The Music of the Night

If you love Broadway but hate to fly, you can drive over to Conroe tonight to catch a bona fide star of the Great White Way, as the Crighton Theatre welcomes David Gaschen, a Texas native son, back to the Lone Star State to perform in The Music of the Night. In the concert-style performance, the singer will hearken back to his days as the title star of The Phantom of the Opera and to his future as a solo recording artist and concert singer. This Phantom certainly knows what he's doing: He was cast in the role in a Swiss production at age 26, and since then he's performed it more than 1,300 times, including a lengthy stint on Broadway. So, gird your emotions for some soulful singing and know that you're in the hands of a pro. 8 p.m. 234 North Main, Conroe. For information, call 936-441-7469 or visit www.crightontheatre.org. $45 to $55.
