Beginning Friday, January 10th, Brad Little becomes the actor who slips behind the mask as the elusive Phantom along with Julie Hanson who becomes the young soprano, Christine, when they take over the leading roles in the national tour of The Phantom Of the Opera. The Northwest Ohio premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s international award-winning musical, directed by Harold Prince, is now in its final weeks at the Stranahan Theater in Toledo through Sunday, January 19th.
Brad Little, a native Californian, is thrilled to have finished recording Brad Little Unmasked, his debut CD of Broadway music. Mr. Little is back on the road playing ‘The Phantom’ after a three-year hiatus. 2002 found Brad playing The Phantom on Broadway, in the off-Broadway musical The Prince and the Pauper and many shows in regional theatre across the country. He has been a part of The Phantom of the Opera Broadway and touring family since 1994, from the chorus to playing Raoul and now The Phantom. His other Broadway and National Tour credits include Cyrano The Musical, Fiddler on the Roof with Topol, and the Lincoln Center production of Anything Goes.
Julie Hanson is happy to be back on tour with The Phantom of the Opera after a short hiatus from the show. A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, she studied voice at Oklahoma City University for three years before making her National Tour debut with The Phantom of the Opera. In addition to numerous stage credits, Julie has enjoyed performing as a soloist in major choral works such as Mozart’s Requiem and Handel’s Messiah.
Mr. Little succeeds Ted Keegan in the role of The Phantom. Ms. Hanson succeeds Rebecca Pitcher as Christine.
