Now in it's 23rd record breaking year on Broadway is The Phantom of the Opera. The show which won seven 1988 Tony Awards including Best Musical has been seen by over a 100 million people since it first premiered in the West End in 1986 and has been seen in over 25 countries. The New York production which holds the record as the longest running show in Broadway history has grossed over $5 billion dollars worldwide with the New York production grossing over $715 million. I guess it's a success.
Now unlike most people I have only seen the show once an that was over seventeen years ago. Now as much as I enjoyed the show once was enough for me. Now for those of you who have yet to see it or for those Phantom fanatics that are dying to see it again for the 55th time there is no better time than the present. Yes believe it or not but I recently came across somebody who has seen the Broadway production 54 times.
Scary right? Hey I'm not one to judge. I saw Rent over twenty times and trust me if I could have afforded it that number would be much higher. Anyway back to the reason for today's blog which is to tell you on how you can see Phantom for less. From now thru the end of May you can get excellent seats to this beloved musical for prices that are......wait for it.....below face value. Get your tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera. It's not Broadway's longest running show for nothing.
