Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis and Sierra Boggess took over the roles of The Phantom and Christine Daaé, respectively, in the Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's long-running hit The Phantom of the Opera May 12 at the Majestic Theatre.
Lewis is the first African-American actor to star as the Phantom in the New York production. (Tony Award nominee Robert Guillaume succeeded original star Michael Crawford in the Los Angeles production.)
The engagement marks Boggess' return to the musical, following her appearance in the 25th Anniversary Broadway cast of Phantom in 2013, as well as the 25th Anniversary production at London's Royal Albert Hall.
