Producers Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group announced today that the longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, directed by Harold Prince, will proudly welcome a starry leading combination beginning Monday, May 12.*
Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis, who most recently starred on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, returns to Broadway as the legendary ” Phantom”. Joining him on stage will be Broadway and West End star Sierra Boggess, who has played “Christine Daaé” in both the London 25th Anniversary production at Royal Albert Hall and the Broadway 25th Anniversary cast.
Cameron Mackintosh released this statement:
“Having worked with Norm since the 90s, when he played John in Miss Saigon on Broadway, and then Javert on Broadway in Les Misérables in 2006, I couldn’t be more thrilled that he is now joining Phantom, matched with Sierra – one of the finest Christines ever. It’s hard to imagine a more exciting pairing, as the show continues its phenomenal, history-making run at The Majestic.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “This is wonderful news! I can’t wait to see Sierra Boggess and Norm Lewis perform together as ‘Christine’ and ‘Phantom’. Broadway audiences are in for a treat.”
