Records Are Falling Everywhere
The Phantom of the Opera has just become the longest running Broadway musical ever, having just edged out Cats. The musical has run for 7,486 consecutive performances since 1988. The British composer Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber created both the old and the new champion. That record pales along side of producer, Sir Cameron Mackintosh who now has produced all three of the longest running musicals on Broadway by also being the “money man” for Les Miserables. Nothing suceeds like success. Unless it is the announcement that Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code has just become the best selling fiction book of all time.
