We try to focus on events in and around Hollywood (this is Hollywood Gothique, after all), but Orange County is close enough for most Los Angeles residents to make the drive if there's something they really, really want to see. For those who have yet to see a live production of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, this may be such an occasion.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical will be at the Orange County Performing Arts Center from March 26 through April 19.

Unfortunately, individual tickets for this production are not on sale yet; at the moment, only multiple-show subscriptions are being sold.
The play was turned into an indifferent film in 2004, directed by Joel Schumacher, but the movie came nowhere near equalling the box office appeal of the live production, which has been pleasing fans for decades.
