#3 Phantom of the Opera

This coming Thursday – Sunday, the Phantom of The Opera will be coming to Charlotte.

One of the first Broadway shows to earn the title “classic,” The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running show in the history of Broadway theater. It is also one of the highest-grossing shows, right alongside The Lion King. According to estimates, the Broadway classic has brought in almost $850 million since it debuted at the Majestic Theater in 1988. And that’s not taking into account the West End production in London, which is just as successful. Despite running for nearly three decades, the fantastical production manages to fill theaters around the world.
