A new Cameron Mackintosh production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic, "The Phantom of the Opera" is headed to Chicago next year as part of a U.S. national tour. The show, running Jan. 22-March 2, 2014 at the Cadillac Palace Theatre here, has been directed by Lawrence Connor, who previously restaged "Les Miserables." The revised edition already has been seen in London.

It's a vastly inferior production to the original, with cheap-looking design and thoughtless direction that doesn't make sense. The UK version was only popular as a result of the strong casting. It's not recommendable.
