Norm Lewis making history when he becomes (to my knowledge) the third black Phantom worldwide to perform in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera” - and the first ever on Broadway.
He follows in the footsteps of Robert Guillaume, who took over the role from Michael Crawford in Los Angeles, and Nicholas Nkuna, who understudied Jonathan Roxmouth in South Africa.
I am thrilled about these casting news and I’m seriously considering a trip across the pond to see Norm Lewis in the iconic mask.
WHAT. IS THIS REAL LIFE. IF YOU ARE LYING TO ME I WILL FIND YOU AND I WILL SKIN YOU.
I literally never pursued musical theater seriously because I was convinced a black man couldn’t play the Phantom. Representation matters, and this is amazing.
