From the Academy Award-winning team of Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) comes a lushly-scored retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic story of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero. As the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris, Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer longs to be part of the world below. Held captive by his devious caretaker and uncle, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all. With a sweeping score and powerful story, audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical that proves that being different is what unites us.
