Two of the biggest blockbusters in musical theatre history are coming again to Ireland in 2020 and are set to be sell-out runs. Both will be staged at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin.

While Les Misérables would get my vote as the better of the two, by a short-head using horseracing parlance, it is The Phantom of the Opera that will have the longer run. It can be seen for almost five weeks, whereas Les Mis, as it is most popularly known, will be in the capital city for just short of three weeks.
