Phantoms for Leroux
An Event in Aid of La Cave de Gaston Leroux
Listen to the full Phantoms for Leroux fundraiser
Featuring: Ethan Freeman, Peter Karrie, Jonathan Roxmouth and Mike Sterling!!
On April the 4th at 20.PM Theatreland Radio hosted Phantoms for Leroux, a two hour event on all things Phantom of the Opera. The event, raising money for La Cave De Gaston Leroux featured much loved Phantoms past and present discussing their role and the original classic novel, music from well known and not so well known adaptations and much, much more!
Event organiser and host Dannii Cohen says:
At this moment a famous landmark in France dedicated to The Phantom of the Opera and it’s author Gaston Leroux, “La Cave de Gaston Leroux”, is under threat of closure. This restaurant, devised by the great grandchild of the writer Veronique Leroux, has ran into financial trouble because of the corona restrictions. It would be a great loss as the restaurant is a shrine to the book and its author, with lots of memorabilia on display. Every year fans from all over the world meet up there often becoming friends for life.
As a lifelong Phan I would not wish to see such a beautiful and important place destroyed. This is why I decided to create this event; to hopefully make Phans aware off what we could be losing and hopefully stop it from happening!! I am so grateful that Theatreland has allowed this event to take place on their channel.
