We're going to hit the Theatrical Outfit/Aurora Theatre joint production of the musical The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the Rialto Theatre downtown. This is the team that created the hit productions of Memphis and In the Heights the past two years!
Thanks to the support of Theatrial Outfit and Rainbros, we're able to offer discounted $20 tickets to this show. Just follow the ticketing link and use the promotional code 'RAINBROS' to get this pricing.
Curtain time will be 7:30 and we'll figure out a restaurant downtown to meet for drinks and snacks beforehand.
1482. Paris, France. Quasimodo, a deformed bell ringer in a cold, cathedral tower discovers his inner strength. A conflicted priest, Frollo, battles the specter of damnation. Phoebus, a dashing soldier shuns duty to pursue Esmeralda, a beautiful Gypsy dancer. And at every turn, a malevolent force propels each of them toward fate. This musical retelling of the beloved medieval love story features a lush score by Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) — the only stage collaboration between the two giants of the American musical theatre.
Director Justin Anderson's thoughts on the musical:
“At its heart, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a story of faith: a faith in something bigger than us, and the faith that we are something bigger. When the fire of our life burns away the given circumstances of socio-economic status, ethnicity, gender, creed, handicap and hardship, we are just people … people who long for love, acceptance, and wholeness. In times like these that seem so unclear, I can’t think of a better hope-filled story to pierce through the darkness and remind us of that truth.
