Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic, bombastic musical goes on. Directed by Harold Prince, Phantom is lavish and engaging enough to draw tourists more than two decades into its run. Although the score often strikes a cheesy 1980s synth-pop note, the spectacle and romance remain more or less intact. Norm Lewis now plays the Phantom.—David Cote
