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

Directed by David Bell
East meets West head-on in this hilarious 1940s-style update of a Gilbert and Sullivan favorite with music transmuted into blues, swing, hot gospel, scorching torch songs and a homage to the Andrew Sisters' that is a show-stopper. This tap-dancing, zoot-suited comedy is certain to provide the ideal evening out for the whole family.
Drury Lane has benefited from the unique vision of David Bell since the very beginning: In 1984 he directed the company's first show, Give My Regards to Broadway. David's international credits include London and Broadway successes as well as countless awards.
Having directed and choreographed 10 productions of Hot Mikado, David says of the experience, "There is something about the high octane - “Zoot Suited” swing dancing, the diverse rhythm and Blues, Gospel and Big Band score, and the good-natured old-fashioned clowning – that has captured the imagination of. . .audiences over the years."
