…THE EXTRAORDINARY…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. Keegan has performed the role in over 24 States across the country. He has 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 “The Phantom of the Opera” during the half-time show of the NBA All-Star Game.
Keegan 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 He performed unpublished Gershwin at the opening of the George and Ira Gershwin Room at the National Archives in Washington, DC, which The New York Times reviewed as one of the ten best musical events of the year. Keegan 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 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. Keegan hosted the Yuletide Celebration in Indianapolis, singing with the 90-piece Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
Keegan also has performed with the Detroit, Syracuse, Charleston WV, Portland, Ottawa, Baltimore Symphonies and the Dayton Philharmonic as a solo performer. He made his Broadway debut in the highly acclaimed revival of Sweeney Todd, where he was seen as Anthony. Other Broadway and National Tour credits include Cyrano: The Musical, Mordred in Camelot with Robert Goulet, Freddy in My Fair Lady, Herman in The Most Happy Fella, Constantine in Hollywood/Ukraine and another Phantom too – in the European Tour of the Kopit/Yeston version. Keegan is very excited about the release of his first solo CD, “Ted Keegan Sings.”
