John Cudia holds the distinct honor of being the first and only actor to have performed both as the The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and Jean Valjean in Les Misérables on Broadway. John’s most recent Broadway run counted him as only the 12th performer to play the Phantom in its historic, record-breaking, 25 years. John recently played Jean Valjean at the Marriott Theater in Chicago where his performance not only earned him critical acclaim but also the Joseph Jefferson Award for “best actor in a musical.” John proudly made his Broadway debut in Les Misérables and enjoyed a long and successful relationship with both Les Miz and Phantom.
John toured the United States and Canada as the Phantom and also has the role of Raoul to his credit. John was raised in Tom’s River, NJ, and was a musical performer from a very early age. He earned his B.A. from Fordham University and then went on to perform leading roles in theaters across the country including Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar, Lieutenant Cable in South Pacific and Tony in West Side Story.
John is now emerging as classical crossover artist. As a featured tenor soloist, John has sung in concert across the country with The Music of Andrew Lloyd Weber, The Omaha Symphony and also with the Orchestra of Saint Peter by the Sea in his home state. He is excited to be making his Lyric Opera of Chicago debut this Spring as Curly in their thrilling new production Oklahoma! Following the Lyric, John will sing his first Alfredo in La Traviata with Lyric Opera of the North.
John is happily married to Broadway actress Kathy Voytko and the proud father of Alena Joyce, 3 and Evelyn Rose, 18 months.
