Not one, but three Phantoms
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.
