Continuing a rich history of premier entertainment, The Pierre New York, A Taj Hotel announced three acoustic shows featuring principal cast members from The Phantom of The Opera will lead season three of Broadway At The Pierre, the hotel’s acclaimed cabaret series showcasing musical theater’s brightest stars. The Phantom of The Opera, the longest-running show in Broadway history.
The program picks up a tradition dating back to the 1940s and 50s, when the hotel’s storied Cotillion Room showcased condensed versions of classics such as Anything Goes and The Merry Widow. Sundays with Phantom kicks off on December 15th with Jeremy Stolle (The Phantom), Meghan Picerno (Christine) and John Riddle (Raoul). In 2018, The Pierre welcomed Phantom’s lead cast members for two sold-out shows.
“More than 30 years after its debut, The Phantom of The Opera continues to excite audiences here and all over the world,” said General Manager François-Olivier Luiggi. “We are thrilled to welcome this iconic show back, and give fans the chance to hear cast members share songs and stories in the intimate, elegant setting of our Two E Lounge.”

The Pierre has a special connection to Phantom’s award-winning composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. In his 2018 memoir Unmasked, Baron Lloyd-Webber recalls meeting his musical hero, legendary Broadway composer Richard Rodgers for the first time — in a suite at the hotel.
