See Andrew Lloyd Webber's world-famous musical The Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic Theater in New York City.
The Phantom of the Opera, based on the classic novel by Gaston Leroux, tells the story of the hideously-deformed Phantom who lurks in the catacombs beneath the stage of the Paris Opera, exercising a reign of terror over its occupants in his quest to turn the young soprano he loves into a star.
The musical, directed by Harold Prince and produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Company, Inc., is the most successful stage musical of all time, with worldwide ticket sales exceeding $3.2 billion (far surpassing the highest-grossing film, Titanic, which has grossed $1.9 billion worldwide). The winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the New York production has been seen by 10 million people and grossed over $550 million. Worldwide, Phantom has been seen by more than 100 million people.
The longest-running show currently playing on Broadway, The Phantom of the Opera became the second longest-running show in Broadway history on February 4, 2003 when it played performance #6,681 and surpassed the 6,680 performance run of Les Miserables, putting it in second place behind Cats.
