Broadway’s longest-running show made its comeback this week.
The cast of Phantom of the Opera were back singing and dancing on stage for the first time in 19 months after the pandemic shuttered theatres.
Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber swung by the studio to give a pep talk to the cast before they sang through the familiar score.
Within a few weeks of the show going dark in 2020, COVID claimed the life of a member of the wardrobe staff, who’d been with the show for more than three decades.
