BROADWAY’S LONGEST-RUNNING SHOW OF ALL TIME, THE
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, TO MAKE HISTORY AGAIN!
On Broadway, since its
debut on January 26, 1988, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has grossed over $875
million. Even now – in its incredible 25th year on Broadway – it is
consistently among Broadway’s highest-grossing shows and remains a box office
champ. Earlier this year, the production shattered the house record at The
Majestic by having its best weekly gross in its entire 24-year history. Total
attendance is now over 15 million and it continues to play with no end in
international success – equally staggering – is represented by total worldwide
grosses estimated at over $5.6 billion. This colossal figure makes PHANTOM the
most successful entertainment venture of all time, with revenues higher than
any film or stage play in history, including Titanic, Star Wars and far
surpassing the world’s highest-grossing film Avatar (at $2.8 billion).
Worldwide, over 65,000 performances have been seen by 130 million people in 28
countries and 148 cities in 13 languages. AIN,BECOMING THE FIRST BROADWAY SHOW EVER
TO CELEBRATE 25 YEARS.
