The night kicked off with a pre-concert mixer at the Blue Room in Orpheum Theater where we enjoyed delicious bites from the newly opened ALX Gastropub who featured their “Beer Can” chicken, their stick to your bones finger licking good Sticky ribs, and their amazingly sweet peanut butter cookies!

The bites perfectly paired with the complimentary cocktails from Sandeman Porto who poured their delicious Founder’s Reserve Ruby Porto on the rocks with a garnish slice of orange and fresh mint.

The night was celebrated in true Phantom style with a PHANTOM THEMED photobooth from SnapFiesta. Creating the perfect #instamoment! Check out all of the fun photos from SnapFiesta by clicking HERE!

After the pre-mixer, the show began and the production was THRILLING, to say the least. From the fire on the stage to the gunshots as they tried to capture and kill the mysterious Phantom. The new North American tour is unforgettable. The stagecraft, the costumes, and the way the cast members artfully tell the Phantom story is something worth checking out.

After the show, we were lucky to have cast members join us for a private Q/A for Red Curtain Addict guests only! The crew, who have performed in almost every state in the U.S. joined Red Curtain Addict to tell us all about the deepest darkest Phantom ghost stories that happen on and off the stage. However, they wouldn’t reveal how the Phantom disappears which is still a mystery…
