New York - The streets of Paris are not safe after young Pierre Frollo’s love for a fiery Muslim refugee sparks a series of cataclysmic events. Featuring a chanson- and Arab-influenced score, this gripping musical re-sets Victor Hugo’s Notre Dame De Paris amongst the disenfranchised youth and xenophobia of France 1958, and the Algerian War for Independence.

Please be advised that this show contains mature themes and content which may not be suitable for children.
