PHANTOM Ends Run in Las Vegas September 2, 2012
After more than six years and nearly 2,700 performances, Phantom-The Las Vegas Spectacular ends its historic run at The Venetian today, September 2, 2012. This stunning theatrical spectacle will never be seen again once the final curtain closes in Las Vegas.
"All involved are very proud of the success that Phantom has achieved here in Las Vegas at The Venetian," says Scott Zeiger, co-CEO of Base Entertainment, the show's co-producer. "Since opening night, critics and fans alike have recognized this production of Phantom is unlike any they have ever seen, or will ever see again. We've had a triumphant run by any measure."
Featuring every beloved Andrew Lloyd Webber song from the original, this lavish production of Phantom-The Las Vegas Spectacular thrills audiences six nights a week at The Venetian, in a unique and magnificent custom built replica of the famed Paris Opera House. The production is directed by 21-time Tony Award winner Hal Prince, the show's original director, and guided by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
"The Las Vegas production of Phantom took all of the classic elements of the show and added unique aspects that created a whole new experience," said Lloyd Webber. "It enjoyed remarkable success in Las Vegas, was enjoyed by millions of fans and proved that a timeless love story told in a fantastic theater will always be in vogue."
"For six years Phantom-The Las Vegas Spectacular has provided guests and fans with an amazing experience in our exceptional theatre," said John Caparella, president and COO of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo. "The Venetian has always been committed to bringing our visitors top-notch entertainment and Phantom certainly fit that bill. We look forward to sharing our new entertainment offerings with everyone very soon."
Phantom at The Venetian is produced by The Really Useful Theatre Company Inc. and Base Entertainment.
