This megamusical classic is the longest-running musical in Broadway history. Indeed, it is entirely likely that there are cast members currently in the show that were born after Phantom's opening night on Broadway over two decades ago. Based on Gaston Leroux's 1909 novel, Phantom centers on the hideously deformed "Phantom" who lurks beneath the Paris Opera and the object of his obsession, the young soprano Christine, whom he is determined to make a star thereby winning her affections. With a timeless score and a design that reinvented the stage spectacular forever, Phantom is a must-see on Broadway.
