The Phantom of the Opera is reportedly ending its Broadway run

The paper faces will no longer be on parade.

That’s right, The Phantom of the Opera is reportedly ending its storied run on Broadway. According to the New York Post, Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s Musical, which has been on Broadway for an impressive 34 years, could end as soon as December 31.

The report suggests this will be the perfect conclusion to the musical’s production as Phantom’s legendary ‘Masquerade’ number takes place on New Year’s Eve. But before you call your musical angel, the Post reports that it is also considering ending next year so that the musical can celebrate its 35th anniversary and have a party afterwards.

The New York Times reported a similar plan, noting that Phantom will celebrate its 35th anniversary on Broadway in January but will drop the chandelier for the last time on February 18.

E! News has reached out to Webber and the Phantom production for comment, but has received no response.
