The longest-running show in Broadway history, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, will offer its 10,000th performance today at 2 PM as a special benefit for The Actors Fund.
Now in its 24th year, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical is the first Broadway show to reach 10,000 performances, and the matinee will mark the historic event.
Patrons who purchased a $500 ticket received prime orchestra seating and the opportunity to join the Broadway cast on stage directly after the curtain call for a champagne toast, and followed by a private post-show reception at Sardi’s with invited PHANTOM alumni, current cast members and special guests. $250 ticket purchase includes prime seating and Sardi’s reception.
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is playing at The Majestic Theatre, located at 245 West 44th Street.
