Ever since The Phantom of the Opera first opened in 1986 in London's West End, the terrifying but vocally gifted man behind the mask has been crashing chandeliers onto stages across the planet. Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece is now the longest running musical on Broadway (more than 12,000 performances to date). The current North American tour, featuring what producers are calling a re-imagined scenic design and 21st century pyrotechnics, will haunt the Morrison Center beginning Wednesday, June 14, and continuing through Sunday, June 25. "The new set design is... well, it's mind blowing," said Derrick Davis, who plays the leading role "Trust me, you'll get your money's worth." Making this production doubly exciting is the fact that Davis is only the third African American actor in history to wear the mask of the Phantom.
