The longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, directed by Harold Prince and produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Theatre Company, Inc., will welcome West End star and Platinum-selling Swedish recording star Peter Jöback to the New York cast this summer. Mr. Jöback will assume the title role for a limited engagement from Monday, April 29 through Saturday, August 24, 2012.

Mr. Joback steps in this summer for Hugh Panaro, who was specifically chosen to play 'The Phantom' for New York's 25th Anniversary. Mr. Panaro's long association with the musical stretches back to 1989, when he first played the role of 'Raoul' for almost 1,000 performances. He was later invited to take over the starring role, which he's since done in three separate engagements for over 1,900 performances and counting. His combined PHANTOM performance count in both roles is nearly 3,000 times. Mr. Panaro will return as "The Man Behind the Mask" on Monday, August 26.
