Sir Cameron Mackintosh on “Phantom of the Opera”

Famed British theatrical producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh joined Dean Richards to discuss the recent revival of the beloved theater classic Phantom of the Opera as it begins its national tour, including an extended shop in Chicago.

Julia Udine who plays Christine and Ben Jacoby who plays Raoul stopped by WGN TV to chat with Dean and perform their favorite song, “All I Ask Of You,” together. You can watch the performances here.

    Typo: in the introduction to the interview, the show will have an extended "stop" in Chicago, not an extended "shop." ;-)

    NOT a typo. Sir Cameron said that new Phantom, Cooper Grodin, had appeared in Into the Woods on Broadway. The production was the off-Broadway, Public Theater production, part of the Shakespeare in the Park season.
    Close, but Grodin has never been on Broadway. None of the leads, have.

    Supporting cast…yes.
