“The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.”

“Just show up

Just have a presence

And just make a loud noise

because we all want to be heard”

~~~

“Phantom of the Opera” featuring Norm Lewis begins on Monday, May 12, at the Majestic Theater.  “Phantom of the Opera” is the longest running show in Broadway history. It’s a turn-of-the-century tale of a deformed composer haunting the Paris Opera House, where he lures in a young singer.  Thirteen men have played the role of Phantom on Broadway, but the one making headlines is Norm Lewis.  Norm Lewis plays Sen. Edison Davis on ABC’s “Scandal,” but the role as Phantom is his biggest yet.
