Produced by Cameron Mackintosh and directed by the late Harold Prince, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history, having played at The Majestic Theatre for 34 years. The original production premiered in London's West End in 1986, transferring to Broadway in 1988. Based on the Gaston Leroux novel, the work centers on a mysterious Phantom who lives beneath the Paris Opera House and the young singer who becomes his obsession.
The deadline for audition tapes is August 26 at 6PM ET.
