And the Phantom/Les Mis Actor Crossovers Continue…

Recently I heard that Norm Lewis, aka Awesomely Awesome Javert from the 25th anniversary Les Miserables concert, has been cast as the Phantom in the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera. This is yet another example of how it seems the actors from Les Mis seem to inevitably find themselves in Phantom and vice versa. However, one of the nice things about an actor formerly being in Les Mis is that amazing singing skills are required for that, and if you can sing in Les Mis, you can sing in anything. And with as awesome as Norm Lewis was as Javert, I’m confident he’ll do well as the Phantom.

It’s also worthwhile to mention that he’ll be joined by Sierra Boggess as Christine, and Sierra, as we all know, did a phenomenal job in the role for Phantom‘s 25th anniversary.
