“We start as early as Charles
Pierre Baudelaire (1821-1867)who penned verses of exotic
locations, intoxication anddecadence,” says co-found-ing artistic director Suzanne
DuPlantis. “We travel through
the great expositions of Paris
in the latter part of the 19thcentury, where exhibitionsof music, art and (even
in- habitants
) from Africa, Asia, the Americawere on display and fueled the imaginationof more than a generation of artists.”A highly distinguished cast of establishedand promising artists brings additional in-terest to audiences.

he longest-running show in the history of Broadwaywill make its way to Saint Joseph’s University nextmonth, when the Cap & Bells Dramatic Arts Society
closes its 83rd season with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s master-
piece
The Phantom of the Opera.
The show, which is the
first university-level performance in the Philadelphia region,
opens Thursday,
April 7
at 8 p.m. and runs
through Sunday,
April 17.
Written by Webber and Charles Hart, the musical opened
on Broadway in 1988 and won six Tony Awards that year,
including Best Musical. It has since been seen by more than
100 million people worldwide in productions in 149 cities.Renee Dobson, M.F.A., the show’s director and an associ-ate
professor of fine and performing arts, acknowledged the
test of putting on a show as well-known as
Phantom.
“It’s
iconic,” she said. “This cast has never lived in a world with-
out it on Broadway, and it’s a difficult enough show to per-form without so many people knowing it. It has been apleasure watching them rise to the challenge.”
To help scale the grandiose production to a more manage-
able size for Bluett Theater, Dobson enlisted the help of
Saint Joseph’s UniversitySings the Music of the Night
John C. Bogle to Discuss His New Book
