Gaston Leroux's story of a disfigured musical genius who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera. One critic has observed: “This mesmerizing “Phantom” is traditional musical theatre in the finest sense. The Tony Award-winning authors of “Nine” have transformed Gaston Leroux' The Phantom of the Opera into a sensation that enraptures audiences and critics with beautiful songs and an expertly crafted book. It is constructed around characters more richly developed than in any other version, including the original novel.”
