NEW YORK (AP) — Sierra Boggess is going somewhere eerily familiar — "The Phantom of the Opera."

Producers said Thursday that the actress will reprise the role of Christine Daae to help celebrate the show's 25th anniversary on Broadway. She starts the week of Jan. 21 for what producers say is several weeks.

Boggess originated the role in a Las Vegas production in 2006 and played it for London's 25th anniversary show at The Royal Albert Hall in October 2011. She also originated the role of Christine in "Love Never Dies," Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical sequel.

Bogges is currently starring in London as Fantine in "Les Misérables." Her other Broadway credits include playing the title role in Disney's "The Little Mermaid" and opposite Tyne Daly in the Broadway revival of "Master Class."
