Michael Crawford Facts
His mother, Doris Dumbell-Smith, died tragically when he was only 21 years old. He was closest to his Irish/Welsh grandmother, Edith Kathleen O'Keefe, who later died at 99.

Won Broadway's 1988 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for "Phantom of the Opera."

When he took up singing seriously again (for the musical "Billy" in 1974) after having left singing to perform in films, he went to singing coach, Ian Adam (who also taught Sarah Brightman, Elaine Paige, Michael Ball, and Sean Connery). At the first meeting, Ian asked Michael to sing something. And when he sang "Danny Boy" Ian remarked that "he was standing underneath a portrait of John McCormack, that hangs in the singing room, and it brought back tremendous memories of how John McCormack sang". After he finished his piece, Ian said, "Well, now I have to tell you. There is a wee bit of work to be done on the top (of his voice), and a wee bit of work, down below. And a little bit in the middle, other than that you have a great voice". And Michael, in reply said, "I am terribly sorry for bothering you and I'll leave now.".
