Cadillac Palace Theatre | Chicago, Illinois
Experience the enchantment of this classic tale, as Phantom Of The Opera comes to Cadillac Palace Theatre on Saturday 31st December 2016! This fresh take on the award-winning, world-famous musical has been headed up by original producer Cameron Mackintosh, Cameron Mackintosh, who was also responsible for bringing the smash hits "Cats," "Les Miserables" and "Miss Saigon" to the stage!
"Four words sum up the unstoppable success of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s triumphant re-working of this vintage spine-tingling melodrama. Stars, spectacle, score and story.
Together they add up to that old magic ingredient: theatricality. There is simply nothing on earth to transport you so quickly or so far into phantasy than a feast of illusions.
…As for the score, it soars and instils itself into the mind like some half-forgotten refrain from Verdi, taking the story line on in great sweeps of musical sound. In its unabashed romanticism it reminds us that the Phantom is at heart a simple take of unrequited love, as inspiring and moving it its way as Romeo and Juliet, or more appropriately Beauty and the Beast." – Daily Mail
