  • Davis has a fine, smoky tenor voice. His final solo at the end of the second act (of The Phantom of The Opera) is one of the best performances of the role that I have ever seen

    Chicago Sun Times
  • The gamut (Davis) portrays during the final scene is masterful

    Oakland Press
  • Derrick Davis as Mufasa is also strong vocally, and his fatherly song to his son, “They Live In You”, is excellent.

    The Sun Chronicle
  • Davis has a deep and resonant voice, particularly well-suited to his role as the great warrior king.

    Cape Cod Times

Derrick Davis is honored and proud to be cast as The Phantom in “The Phantom of the Opera’s” North American Tour.

Derrick looks forward to humbly making history on stage as the first man of African and Latin descent to play the role on the tour as well as being one of the first three African-Americans to ever play the role.
