The Phantom of the Opera musical continues to entice crowds with the music of the night at the Majestic Theatre. It's considered the most iconic piece of work from composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, with Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe also creating the musical. Moreover, it is the longest-running musical in Broadway history, having played the Majestic since 1988. It became the first musical ever to play 10,000 Broadway performances in 2012.

The Phantom of the Opera tells of the treacherous love triangle centered on Christine Daaé, the rising star at the Paris Opera. The Phantom, a mysterious man who dwells in the opera house's underground and hides a hideous deformity behind a mask, battles with Christine's childhood sweetheart Raoul for Christine's affections. The production boasts a plethora of iconic moments, most notably the infamous chandelier that crashes down from the ceiling of the auditorium. There's also the splendorous dance sequence "Masquerade" as well as the descent into the Phantom’s underground lair during the title song, and the romantic rooftop ballad of “All I Ask of You.” All of these have become synonymous with the standard-bearers of musical theatre.

The musical had its world premiere in London in 1986, winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical. When it transferred to Broadway in 1988, The Phantom of the Opera won Best Musical that year at the Tonys, too, in addition to six other awards. It has been performed in dozens of countries worldwide.

A film adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera was released in December 2004, starring Gerard Butler in the title role. But, the original musical is a Broadway must-see. Visit the angel of music and fall under the Phantom's spell.

He’s here, the phantom of the opera…and he’s been haunting Broadway since 1988. The Phantom of the Opera, by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Charles Hart, and Richard Stilgoe, is currently the longest-running show on Broadway.

Firstly, a Happy Halloween to all our readers and all you Broadway fanatics out there from everyone here at the New York Theatre Guide! And whilst Beetlejuice continues to rule the Netherworld, Elphaba continues to defy gravity in Wicked, and Lord Voldemort continues to chill spines in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, there is one theatrical role so connected to the dark side that it has outlasted them all.

Our The Phantom of the Opera Review

Join me for a little jaunt down memory lane to a magical place that is alive and well. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, directed by theatre legend Harold Prince and produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group, is the longest-running show in Broadway history.
