Chris Mann will portray the man behind the mask, ‘The Phantom,’ with Katie Travis as ‘Christine Daaé,’ Storm Lineberger as ‘Raoul,’ Jacquelynne Fontaine as ‘Carlotta Giudicelli,’ David Benoit as ‘Monsieur Firmin,’ Edward Staudenmayer as ‘Monsieur André,’ Anne Kanengeiser as ‘Madame Giry,’ Frank Viveros as ‘Ubaldo Piangi’ and Morgan Cowling as ‘Meg Giry.’

“The Phantom is an edgier character, more like a real person that a romantic mysterious creation,” says Chris Mann in the new TBO article. Mann is a singer who rose to fame on the 2012 edition of NBC’s “The Voice,” and who is the tour’s Phantom.

Chris Mann in Phantom of the OperaMann has released two solo albums since his first, “Roads” in 2012. He also starred the PBS special “Chris Mann In Concert: A Mann For All Seasons” and finished a nationwide tour earlier this year. He joined “Phantom” in the title role in November.

“This production is magnificent and enormous; with a cast of 52, it’s the largest touring show in America,” says Mann in the new post. “To be at the center of this massive machine that travels in 22 trucks and fills the stage is exciting.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “It’s wonderful to have a new production of Phantom touring America now that the show has celebrated over 26 years on Broadway. Director Laurence Connor has done an amazing job and this production has received huge critical acclaim in the UK.”
