Show & Tell: Three Phantoms in Concert

The Fox Valley Symphony's Three Phantoms in Concert delivered and exceeded the expectations promised by Craig Schulman. One could envision every show as the three Broadway tenors Craig Schulman, Brad Little and Ted Keegan took us on a magical journey with songs from some of Broadway's most popular musicals. 

Signature songs from My Fair Lady, Camelot, Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, and others brought cheers of “bravo” and thunderous applause from the audience. You could close your eyes and recall Richard Kiley’s performance in Man of La Mancha, when Ted Keegan sang the “Impossible Dream.” 

It was an enjoyable evening for all including the three tenors as they entertained everyone with their humor, stories and songs. Following their performance of “Music of the Night,” they received a standing ovation that did not end until Craig Schulman asked the audience to be seated. There were no sets or costumes, but Broadway came alive at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center last night backed by the full orchestra of the Fox Valley Symphony.
