KISS Frontman PAUL STANLEY Reflects On Starring Role In Toronto Production Of The Phantom Of The Opera - "They Put Me There Because They Felt I Belonged, And Standing Ovations Every Night Must Have Agreed"

Back in 1999, KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley appeared as The Phantom in two extended engagements of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, The Phantom Of The Opera, at Toronto's Pantages Theatre (May 25 - August 1, September 28 - October 31).

In a new interview with Atlanta Jewish Times, Paul reflects on his early acting work, stating: "I was asked to audition in New York, and they sent me to Toronto, where I played the final Phantom of the 10-year run. They put me there because they felt I belonged and standing ovations every night must have agreed.”

The Toronto production of The Phantom Of The Opera opened in September, 1989. It became the longest-running musical in Canadian theatre history.
