“What makes a monster, and what makes a man?”
Set in Paris, 1482, a band of travelling players arrives to bring the story of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” to another audience. The deformed bell-ringer Quasimodo longs for just one day outside the walls of the legendary cathedral, but his master, the righteous Claude Frollo, is determined to shield him from the outside world. When Quasimodo unexpectedly crosses paths with Esmeralda, a gypsy and an outcast herself, he begins to realize there is more to the world, and to the people in it. When fear and judgment threaten the city and the friends he has come to love, Quasimodo must choose whom to trust – and what he is willing to risk for freedom.
Based on the 1831 novel by Victor Hugo and the 1996 film of the same name, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” bursts into life onstage, framed by the incomparable music and lyrics of Academy Award-winners Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. Featuring memorable songs including “Out There”, “The Bells of Notre Dame”, and “God Help The Outcasts”, this vibrant musical returns to Hugo’s original material in a hard look at humankind, and shines a light into the dark truths of the world.
