After 35 years of captivating audiences on Broadway, “The Phantom of the Opera” has taken its final bow.
The Majestic Theater in New York City, where the iconic musical has been playing, was filled with fans who came to bid farewell to the show.
The musical tells the story of a disfigured musical genius who falls in love and features Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary score.
The show has grossed a staggering 1.3 billion dollars, making it one of the most successful musicals of all time.
Despite extending its run for another eight weeks due to strong ticket sales, producers announced that the rising costs of production and inflation made it unfeasible to continue.
As the final notes of “The Music of the Night” faded, fans and cast members said goodbye to an era of Broadway history.
