Lewis will star opposite Sierra Boggess, who has performed the role of Christine on Broadway before. This isn't the first time Lewis and Boggess have shared the stage. The duo performed together in the 2008 Broadway version of The Little Mermaid, he as King Triton and she as Ariel. So, this will be quite the role reversal, if you ask us.
Scandal superfans will recognize Lewis as one of Olivia Pope's season three love interests, Senator Edison Davis. That match didn't work out so well — who can compete with the prez, after all? And, Lewis will step into an even more (famously) doomed romance as the Phantom. But, even if love isn't in the cards for his character, this groundbreaking role is definitely a step in the right direction for Lewis — and for Broadway. (Variety)
