The three-day run late September will be the production’s only Wisconsin shows in 2019
Four Broadway legends, each of whom has each portrayed the iconic Phantom of the Opera, will return to Northeast Wisconsin to perform a celebration of Broadway and the Great American Songbook at The Grand Oshkosh. Combined, they have performed the role over six thousand times, in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Las Vegas, and beyond.
After an appearance in April 2018, The Four Phantoms will return to The Grand to premiere the 2019-2020 season. For their only 2019 appearance in Wisconsin, the three-day run will land during the third or fourth weekend of September, with the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday dates to be confirmed.
Under the music supervision of two-time Grammy winning composer David Caddick, Phantoms Brent Barrett, Franc D’Ambrosio, Marcus Lovett, and Ciarán Sheehan will return to The Grand Oshkosh stage to revisit the passion of the masked man. The Four Phantoms will be joined by returning special guest Kaley Ann Voorhees, who upon her Broadway debut became the youngest actress to play the role of Christine Daaé in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera at age 20.
After receiving accolades worldwide for their performances in Broadway’s longest running musical, The Four Phantoms will feature solo and group numbers to celebrate the legacies of Broadway and more.
“We are thrilled to be returning to The Grand in 2019,” said Lee Tofanelli, producer of The Four Phantoms in Concert. “The Phantoms remember fondly their previous visit to Oshkosh and the wonderful reception they received. We promise a special show in 2019 and look forward to seeing all of our old and new friends.”
Since their debut appearance at The Grand Oshkosh in April 2018, The Four Phantoms have continued to tour across the nation, including a recent sellout performance at Carnegie Hall. In May, cast member Franc D’Ambrosio received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Cannes Film Festival for his performance as Anthony Corleone in The Godfather III. In September 2019, special guest Kaley Ann Voorhees will again pause her run on Broadway to appear at The Grand Oshkosh.
“How thrilling for our audiences, to have the return of ‘The Phantoms’ to Wisconsin, happen right here at The Grand,” added Joseph Ferlo, Director of The Grand Oshkosh. “This is ‘Big Broadway’ in our music-box jewel of a theatre. I’m grateful that their previous experience here has resulted in a return engagement that remains exclusive to The Grand and its audience. What a giant opening to what will be a great 2019-20 season.”
A Four Phantoms presale will be available to the general public on January 18. For more information and to participate in The Four Phantoms presale, visit TheGrandOshkosh.org.
