‘Phantom’ to tour in new production

Mackintosh to produce new staging for launch in early 2012

Cameron Mackintosh will mount a brand new production of legit blockbuster “Phantom of the Opera” for a worldwide tour in early 2012.

Hal Prince’s original 1986 production has been seen by more than 100 million people worldwide. With a gross approaching $5 billion, it’s the world’s biggest-grossing single entertainment.

Following an agreement with Prince, Mackintosh told Variety that the Andrew Lloyd Webber tuner will be produced in an all-new version. Helmed by Laurence Connor, it will feature new sets and costumes by Paul Brown and lighting by three-time Olivier Award winner Paule Constable.

Although all further details remain under wraps, Mackintosh said the production will open at a regional U.K. house. Its trajectory will then mimic that of his new, similarly rescaled production of “Les Miserables,” also helmed by Connor, which is currently on a three-year world tour that regularly breaks box office records.
