Derrick Davis brings new kind of Phantom to the Opera

When “The Phantom of the Opera” returns to South Florida for seemingly the umpteenth time on March 23, there will be something new about this particular production.

Derrick Davis, who plays the title role in the musical coming to West Palm Beach for a nine-day run, is the third African American to don the mask and the first to do so in a national tour.

“I’ve taken it on as my responsibility the march forward in time and the forward progress of this,” Davis, whose parents are Panamanian, says. “That I’m standing in the doorway that has been opened to me. In this role, there has only been three. It’s mind-blowing. In theater and the arts, I feel that if a doorway has been open, then it is our responsibility to continue that and respect it.”

Robert Guillaume (“Soap,” “Benson”) became the first actor of color to play the Phantom when the show

Lisa Gardner’s new thriller brings two favorite characters out of mothballs

Lisa Gardner let readers be part of the creative process for “Right Behind You,” her new thriller.

Two years ago, the bestselling author (more than 22 million books in print) conducted a Facebook poll, allowing popular vote to determine which of her series characters would star in her 2017 book.

“I figured they would want another book with D.D. Warren (who is featured in eight novels, including last year’s ‘Find Her’) or Tessa Leoni (three novels),” Gardner says. “They’re the characters I had been concentrating on lately.
