A first look at Norm Lewis rehearsing ‘Phantom’ with Andrew Lloyd Webber

ABC News has exclusive video of Norm Lewis rehearsing “Music of the Night” from “Phantom of the Opera” with the musical’s creator, Andrew Lloyd Webber. Webber accompanies Lewis on piano.

Lewis, who will become the first black man to play the Phantom on Broadway, will be featured tonight as the Person of the Week on “World News with Diane Sawyer.” Most recently, he starred with Audra McDonald in Porgy and Bess.

Nice work if you can get it.
