Broadway

Matthew Murphy

The Phantom of the Opera has been haunting stages across the globe for more than thirty years and is now the longest-running musical in the history of Broadway. Andrew Llloyd Webber’s classic musical returns to Boise’s Morrison Center Wednesday, June 14 and continues for an extended stay through Sunday, June 25.

The star of the current North American tour of Phantom is Derrick Davis, only the third African American actor in the musical’s history to wear the famous mask. Just prior to arriving in Boise, Davis talks with Weekend Edition host George Prentice.
