About the show: As the bells of Notre Dame's cathedral sound in 15th-Century Paris, Quasimodo--a captive bell-ringer--escapes his captor to join the Feast of Fools, and is rejected by every reveler except one. A lushly-scored retelling of Victor Hugo's epic story of love and acceptance, by the creators of WICKED and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.
