George Lee Andrews is an American actor.

Biography

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Andrews began acting in the 1960s and made his Broadway debut as Frel in the original cast of A Little Night Music, though his number was cut for time.

Andrews is best known for his association with The Phantom of the Opera, where he made records by giving 9,382 performances over 23 years.

Singing

Andrews' singing career spans several decades, beginning with replacing Jerry Orbach in the role of El Gallo in The Fantasticks. From here he appeared in a number of revues and concerts (including Sondheim: A Musical Tribute, where he performed the song "Silly People" which had been cut from A Little Night Music.) He also appeared in musicals such as On the Twentieth Century and Merlin (as the old version of the title character).

During his time with The Phantom of the Opera, Andrews began by playing Passarino and Don Attilio in the original Broadway cast, before alternating between the two managers, Andre and Firmin. After he left the show, he returned to The Fantasticks, this time in the role of Hucklebee.
