“Just show up
Just have a presence
And just make a loud noise
because we all want to be heard”
“Phantom of the Opera” featuring Norm Lewis begins on Monday, May 12, at the Majestic Theater. “Phantom of the Opera” is the longest running show in Broadway history. It’s a turn-of-the-century tale of a deformed composer haunting the Paris Opera House, where he lures in a young singer. Thirteen men have played the role of Phantom on Broadway, but the one making headlines is Norm Lewis. Norm Lewis plays Sen. Edison Davis on ABC’s “Scandal,” but the role as Phantom is his biggest yet.

SYMPOSIUM “Greek Restaurant”
This hidden gem tucked away on W. 113th St. has been in business since 1969. If you like good Greek cuisine, this is the place for you. Whatever your cravings are from the traditional Moussaka to the classic Lamb dishes to an assorted selection of Vegetarian delights, you are sure to have a delicious dining experience at this friendly, family owned establishment.
If you are looking for a light dinner or late afternoon snack, I recommend their classic Greek Salad with a glass of wine and Pita bread on the side. Healthy and delicious. The Symposium Mixed Appetizer Plate is a great sampler dish for those of you who are not as familiar with Mediterranean cuisine.
If you haven’t already stop in see why this place continues to be successful. There is a reason that this restaurant has been in business for over 40 years. Just make sure you don’t leave without trying the Baklava or Rice Pudding for desert.
