BREAKING NEWS: Tonight is a bittersweet and emotional day for the Broadway company of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s longest running smash hit The Phantom of the Opera as the cast says goodbye to one of it’s longtime Michele McConnell as she plays her 2,228th and final performance as “Carlotta” at the Majestic Theatre. She has been with the company since 2010 starting out in the Ensemble before spending these past 6 years as the PRIMA-DONNA star herself.
No word has been made on who will be taking over from McConnell as the new “Carlotta”.
Happy Trails and Bravo Michele on an amazing 2,228 performances.
If the Bravo ‘Housewives’ franchise had ‘The Real Housewives of Broadway,’ Michele McConnell would certainly be a cast member and her opening ‘hook’ line might be, ‘I’m not really a diva, but I play one onstage 8 times a week.’
