Andrew Lloyd Webber has blown the world away with his delicate and moving music in the production of "The Phantom of the Opera." Based on the 1910 French novel, "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra" by Gaston Leroux, the musical has been a hit since its opening in 1986. The Auditorium Theatre, at 885 E. Main St., will present eight productions of the show running from Wednesday-Sunday, April 16-27. Performances run Tuesday-Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday, at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 & 8 p.m., and Sunday at 1 & 6:30 p.m. Tickets begin at $37.50. For more information on the show, visit rbtl.org.
After the show on Sunday, April 20, don't miss out on Phantom: Unmasked, an after-hours cabaret event to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. The cast of the show will be there, as well as silent auctions, raffle prices, and more. The event begins after the show (approximately 10 p.m.) at 140 Alex Bar and Grill, at 140 Alexander St. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door and can be purchased at Voluptas-96410.ticketbud.com/phantom-unmasked.
