Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world/Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before/Let your soul take you where you long to be... The most successful Broadway musical of all time comes to our stage for only eight performances to celebrate the 100th Birthday of The University of Memphis. Phantom is a fantastic extravagance of soaring ballads and sensational stage effects. A masked figure lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror while he pursues an innocent young soprano. A love story. A horror story. A spectacle like no other. An event not to be missed. www.reallyuseful.com
