Phantom, friends lend voices for Arcadia show

Johnstown — Ciaran Sheehan, a Dublin native who starred in the Broadway and Canadian productions of “Phantom of the Opera,” will bring a company of performers to Windber on Nov. 3.

The 8 p.m. show at Arcadia Theater, 1418 Graham Ave., will feature classics from the Emerald Isle and Broadway favorites.

Sheehan made his Broadway debut in “Les Miserables” and was later cast as the phantom in “Phantom of the Opera” for over 1,000 performances.

He will be accompanied by acclaimed soprano Sarah Pfisterer, who has played over 1,000 performances in the role of Christine in  “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway and across the country.

“On Broadway, she played Magnolia in Harold Prince’s recent revival of ‘Show Boat’ ” Sheehan said.

Also appearing in the show will be Irish-born multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter Gabriel Donohue.

Donohue performs mostly on guitar and piano, but he also plays many more instruments – from bouzouki/mandolin to Irish and exotic percussion.

He toured for three years with the Grammy Award winning Chieftains.

Sue Anderson will provide the piano accompaniment.

Among all her credits, she coached Rex Harrison in the revival of “My Fair Lady.”

  • treadmill-very-fast.jpg Tax deduction for a gym membership?

    April marks another tax season when millions of Americans will deduct expenses related to home ownership, children and education from their annual tax bill. These deductions exist because of their perceived value to society; they encourage behaviors that keep the wheels of the economy turning.

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
