Ben Crawford (Photo by Caitlin McNaney for Broadway.com) On Finding His Dark SideI suppose there has to be [a dark side to me] to play this part. You know, sometimes this business can do things to you. And I think what I’ve learned in my career is obviously professionalism and niceness go millions of miles, but there are times where you might have to show your teeth in a sense. So I guess that would be my dark side that we use in the show. Related Shows On the Sexiness of the PhantomIt’s very sexual. I don’t know if I’ve ever played a character so infused with sex. It’s not really charm, but a primal feeling he has. I don’t know if he ultimately would know what to do with it, but there is a lot of sexual tension that kind of oozes from him.On Freaking Out His Baby DaughterShe’s seen me with the mask on. They came between shows one day. I put the mask on and she started to shake. I took it off. And she was OK. Then I put the Red Death—the skull mask—on and she loved that! She loved the skull. So, OK, maybe now she realizes Daddy is putting on a mask so I put the Phantom mask back on. And she [shakes] again. Like, is it cold in here all of the sudden? No, she’s shivering with fright, Ben!On Being the Friggin’ PhantomEveryone knows the Phantom. I think it was Norm Lewis who said—you know, he’s gotten awards, he’s had major accomplishments in his life, but whenever he says, “You know, I played the Phantom…” Oh! The Phantom! People know what that is. And so to don that mask is such an honor in a lot of ways.

Thank you for noticing!” It’s funny because when you calculate the time onstage, it’s only about twenty minutes or so. But you are on in those twenty minutes. There’s no chillin’, no hanging out. You’ve turned the energy meter to eleven. I call it my CrossFit every night.On Making the Phantom His OwnIt’s a really cool opportunity to be able to take the audience on this character’s journey. There are certain points that the character obviously has to hit, but the way you get to those points is all up to the person playing it. And it’s fun to have people come to the show and see things in the character they’ve never seen before. So that artistic fulfillment is definitely there.On Keeping Knives from the PhantomHe can turn on a dime. He’s lived alone his whole life so he doesn’t pick up on social cues. I think he would be a very dangerous guest at a dinner party. He would have the manners and he would obviously come very appropriately dressed, but you just never know. God forbid the food isn’t good. Like an undercooked steak? Or an overcooked steak? I think that would be it. And thank about it—at a dinner party, there’s knives, you know? [Laughs.] That’s the job of [playing] the Phantom—to kind of keep him on the edge. Ben Crawford (Photo by Caitlin McNaney) A devilishly handsome leading man with a killer voice, Ben Crawford has primarily shone on Broadway over the last decade in comedic roles—most notably charming audiences under a pile of prosthetics as Shrek and primping as Veruca Salt’s ridiculous Russian father in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Now the notably nice-guy actor is exploring his dark side, and reaching new heights, as the 16th star to play the title role in The Phantom of the Opera.

A Luxembourg based global wealth consultancy is to enter the UK legal services market by buying a stake in a legal firm newly licensed as an alternative business structure by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Oracle Capital Group said today it is setting up a legal department to enable it to offer ‘legal advisory services to support its international client base, many of whom are entrepreneurs and business owners conducting transactions in, or relocating to, the UK’.The division will be led by Yuliya Andresyuk (pictured) of London firm Y and G Legal. Andresyuk said it would provide advice in four key areas: corporate and M&A; debt financing; intellectual property protection and corporate immigration. Andresyuk said that the tie-up with Oracle would bring advantages to both parties: ‘It allows us to tap in to their pool of clients and the sale of shares will give us a financial injection.’ Y and G Legal applied for ABS status in February. Andresyuk said the process was straightforward: ‘We only had one or two clarifications to make.’Oracle Capital Group was founded in 2002 and headquartered in Luxembourg. It claims to provide ‘comprehensive, tailored and confidential services for high-net-worth individuals and their families’ and has offices in offices London, Geneva, Nassau, Moscow, Almaty and Limassol. Chairman Martin Graham said: ‘We are thrilled to further expand our offering by adding legal advisory services which will be highly in demand from our international client base who require expert guidance when navigating the UK judicial system.’
