It has been announced that the legendary Phantom of the Opera, which is currently celebrating its 26th year of performances in the West End, will feature a brand new cast line-up from next month.
The most high-profile change will be that of the Phantom himself, who will now be portrayed by Marcus Lovett, replacing Peter Joback from September 3rd. This will not be the first time Lovett has been seen on the West End, having previously featured at the Aldwych Theatre in Whistle down the Wind. The actor has also enjoyed success on Broadway, taking a role in the US showing of Les Miserables.
Several other cast changes will also take place, including that of the leading lady Christine, now to be played by Anna O`Byrne, who already has experience of playing the same character in her native Australia.
