Famed Broadway director Harold Prince will give the keynote address and share his experience of putting together The Phantom of the Opera at a “Phantom Fans Week” Sept. 16 through 20 in Las Vegas.
Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular — Prince’s 95-minute environmental adaptation of the smash by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber at the Venetian Resort — will host the week-long celebration of all things Phantom.
That week, according to producers, fans will get exclusive access to the show at special ‘Insider Sessions’ and hear from the biggest names in the Phantom world. With different registration levels available, ranging from $250 to $450 ticket prices, fans can spend a full week or a short weekend.
All registration levels include admission to all six “Insider Sessions,” including the keynote address by multiple Tony Award-winning director Prince, the chance to attend up to four performances of the 90-minute, uniquely-tailored Vegas Phantom and “exclusive access into a grand Masquerade Ball with the cast of Phantom.”
A special dinner with executive producer Scott Zeiger at Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio Restaurant or a Farewell Brunch at Bouchon Restaurant are also offered.
“Insider Sessions” include a Q&A with Tony Award winner Anthony Crivello, who plays The Phantom; meetings with Phantom’s production designer Paul Kelly, associate costume designer Sam Fleming and other personnel who will share their secrets of success.
Phantom was adapted for the sitdown Vegas run in a venue that re-creates the Paris Opera like no other production of the Lloyd Webber musical.
“We’re proud to host the first ever Phantom Fans Week and offer this kind of exclusive access,” said Scott Zeiger, co-CEO of BASE Entertainment and executive producer of Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular. “In addition to hosting this extraordinary affair, we’re also thrilled to have Harold Prince, our illustrious director, return to Las Vegas.”
Packages start at $250 a person with special discounts for those who register early.
Phantom at The Venetian is produced by The Really Useful Theatre Company Inc. and BASE Entertainment.
Phantom performs at The Venetian Resort on Monday and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday at 7 p.m. (dark Sunday).

There have been a few Ticketmaster issues regarding registration, which you can read about on my blog.
On the one hand you say that the event is tailored to flexible timing, but on the other hand all registrations prices include all sessions. How do you figure?
