Music of the Night
Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” makes a triumphant return to the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, Oct. 10 – 21. Webber’s haunting melodies are still wafting through the Paris Opera House as the tortured Phantom watches each production from the darkened wings. Just don’t book your seat under the stunning crystal chandelier! Tickets start at $40.25 at BrowardCenter.org.

Now you see them, now you don’t. We’re not talking about a fuzzy little bunny being pulled from a hat, either! The cheeky Naked Magicians, the handsome Mike Tyler and Christopher Wayne, are back from Australia and they’re taking it all off again (and performing a few clever tricks, too) tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts, 2855 Coral Springs Dr. Tickets start at $49.82 at TheCenterCS.com.
How often do you get to see a new musical before it hits Broadway? Probably not often, we’re guessing. Head down to Actors Playhouse, 280 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, this weekend to see “Havana Music Hall.” This world premiere musical tells the story of two Cuban musicians and their family’s 50-year saga with a pulsing mambo beat and snappy dance moves. Tickets are $40 at ActorsPlayhouse.org.

Tickets start at $41.87 at TheCenterCS.com.
Tune in to ABC tonight to find out what life is like without Roseanne on “The Connors.” As you’ll recall, the controversial comedian and actress got fired after taking to social media—allegedly under the influence of sleeping pills—and lobbing some racially charged tweets. It’s OK, we didn’t think she was all that funny in the highly publicized reboot anyway. Check local listings for channels and show times.
