I've been hoping for Norm to play the Phantom for years... Thrilled he's getting the chance! Hopefully I'll get the chance to see him and Sierra in the show this summer. Very Happy

Norm Lewis sings a snippet from MotN. In related news, I really want to go back to New York now.

As someone who really didn't like Norm's Javert when I saw him in London, I was pleasantly surprised by that clip.

Laird Mackintosh will perform the title role for the week between Hugh's departure and Norm Lewis' first performance.

NYT article on Norm Lewis

Favorite quote:

"And I'm coming at this from the basic level of asking, who is this guy and why is he acting like a baby?"

That's...a very blunt but amusingly accurate way of putting it.  Laughing

I'm happy that Norm is finally getting a chance to play the title role. It was just bad timing on my part that he was scheduled to take over the role two weeks after my trip to NYC. On the plus side, I got to see Laird Mackintosh as the Phantom Smile

I look forward to reading the reports on Norm's interpretation, though!

I'm going to New York this summer (end of July-beginning of August), and I'm really looking forward to him. His voice on MotN has a Brian Stokes Mitchell quality that I really like.


Not that I'd complain if got to see Laird instead, mind...

It probably shows how little I trust the production team when I see an announcement on Facebook about "a new addition to the score" and my first thought is "Oh crap, they're throwing in that dumb song from the movie--or worse, something from LND."  Reinstating the trio honestly didn't even occur to me, even though it's the most obvious choice.

I'm glad to have it back.  Now I'm really looking forward to summer...

I had the same thought, given Sierra's presence.

Aaaaaaand speaking of "Wandering Child," Broadway.com artist Justin "Squigs" Robertson has given us his own Hirschfeld-esque interpretation of said scene:

Probably so for most of the audience.

I have heard one of those unmentionables, and Norm is pretty impressive so far. His "insolent boy..." might be the best I've heard, and his MOTN is very good. I also love the Wandering Child trio. Norm has a surprisingly nice falsetto, surprising since I'd really only heard him as Javert previously.

Yeah, I really love what I've seen of him so far--I think he's got one of the best voices I've heard in the part in recent history. If I have a criticism it's that there are moments when you can tell he hasn't quite settled into the role yet (or it could be opening night jitters--"Hey, you're about to make history in Broadway's longest running show and Andrew Lloyd Webber is in the audience, no pressure"). And that will come with time.

I can never get over how beautiful the lighting in those organ scenes look, how broadway's candelabra are silvered and lit in that blue light and the one by the phantom has that gold light on it.

Hoping of course to see an unmasked photo, maybe they have not yet settled on the colour scheme for his makeup, last I heard they were still testing it on stage to get the balance just right

I love how the Broadway cast photos lately have felt so, umm...I guess "candid" is the best word.  Like they capture all these little moments where you know it's something flowing naturally out of the scene, rather than feeling staged.  The shots right after the unmasking and where Christine and Raoul are about to kiss are particularly lovely.

Post  Mme Reyer Mon May 26, 2014 10:37 pm

Caught the matinee yesterday of the POTO tour in Greenville, SC. Definitely different from the past tour. Staging consisted of a rotating round stage which would open into a smaller black box stage for different scenes. My favorite was the descent into the lair where they open a door at the top onto air and then magically stair slabs come out of the wall!

Some parts felt rushed like the rehearsal for Don Juan. No mirror bride, wedding veil or bouquet in lair, the monkey was different and lived under the organ, a few songs had different words/phrases, and the chandelier was more opulent but definitely more pyrotechnic! Trio sang in Wandering Child, which was different but I didn't like as much personally.

We heard the phantom and Christine alternate which were both good. Ben Jacoby as Raoul leaned toward an angry Raoul. I liked all of the costumes except the ballet dresses in Il Muto.

It was worth seeing and I'd see it again, but it doesn't compare to the original.

I agree, I totally didn't see it coming, and I too feared the worst. But it was a nice lil' thing they did there.
