On Stage: Notre Dame de Paris the Musical

A sneak peek cast performance video was released for the stage adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame). Playbill reported that the upcoming New York City premiere "has extended its run by a week and will now play Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theater through July 24. Performances of the cult favorite French musical begin July 13, with a gala performance set on July 14, Bastille Day."

The production, written by Richard Cocciante and Luc Plamondon, has played in 23 countries since premiering at the Palais des Congrès in Paris in 1998. The New York premiere, which will be performed in French with English supertitles, is directed by Gilles Maheu and choreographed by Martino Müller. It follows a Covid-related delay of more than a year.

The principal casting includes Angelo Del Vecchio as Quasimodo, Hiba Tawaji as Esmeralda, Daniel Lavoie as Frollo, Gian Marco Schiaretti as Gringoire, Yvan Pedneault as Phoebus, Jay as Clopin, and Emma Lépine as Fleur de Lys.
