Phantom returns to Broadway with a fully remastered original cast recording. With over 40 million copies sold worldwide, The Phantom of the Opera Original Cast Recording is the best-selling cast recording of all time. Originally released in 1987, the original “The Phantom of the Opera” cast recording was the first in British musical history to enter the charts at number one and is now available to stream or purchase in Remastered 2CD and Digital Platforms.
In September, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh announced complete casting for the New York return of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, the longest-running show in Broadway history. Directed by the late theater legend Harold Prince, PHANTOM is set to resume performances on Friday, October 22 at 8PM at The Majestic Theatre (245 West 44th Street) – the musical’s New York home for all 33 record-breaking years.
As much a part of the city landscape as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA remains an iconic New York City landmark. Tickets are on sale via Telecharge.com and in person at the theater’s box office.
Cameron Mackintosh said, “Never in a million years could we have imagined that all of Broadway would be shuttered for nearly a year and a half, but I am thrilled that at last PHANTOM will be back where it belongs at the Majestic Theater from October 22nd in all its gorgeous splendor. It has been an extraordinarily difficult time for all the 125 people who bring PHANTOM to life every performance, so we are all overjoyed to be back rehearsing Broadway’s longest-running musical and eagerly looking forward to the chandelier rising again in front of a full house. So let the audiences in and let the opera begin.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber added, “I am a proud Brit, but Broadway has always been my spiritual home. To have PHANTOM lead the effort to bring our beloved community back to the stage is a moment of immense pride for me. The only heartache is that Hal will not be with us, but when we all return for our first performance on October 22, I know his spirit will be there, cheering our cast, crew, and orchestra on and welcoming audiences back to The Majestic Theatre.”
As previously announced, the complete PHANTOM Orchestra – Broadway’s largest – also returns, under the continued musical supervision of David Caddick with the musical’s original, lush orchestrations.
Broadway is committed to providing healthy and safe facilities for audiences, performers and staff. The Broadway League recently announced that the owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theatres in New York City will require vaccinations for audience members, as well as performers, backstage crew, and theatre staff, for all performances through October 2021. Masks will also be required for audiences inside the theatre, except while eating or drinking in designated locations. Under the policy, guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine in order to attend a show and must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the theatre with their valid ticket. “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
