The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a brand-new musical production and an epic and emotionally charged retelling of the famous Victor Hugo love story of the beautiful gypsy girl Esmeralda, and the scorned bell-ringer Quasimodo. While it is based on the animated Disney film including many of the same songs, the plot and themes follow more closely to the original, and significantly darker, novel. This is at The Victoria Theatre, Friday & Saturday.
