‘Phantom’ hits 10,000 performances!

Broadway’s longest running hit, The Phantom of the Opera, hit 10,000 performances this past Saturday. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical has been running continuously at the Majestic Theatre (located on New York City’s famed ‘great white way’) since opening night took place over twenty years ago back on January 26th, 1988, with many of the same cast members still intact. This accolade follows many others of very long running shows, something of a modern phenomena. In the history of Broadway it has been more common for a show to pack a punch with a much smaller run of a few months, with revivals every few years. Recently though the trend is to keep successful shows running for as long as possible, obviously, to keep revenue streaming in from the main source of Broadway’s financial success, tourists. With that said, congratulations are still in store for Phantom, here’s to yet another 10,000 performances!
