Musical
Original
For over 30 years, The Phantom of the Opera has been the Broadway musical all others are measured against. The timeless story, the unforgettable score, the undeniable obsession that could never die… Winner of seven 1988 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stunning masterwork is more than the longest-running musical in Broadway history—it’s an international phenomenon that unmasks emotions, leaving audiences everywhere breathless.

SYNOPSIS: Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

In accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and under the continued direction of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Broadway shows in New York City suspended performances March 12, 2020. Although too soon to commit to a return date, Broadway theatres extend ticket refunds and exchanges through September 6, 2020. An official return date will be announced at a later time. Ticket holders should reach out to their point of purchase for information regarding exchanges or refunds.
