Key Points

After 33 years of mesmerizing audiences, the iconic Phantom of the Opera brings its unprecedented Broadway run to a stunning close, signifying a difficult period of unprecedented closings for the theatre industry.

The ensuing public outrage following the actress’ mistreatment of a deaf woman was so intense that it led to death threats against the actress.

Patti Lupone, a trailblazing Broadway actress, has decided to shockingly revoke her Equity card amid the escalating tension between actors in the Broadway community.


“The one that truly breaks my heart, because it is indeed the longest running Broadway show to date is Phantom of the Opera.”

“It is a new musical about loneliness, found families, and creating some happiness when time is against you.”

“Again, one of my favorite, favorite musicals. And it’s Josh Groban. I, uh, would love to see him live because he’s just an amazing singer.”

“Never mind the fact that maybe the story just wasn’t good. I mean, listen, we all know Andrew Lloyd Weber is definitely a talented man. He’s a little off his rocker, but he’s a talented man.”

“You’re getting paid to act and you’re not putting 100% in. Like, that’s not fair to the people who are paying all this money to come and see it, blah, blah, blah.”

“Maybe it wasn’t her decision. They asked her and she agreed. So I’m not going to put the full blame on her.”
