Dublin-born tenor Ciarán Sheehan began his career in a rock band while he was a student at Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville. He headed to New York to study acting and got a big break when he came under the mentorship of legendary Broadway director Hal Prince. Sheehan made his Broadway debut in the original production of Les Miserables, playing Babet and Marius. Soon after, Prince cast Sheehan in The Phantom of the Opera – first as Raoul, then in the coveted role of the Phantom. Ciarán Sheehan has worked with the award-winning Irish Repertory Theatre Company, including a performance in Frank McCourt’s The Irish…and how they got that way… More recently he taught at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, using the healing power of music to transform lives.
