If you have art or design chops and are a fan of The Phantom of the Opera, oh boy, are you in luck. The longest running show in Broadway history (11,023 performances as of yesterday’s matinee) invites you to download a PDF of the Phantom’s iconic mask, then jazz it up and submit to win. Judges will select 26 illustrated masks, which will be displayed in a pop-up gallery on the ground floor of the Paramount Hotel (235 W 46th Street). The 26 artists will also get tickets to see The Book of Mormon. Ha ha! We’re only kidding. You have to see The Phantom of the Opera again (currently starring Norm Lewis, above).
