Watch the Chandelier Rise Over Broadway's Phantom of the Opera Again
Broadway's longest-running show has restarted performances.
On Friday, The Phantom of the Opera recommenced performances at Broadway's Majestic Theatre. Phantom is the longest-running show in Broadway history, with a nearly unbroken run of performances dating back to 1988. Like every show on Broadway, Phantom had to close its doors in March 2020 for the Covid-19 shutdown.
