Not one, but three Phan­toms

The Tribune (NZ) - - EN­JOY -

To play The Phan­tom of the Opera is the pin­na­cle of any mu­si­cal theatre ca­reer and three New Zealand singers have done that and more.

Now the three vo­cal­ists are com­ing to­gether at the Re­gent on Broad­way on Sun­day Au­gust 6 in a pro­gramme of mu­si­cal theatre high­lights, crafted just for them.

The 3 Phan­toms in­clude two men who started their na­tional ca­reers in Palmer­ston North. They are Karl Perigo and Chris Crowe, joined by ra­dio host and lead­ing man, Tim Bev­eridge, who sang the Phan­tom in Aus­tralia.

The 3 Phan­toms are one of the jew­els in an en­ter­tain­ment crown cre­ated by Re­gent on Broad­way Pro­mo­tions for their Re­gent Alive Au­gust Fes­ti­val.

The show will pay homage to the An­drew Lloyd Webber clas­sic mu­si­cal, which re­cently cel­e­brated its 30th an­niver­sary at Lon­don’s West End, and then fea­ture songs from the great pro­duc­tions of the last six decades.

West Side Story first opened on Broad­way in 1957 and the three vo­cal­ists will pay their trib­ute to the 60th an­niver­sary of the Leonard Bern­stein show which broke all box of­fice records at the time. The event also show­cases songs

from such mu­si­cals as Les Mis­er­ables, Carousel, Se­cret Gar­den, Man of La Man­cha, Love Never Dies, Fol­lies, Chess, Jekyll and Hyde and many oth­ers.

But The 3 Phan­toms adds woman’s touch to the show with Re­gent on Broad­way Pro­mo­tions en­gag­ing New Zealand’s finest Chris­tine!

Bar­bara Gra­ham, af­ter an im­pres­sive ca­reer overseas, re­turned to play the fe­male lead­ing role op­po­site Chris Crowe in both Welling­ton and Auck­land.

She’ll join the trio of tenors to recre­ate the role of Chris­tine and join the line-up of songs from the great Broad­way shows.

Cre­ated by Bruce War­wick and Pat Snox­ell, The 3 Phan­toms is more than a pol­ished pro­duc­tion fea­tur­ing the most charis­matic New Zealand artists. Its stun­ning stag­ing and daz­zling light­ing will evoke the drama and ex­cite­ment of many of the most world renowned and cel­e­brated mu­si­cals.

The 3 Phan­toms with Bar­bara Gra­ham and ac­com­pa­nied by Roger Buchanan and Vicki Lee, comes to the Re­gent stage on Au­gust 6 at 6pm. Book­ings can be made at Tick­etDirect.
