‘Phantom’ to haunt Orange County

“Phantom of the Opera” may be closing its four-year run in Los Angeles Sunday , but it will be only a temporary absence.

The touring “Phantom” will return to the Southland next July as part of a five-show season presented at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

The touring “Phantom,” reuniting the original London creative team headed by director Harold Prince, will open at the Center on July 22, 1994, as the last show of the season.

The season will get under way Dec. 21 with the touring production of the Frank Loesser/Jo Swerling/Abe Burrows tuner “Guys and Dolls,” directed by Jerry Zaks. It will run through Jan. 2.

Cathy Rigby will then star in a touring revival of “Annie Get Your Gun,” directed by Susan Schulman, choreographed by Michael Lichtefeld and designed by Heidi Landesman and Joel Reynolds. It runs Feb. 8-13.

The new musical version of “The Who’s Tommy,” which was developed at the La Jolla Playhouse and went on to win five Tony awards on Broadway last year, will run at the Center May 10-15.

“The Great Radio City Music Hall Spectacular,” a 60th-anniversary revue starring the Rockettes and Susan Anton, will open June 14 at the Center.
