BWW TV: Up Close and Personal with the PHANTOM Tour Cast for Their BC/EFA Benefit Concert!

BroadwayWorld TV's Los Angeles Producer and on-air Host Michael Sterling was on the red carpet getting up close and personal with the U.S. Touring Cast of Cameron Mackintosh's new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of The Opera when they presented a one-night-only cabaret concert July 20, 2015 at the historic El Portal Theater in the NoHo Arts District of North Hollywood. The event, titled Oscar Unmasked, featured over 40 Academy Award-winning songs, and raised $10,000 for The Actors Fund and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The spectacular evening was hosted by Edward Staudenmayer, with Musical Direction by Jamie Johns, and Directed by Edward Juvier. Jamie Johns and Chris Kong were on piano, joined by Tom Haberman on drums and Garry Ianco playing Violin.

Special guests in attendance included Corey Fogelmanis (Disney TV's "Girl Meets World"), Ashley Argota ("The Fosters"), and Lisa Ann Walter ("Scream Queens"), plus over 30 cast members from "The Phantom Of The Opera" tour and alumni of the Broadway production.

The Los Angeles engagement of The Phantom of the Opera, starring Chris Mann as The Phantom, Katie Mann (as Christine Daae) was presented at Hollywood's Pantages Theatre in Hollywood June 11 through August 2, 2015. It is currently being presented in Costa Mesa, CA (August 5 - 16) at the Segerstrom Center, followed by performances in San Francisco at the Orpheum Theatre (August 19 - October 4).
