The list of people who have played the lead role in Andrew Lloyd Webber's multibillion-dollar franchise "The Phantom of the Opera" is practically endless. So it shouldn't be all that surprising that producers have rather easily rounded up three of those booming voices to mount a national tour.
"Three Phantoms in Concert" -- billed as "An evening of MASK-uline Broadway entertainment" -- comes to the University at Buffalo's Center for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m. next Friday. Craig Schulman, Cris Groenendaal and Ted Keegan are all Broadway vets whose stints as the Phantom himself ranged from a few dozen performances to, in Groenendaal's case, 860.
Aside from the beloved show that brings them together, these three menacing tenors will sing hits from shows such as "Les Miserables," "My Fair Lady," "Guys and Dolls," "Oklahoma!" and "Sweeney Todd."
Tickets are $24 to $38. More information on the show can be found by calling 645-ARTS or visiting www.ubcfa.org.
