The Phantom of the Opera’s Jay Armstrong Johnson celebrated Halloween with his Hocus Pocus-themed extravaganza I Put a Spell on You: The Return of the Sanderson Sisters at Le Poisson Rouge October 28.
The celebration of Disney’s 1993 Halloween fan favorite Hocus Pocus returned for its fourth year, having sold out each of its previous engagements. Johnson again played Winifred Sanderson (the role originated on screen by Bette Midler), alongside Amanda Williams Ware as Mary Sanderson and Allison Robinson as Sarah Sanderson.
