On this day: the longest run

On this day in 2006, the Phantom of the Opera became the longest running Broadway musical of all time. It jumped in relevance in the late 1980s, and again in 2004-5, when it was made in to a movie, although the 2006 milestone was merely a blip against these other events.

"Phantom" replaced another Lloyd Webber production, Cats, as the longest-running show, although Cats' chart has kept news relevance for a longer period of time, even since it was canceled in 2002.
