Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis and Sierra Boggess have been announced to star in the Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's long-running hit The Phantom of the Opera, beginning May 12 at the Majestic Theatre.

Lewis and Boggess, who will star in the respective roles of The Phantom and Christine, previously co-starred in the father-daughter roles of King Triton and Ariel, respectively, in the 2007 Broadway production of The Little Mermaid.
Lewis will become the first African-American performer to star as the Phantom in the New York production. Tony Award nominee Robert Guillaume succeeded original star Michael Crawford in the Los Angeles production.
