The Phantom of the Opera

Oct 14 - Oct 16 2016

LBSC’s Halloween Month celebration of Old Time Radio Horror Classics begins with The Phantom of the Opera. It originally aired on September 13th, 1943, as part of the Lux Radio series, hosted by Cecil B. DeMille. It was based on the 1943 film (which is somewhat different from the 1925 Lon Chaney film and Gaston Leroux’s novel), but instead of using the film’s star Claude Rains, the radio play featured Basil Rathbone as the Phantom. The movie also paired Nelson Eddy and Susanna Foster as Anatole and Christine, and they returned for the radio version. As a result, there is a lot of music in the production, which will be performed live by our cast, along with all the sound effects! Among the many things for which this version is known is that it introduced what became the standard idea of how the Phantom came to be disfigured.
