BroadwayWorld was there for their first curtain call and below, you can check it out, along with their backstage meeting with Andrew Lloyd Webber himself! The audience erupted in cheers last night, as history was made when Norm Lewis became the first African-American performer to star as The Phantom in the Broadway production. In attendance were stars ranging from Lea DeLaria, to Sherie Rene Scott and icons like Andre De Shields and Melba Moore, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and director Hal Price. They were joined by with friends, family, press and of course the show's usual sold-out audience. Following a long line of Phantoms, in a role created by Michael Crawford, Lewis brought his own unique talents, heart and incredible voice to the show, and has wonderful chemistry with his co-star, who gets even better each time she's returned to the show. If you're thinking about getting tickets - GO, you'll thank us later.' (more...)
