Following an acclaimed sell-out tour of the United Kingdom, Cameron Mackintosh's spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's phenomenal musical success is now embarking on a brand-new U.S. national tour. The soaring score features the memorable title tune, along with "Masquerade," "The Music of the Night" and "All I Ask of You." Hailed as "stunning, intense and spectacular" by the Sunday Express, this production features a brilliant new design by Paul Brown, costumes by Maria Björnson, new choreography by Scott Ambler and a new staging by director Laurence Connor. The production, overseen by Matthew Bourne and Cameron Mackintosh, boasts many exciting special effects, including the show's legendary chandelier. The Phantom of the Opera traces the tragic love triangle of a beautiful opera singer, her childhood love and the tortured masked genius who lives beneath the Paris Opera House. Learn More

The actors were excellent, especially Karin Aldrich as Lady Macbeth and Evan Buliung as MacDuff. Ben Carlson needs some time to warm up as Macbeth and he'll do so over the run. All in all though, the director seemed too focused on the look of the play (fog, gun shots, blood, and oy ve the video) and not the emotional throughline or just the text. She spent too much time in trying to make this like a movie rather than focus on telling the story. It's Shakespeare - trust him! Jeez. Actors made up for that though. Didn't blow me away, but still worth seeing.
After his award-winning 2006 CST debut as Hamlet, acclaimed Canadian classical actor Ben Carlson returns to CST's stage as Macbeth, joined by celebrated Chicago actress Karen Aldridge as Lady Macbeth. This powerful pair leads a cast of 30 in Artistic Director Barbara Gaines' long-awaited first production of Macbeth, Shakespeare's richly poetic drama of a marriage besieged by a relentless desire for power.
