Broadway Show

In 1911 Gaston Leroux published Le Fantôme de l’Opéra, introducing it to his readers by explaining how he carried out his own enquiries into the strange events that had occurred in the famous Opera House in the 1880s. he was inspired by the most famous/ haunted theater in France. He tells of how he visited the huge underground lake where the Phantom hid and even stumbled upon the skeletons of “some poor wretches who had been massacred under the Commune in the cellars of the Opera.” His play was not very big when he was alive it was disappointing to the people who read it. It was to be the reading of this serial by a researcher for Universal Pictures which set in motion the chain of events which were to bring the The Phantom of the Opera to the screen for the first time in 1925 and make a star of Lon Chaney Snr. Gaston Leroux was not happy with his fame but he still went to go see the film in 1926 but by then his heath was failing he died in 1927. Now Phantom Of the Opera is one of the greatest plays on Broadway and is shown all around the country.
