Seemingly born to be a leading man, Byron Nease has enjoyed tremendous success as a performer. He made his Broadway debut with the legendary Angela Lansbury in Mame, playing the role of Patrick. Nease co-stared in the stage production of Annie Get Your Gun with veteran actress Bonnie Franklin. Audiences across the U.S. have thrilled to his portrayals in Camelot, A Little Night Music, West Side Story, Carousel, and South Pacific, to name a few. His portrayal of Raoul in Andrew Lloyd Webers The Phantom of the Opera contrasted sharply to his role as the Phantom in the beautiful Kopit/Yeston Phantom.

Nease made his debut in the role of Raoul with the national Canadian production of The Phantom of the Opera. He played the role and toured with the production for over 5 years. Nease lends his vocal talents to the multi-platinum selling Canadian Cast Recording of The Phantom of the Opera.

The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running production in the history of Broadway and it has been deemed the most successful world-wide entertainment venture of all time.
