BWW Blog: A Trip to Broadway to See the Current Dynamic Cast of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
by Kelli Curtin - Jul 30, 2014

There is something special about recalling a first trip to Broadway - being in the heart of New York City, the bustling crowds, The Lights, the anticipation . . . this is what a trip to see a show on Broadway is all about. I was not only fortunate enough to have a chance to see the current cast of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, but I also had a chance to introduce a good friend to her first Broadway show. Even in introducing a friend to the magic of Broadway, the experience was hypnotic and enchanted, and reminded me exactly what it was like to see my first Broadway show. What a better way to introduce someone to theatre than a production of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA in New York City.
