PHANTOM – THE LAS VEGAS SPECTACULAR
MAKES HISTORY FOR ITS FOURTH ANNIVERSARY
AS AUDIENCE MEMBERS BECOME “ANGELS OF MUSIC”
Critically Acclaimed Las Vegas Production
Assembles Largest Number of “Phantoms” Ever on June 24


LAS VEGAS – In celebration of four fantastic years on the Las Vegas Strip, Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular is bringing the audience in on the glamour, excitement and intrigue of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece. On Thursday, June 24, The Phantom audience at The Venetian will make history as they are transformed into “Angels of Music.” For one record-breaking moment The Phantom Theatre will be home to more than 1800 “Phantoms,” the largest gathering of “Phantoms” ever.

“We are thrilled to invite the audience into the show for this very special moment,” says Scott Zeiger, Co-CEO of BASE Entertainment. “We have had four delightful years in Las Vegas thanks to Phantom’s legions of fans. We felt that the best way to show appreciation to our audience was to invite them to participate in what is sure to be a fun and memorable evening.”

Following the show, audience members will be given their own Phantom mask and under the guidance of “The Phantom,” Tony Award-winner Anthony Crivello, will help set a record for the number of “Phantoms” in one place. The event will be captured on video and memorialized on Phantom’s website and Facebook pages.

“Congratulations to everyone involved in Phantom Las Vegas and to the show’s many loyal fans and supporters. I can’t wait to see the video of this record-breaking moment!” says Lloyd Webber.

“Celebrating our fourth anniversary with a house full of Phantoms is a hell of an idea,” says legendary Director Hal Prince. “I wish I could be there to see it. It’s a real testament to the show’s fan base and a celebration of the success we’ve had at The Venetian.”
