Broadway’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’ Bows in 2023 ‘Phantom of the Opera’, Longest-running Broadway Show, Ends in 2023


The final performance will be on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2023 at Broadway’s Majestic Theater, The Publicity Office’s Michael Borowski said in an email.

Ahead of the Broadway show’s closing, “Phantom” will celebrate its 35th anniversary on Jan. 26 with director Seth Sklar-Heyn at the helm, Borowski said.

Ticket sales for Broadway shows had slowed during the pandemic and “Phantom” was no exception, recently dropping from 255,000 weekly visitors in May to about 180,000 visitors in September, according to The Broadway League.

International productions of the show will continue, Borowski added. The show, the London show’s flagship, will celebrate its 36th year on October 9, and the recently premiered Melbourne version will also continue.

Phantom’s Mandarin-language version is scheduled to debut in China in 2023, and a Spanish-language venture with Antonio Banderas has been announced.
