As many of you know, HUGH PANARO plays his final performance on Saturday evening, May 3. NORM LEWIS will debut in the title role one week later on Monday evening, May 12.
The week in between Hugh and Norm (the week of May 5), we’re pleased to announce that our own Laird Mackintosh (current Andre as well as Phantom cover) will be playing The Phantom! Laird had previously covered and played the role in the Toronto production, and has gone on several times here in New York the last few months.
In NY, he’s one of only 32 gentlemen to play the man behind the mask: 13 official Phantoms, 4 limited engagement replacements and an additional 15 gentlemen who have gone on in the role as understudies. Laird will move from the understudy category to the limited engagement replacements. (Norm Lewis will become the 14th official Phantom and 33rd gentleman to play the role on Broadway.)

Yep, that was exactly my reaction too.
So I went to see Rocky tonight.
Apparently so did Ramin Karimloo.
Obviously seeing him twice in Les Miserables wasn’t enough.
