The Phantom Unmasks its Record-Breaking Performance

The music of the night was heard up and down Broadway on January 9, when Andrew Lloyd Webber's epic musical The Phantom of the Opera played its 7,486th performance and broke the record for the longest-running show on the Great White Way, displacing Cats for the title. On that fateful night, the curtain call at the Majestic Theatre brought together Phantom cast members past and present as well as producer Cameron Mackintosh, director Harold Prince, choreographer Gillian Lynne and Lord Lloyd Webber himself for an emotional and exciting curtain call. After the record-breaking performance, an enormous gala celebrated the milestone at the Waldorf-Astoria. Here's to another 7,486 performances, Phantom!
