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

It was a very interesting play. A lot of history behind.
It was unpredictable. It actually forced me to do some research on
the historical facts about 1968.
I can recommend that to everyone who is interested in learning more
and who is open on other cultures.
Loosely adapted from Hedda Gabler, The Wind Cries Mary explores Ibsen's timeless themes of power and gender politics during the high point of the civil rights movement and '60s rock 'n' roll. Philip Kan Gotanda transforms Hedda Gabler into Eiko Hanabi, a Japanese American woman whose strength and intelligence is handcuffed by the burdens of gender and tradition. However, the political and racial climate of 1968 San Francisco could bring about a new model of freedom and choice for minorities and women.
