About Ted Keegan

Ted Keegan is a native of Watertown, New York and a graduate of Ithaca College. He most recently starred in the National Tour of The Phantom of the Opera following a very successful run in the Broadway Company. He also had the great pleasure of appearing as The Phantom on television, performing live from Rockefeller Center for the Today Show on NBC. And he has the distinction of being the actor who has sung the role in front of the largest audience ever, when he made a spectacular flying entrance from the dome of Madison Square Garden singing "Music of the Night" during the half-time show of the NBA All-Star Game. Ted was deeply involved in the George Gershwin Centennial Celebration. He performed unpublished Gershwin at the opening of the George and Ira Gershwin Room at the National Archives in Washington DC, which The New York Times reviewed as one of the 10 best musical events of the year. Ted has also sung Gershwin with Audra McDonald in New York and with Marin Mazzie at the opening of the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. He appeared as well in the Frank Loesser Celebration at Symphony Space in New York City and was a soloist at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall, singing Unheard Bernstein. He hosted the Yuletide Celebration with the 90-piece Indiana Symphony Orchestra during the 1999 holiday season. Ted made his Broadway debut as Anthony in the highly acclaimed revival of Sweeney Todd, and additional Broadway and national tour credits include Cyrano: The Musical, Mordred in the Robert Goulet Camelot, Freddy in My Fair Lady, Herman in The Most Happy Fella, and Constantine in Hollywood/Ukraine. And another Phantom, too-in the European tour of the Kopit/Yeston version.
