After 13,925 performances, “Phantom of the Opera” will draw the curtains for the last time on February 18, 2023.
“Thank you to everyone who has been a part of New York’s nearly 35 years of theater history and experienced a night of music,” wrote the production team of the longest-running Broadway musical on Facebook.
Adding that ticket information will be released soon, the team asked Phantom fans to share their personal stories and experiences with the show in the comments.
According to a Reuters report, Broadway’s flagship store is closing due to declining ticket sales even after New York theaters reopened after the closures.
As the composer and playwright of Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Phantom of the Opera is considered a musical theater classic.
During the most stringent lockdown, the composer and playwright The Phantom streamed online for free under the label “The Show Must Go On.” Like the theatrical shows, the free stream proved to be a huge success.
Based on the 1910 French novel by Gaston Leroux, it tells the story of the mysterious half-masked musical genius Phantom. He lives under the Paris Opera House and is obsessed with the beautiful soprano Christine Daaé. — LA, GMA News
