Meeting the Cast

Frank Mastrone

Frank Mastrone

Frank Mastrone grew up in Monroe, CT and earned a BFA from Central CT State University. He began singing professionally at JP’s Good Time Emporium in Hartford as a “Singing Waiter.” (really…) A few years after moving to NY (and becoming a heck of a waiter) Frank was asked to join the first national tour of CATS, traveling from San Francisco to Boston. Two years later he was the last person hired for the original cast of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, making his Broadway debut in what would turn out to be the longest-running show in Broadway history.

Frank soon took to the road again in the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, eventually joining the NY Company. Off-Broadway was next with TAPESTRY: The Music of Carol King; but the show was short lived and Frank joined a tour of the pop-opera EVITA, as the Tango singer Augustine Magaldi, performing in sixty-one cities in forty-nine weeks! Frank again landed in New York in BIG: The Musical, based on the hit film. Then; JEKYL & HYDE for a nearly four-year run and the chance to understudy and perform the title role dozens of times!

One fascinating experience was touring in the hit show MAMMA MIA from coast to coast for over a year “in a mini-van with his wife and infant triplet daughters!” Other Broadway include SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, CATS, and most recently another six-year run in PHANTOM. Frank has performed in London where he made his Royal Albert Hall debut in the concert version of the Benny Annderson/Blorn Ulvaeus (the ABBA guys) musical KRISTINA (live CD available on DECCA). Other concert appearances include SOUTH PACIFIC (Great performances) and SHOWBOAT at Carnegie Hall, CAMELOT with the NY Philharmonic (Live from Lincoln Center), The Ballroom, Sam’s, The Sands Hotel (Atlantic City), and with the Wallingford Symphony Orchestra.

Frank is married to Ramona Spinelli. They now live in Stamford and keep very busy with their teenage daughters Livia, Ava and Franki.
