Kristi Holden as Christine Daaé, Andrew Ragone as Raoul, Joan Sobel as Carlotta, Tina Walsh as Madame Giry, Brianne Kelly Morgan as Meg Giry, John Leslie Wolfe as Monsieur Andre, and Lawson Skala as Monsieur Firmin.
Here's a look at the 2,000th performance celebration:
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
