The Majestic Theatre opened in 1927, the sixth and last theatre built for the Chanin brothers. Designed by Herbert J. Krapp, it remains among the largest of the Broadway theatres. Since 1988, the Majestic has housed The Phantom of the Opera, which surpassed Cats in 2006 to become the longest-running Broadway show in history.
The longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera debuted in 1988, winning seven Tony Awards® including Best Musical. Based on Gaston Leroux’s horror novel, it tells the enticing story of the Phantom, who haunts the stage of the Paris Opera and subsequently falls in love with a beautiful young soprano. Audiences are in for a thrilling night at the theater to see this timeless tale, accompanied by an unforgettable musical score.
Far beneath the majesty and splendor of the Paris Opera House hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée, Christine Daaé, is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
