London casts of 25 years.

Post  operafantomet on Sun Apr 03, 2011 9:01 pm

Since it's the year of the 25th anniversary of POTO in London, and Broadway POTO is beating the crap out of the international POTO site on Facebook, I thought I would do something similar to the Bway site here. Namely to post lists and pictures of actors/actresses doing a lead role in Phantom's West End, be it principal, alternate, shared or understudy. However, I don't have complete lists for much of the 90s, and not pictures of everyone either, so feel free to fill out...

I will start with Christine, as that's where I have the most info (and pictures). The cast lists shows principal - alternate - understudy. If the role was shared, as in late 2000, it'll be name/name - understudy. Pictures to come...

October 1986: Sarah Brightman - Claire Moore - Maria Kesselman

London's principal Phantoms, plus most standbys and a few understudies. I won't guarantee all photos are correct. I know some has been saved under wrong name in the past, and although I've tried to correct it as soon as I discover the mistake, I won't guarantee I've discovered them all... But I think it's fairly correct, at least.

Listing the London Megs is worse... Cause for some reason the name of whoever plays Meg is not listed in the souvenir brochures, even though they list Piangi. I have no idea why this is the case, but it's been like that since 1986. So I've gone by the random programmes (=playbills) I have, did a web search for a couple, and guessed the rest (they have ? behind them). The list isn't as accurate as I'd wanted, so feel free to correct/fill out.

The West End cast anno autumn 1991.



According to my previous lists this is the cast:

Julia Goss (Carlotta), Ramon Remedios (Piangi), Dave Willetts (Phantom), Jill Washington (Christine), Mario Frangoulis (Raoul), Sally Smith (Madame Giry), Ethan Freeman (André), Michael Bauer (Firmin) and Kimberley Patridge (Meg Giry). I also recognize Phillip Griffith as Reyer (I think?) and Janos Kurucz as Buquet (I think?).

Any other familiar faces up there?

Yes, I think it's those two as well. Isn't that John Barrowman as Raoul though?

I really can't tell from that semi-big photo. I think they look so much alike! They're both dark "Ken handsome" guys. John Barrowman joined in December 1991, I think, so it can very well be him.


Mario Frangoulis and John Barrowman.

Thank you, London-Phan! About the () Phantoms - when did they start featuring the standby Phantoms? I know the first couple of playbills don't have a standby one, rather they list understudies. Steve Barton and James Patterson were understudy for the role, weren't they? I'm not quite sure when they added the standby position.

Anyone?

I'm not sure why they started having a standby, i think they started in '91 or could have possibly been '90 because thats when James Patterson left so maybe that's when they started with the standby. Before that they seemed to just have regular understudies.

Here's a small tidbit I just ran across:

Patricia (Merrin) was an original member of the London cast of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ as dancer, dance- captain, understudy to Madame Giry (acting singing role) and then went on to be assistant choreographer and assistant resident director.
http://www.lunchbox-productions.com/show_poto/creative.shtm

I had no idea she understudied Madame Giry! Anyone knows if she ever went on?

Courtesy of Markus Tylor: Dress rehearsal in London in 1987, Rebecca Caine has just joined the cast.


Mary Millar, John Aron, Rosemary Ashe, Rebecca Caine, Janet Devenish and the rest of the 1987 London cast in rehearsals. I spot Maria Kesselman in the background too, in Princess costume! Who's the other Princess? And the dresser/seamstress?

And you can say what you want, all of you, but the original Elissa costume kicks ass. It does! Period.

The picture comes from the re-released "Phantom, first year backstage" book by Markus Tylor. It's filled with rare backstage and onstage pictures of the original production and cast members, and some funny anecdotes. But whereas the first was a rather grainy sales catalogue in quality, the new one has glossy pages and also several pages of colour photos. Devon has written more about it here:

Great list operfantomet!

I was curious about the second west end Meg, but couldn't find her. Then I remembered I have a 1988 programme which had her. The missing Meg is Karren Lowe.

I have some Christine understudies to add:

October 1987: Claire Moore - Rebecca Caine - Jill Washington
April 1988: Claire Moore - Jan Hartley-Morris - Jill Washington
October 1988: Claire Moore - Jan Hartley-Morris - Jill Washington
October 1989: Jill Washington - Irén Bartók - Penelope Brister
August 1991: Jill Washington - Irén Bartók - Lisa Hull
December 1991: Shona Lindsay - Lisa Hull - Helen Duncan
February 1992: Shona Lindsay - Lisa Hull - Helen Duncan
June 1992: Shona Lindsay - Lisa Hull - Helen Duncan
August 1993: Jill Washington - Debra Stables - Lisa Waddingham

April 1998: Shona Lindsay - Sarah Ryan - Fay Richardson
August 1998: Jill Washington - Sarah Ryan - Fay Richardson
March 1999: Meredith Braun - Jill Washington - Elisabeth Ebner
June 1999: Charlotte Page - Meredith Braun - Elisabeth Ebner
December 1999: Charlotte Page - Meredith Braun - Claire Louise Hammacott
July 2000: Charlotte Page - Claire Louise Hammacott - Ana Marina
December 2000: Deborah Dutcher - Claire Louise Hammacott - Ana Marina
August 2001: Deborah Dutcher - Claire Louise Hammacott - Amanda Jane Callaghan
March 2002: Celia Graham - Katrina Murphy - Amanda Jane Callaghan

That has filled in a few gaps. One thing i'm still trying to sort out is some of the London Phantom Standby's/Understudies as i think i know most of them but i believe them to be correct but if anyone wants to alter/correct/add etc.. then please do. I'll post the list i have so far.
