John Cudia is Broadway’s New Phantom

Starting tonight, John Cudia will take over the title role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. Cudia, the most recent star of the touring production, has been involved with Phantom for nearly ten years. He takes over the role from Howard McGillin, the actor who now holds the record for the world’s longest-running Phantom with an astounding 2,544 performances on Broadway.

And just in case if you haven’t gotten enough Phantom, Andrew Lloyd Webber is currently working on the sequel to the show, Love Never Dies, which is looking to hit Broadway in 2010.
