Michael Crawford created the role of 'The Phantom' in The Phantom of the Opera earning him critical recognition including Broadway's Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, and the Los Angeles Dramalogue Award and Drama Critics Award. His other West End credits include Barnum, Flowers For Algernon, Billy, The Woman in White, and The Wizard of Oz. Most recently, Crawford returned to the West End stage, starring in the musical The Go-Between, which played a limited run at the Apollo Shaftesbury Theater.

Crawford also made a mark with his vocal performance on Phantom, 1987's world-wide hit London cast recording. Other recordings include: the RIAA platinum-certified Michael Crawford Performs Andrew Lloyd Webber; Michael Crawford in Concert, the companion album to his dual Emmy-nominated PBS special; On Eagle's Wings, a collection of sacred songs that were a hit on Billboard's Contemporary Christian chart; and the companion album to EFX, which debuted in Las Vegas with Crawford in the high-profile starring role.

Crawford's numerous screen and stage credits range from the acclaimed film version of Hello Dolly and his much-touted performance in the London staging of Flowers for Algernon to his much-loved character in the 1970's British sit-com Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. The story of Crawford's varied and distinguished 40-year career was told with the release of Parcel Arrived Safely: Tied With String, his autobiography which traces the road from his World War II-era youth to his film work alongside John Lennon and Steve McQueen and his years as the original Phantom.
