Broadway's Phantom Celebrates Anniversary

The Phantom of the OperaThat's right theatre fans. Broadway's longest running show is celebrating a birthday. The Phantom of the Opera, which first premiered in London in September 1986, will celebrate it's thirtieth anniversary on January 26. Growing up in a small town in the Midwest, my only exposure to theatre was the shows I starred in during my junior and high school career.

Then my junior year I discovered a musical that would change my life. Now up until that point, the only composers that I was familiar with were Rodgers and Hammerstein and Charles Strouse. So imagine my surprise when I heard the opening chords of the overture. Suffice to say it didn't take very long before I was hooked.

Cut to almost five years later, and I finally got to see the show live and in person. Now I know what you're thinking. Did I love it? You better believe I did. Even all these years later, it still remains one of my favorite theatrical experiences of all time. Here's to another thirty years. Until next time theatre fans.
