Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group’s iconic and record-breaking Broadway production, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running show in Broadway history. Directed by the late theater legend Harold Prince, it opened at the Majestic Theater in New York City on January 26, 1988. As much a part of the city’s landscape as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, the blockbuster phenomenon has long been a New York City landmark. It will celebrate its unprecedented 35th anniversary on Thursday, January 26, 2023. After playing a record nearly 14,000 performances to nearly 20 million people, the Broadway production is set to play its final performance on Saturday, February 18, 2023.
