Stage: ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’

1478

A musical rendition of Victor Hugo’s classic novel is on its way. Though “Wicked” creator Stephen Schwartz joined Alan Menken of “The Little Mermaid” fame in this production’s creation, don’t expect too many similarities to Disney’s animated “Hunchback” film. The new musical will skew much closer to the Gothic feel of Hugo’s novel. Aug. 23–28. $45–$73. Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H St.; (916) 557-1999; californiamusicaltheatre.com
