Bravi, bravi, bravissimi! Norm Lewis will make history on May 12 when he becomes the first black actor to play the title role in The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. But before he dons the mask and brings the “Music of the Night” to his Christine (Phantom favorite Sierra Boggess), the Tony nominee had a date to meet a very important man: Phantom composer Andrew Lloyd Webber! The pair met on April 3 in New York City to chat about the seven-time Tony-winning musical—and if Lewis looks starstruck, it’s because he’s been dreaming of playing the Phantom on Broadway for years! Check out this Hot Shot of these two talents meeting for the first time in front of the iconic chandelier, then see Lewis haunting the Opera Populaire on Broadway this spring.
