Special Episode: John Riddle on Reopening ‘Phantom’ as Old Will Forte


On today’s episode, Matt Tamanini is in conversation with “The Phantom of the Opera’s” Viscount Raoul de Chagny John Riddle. The pair talk about John’s tenure in “Phantom” before and after the pandemic, the historic run of Emilie Kouatchou as Christine Daaé, and the similarities and differences between playing Raoul and Hans of the Southern Isles. 

They also discuss their shared Ohio heritage, whether or not John looks like Will Forte during “Phantom’s” opening scene, and whether or not he would make for a good Elphaba.
