Laird Mackintosh is a longtime Broadway actor who had the opportunity and privilege to play the Phantom himself in the final performances of the Phantom of the Opera. The Phantom closed in April after 35 years on Broadway and was Broadway’s longest running show.

Laird discusses playing the Phantom, his long association with the show, and the unpredictable life of being a Broadway actor. In addition, he and I discuss his interest in vintage Ralph Lauren clothing and the business that sprang from it. Plus, Laird is an art lover and an artist so we discuss our mutual admiration for the great John Singer Sargent.
