It has production design by the late Maria Björnson, lighting by Andrew Bridge, and sound by Martin Levan.

The cast currently features Hugh Panaro (The Phantom), Trista Moldovan (Christine), Kyle Barisich (Raoul), Michele McConnell (Carlotta), Aaron Galigan-Stierle (Monsieur André), Kevin Ligon (Monsieur Firmin), Christian Sêbek (Piangi), Heather McFadden (Meg Giry), and Cristin J. Hubbard (Madame Giry). At certain performances, Marni Raab plays Christine.

Patrons who purchase a $500 ticket will receive prime orchestra seating and the opportunity to join the Broadway cast on stage directly after the curtain call for a champagne toast, and followed by a private post-show reception at Sardi's with invited alumni from the show, current cast members and special guests. $250 ticket purchase includes prime seating and Sardi's reception.
