"The Phantom of the Opera" Broadway show is based on the classic novel by Gaston Leroux. It tells the story of a mysterious masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, and the beautiful young soprano, Christine, he stalks, um, I mean, falls madly in love with.

Although this production is an updated version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber original, producers say it retains familiar elements of the music, script, and lyrics as well as the Tony Award-winning costume design. Dates and ticket details can be found HERE.
