Andrew Lloyd Webber On How Michael Jackson Could Easily Have Been The Phantom

The composer behind Cats, Evita and The Phantom of the Opera recalls how Michael Jackson hung around the theatre early in Phantom's New York run - and how he had a keen interest in starring in the film.

Andrew talks about the idea of Michael Jackson playing the Phantom:
"He could have easily have been the Phantom. I think it would have been a very interesting, different take on it. He had a very good voice. I suspect he would have sung it quite well."
