Phantom Finishes Run At Venetian In September

All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, Phantom at the Venetian is one of them.

Considered one of Las Vegas’ staple production shows running, Phantom has had a good run for the past five years. The show will close this Fall on September, 2, 2012. The Phantom opened in June 2006.

The show’s company was told in a meeting at the Venetian with Scott Zeiger, the Entertainment co-Chief Executive Officer this week.

The Phantom lead, Anthony Crivello, has expressed that he believes that the decision made was purely business. “I’ll tell you, there was talk about us closing after a year or two, but we kept on going. It is a credit to Scott Zeiger that we held on for as long as we were in tough economic times, around the world and in Las Vegas.”

To keep the show profitable over the years, producers renegotiated union contracts. This past June, which was the Phantom’s fifth show anniversary, Scott Zeiger had expressed much confidence in the production. At the time, Zeiger said “First and foremost, from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Hal Prince all the way to the associate choreographer and dance captain, the show is in great shape. The quality is still at a pinnacle. Any concierge or ticket broker in Las Vegas can recommend this show and be confident that whoever they are recommending it to is going to be highly entertained.”

If ever there was a time to see the Phantom, now’s the time to go! See it before it really is gone.
