About the Show

A glorious retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic masterpiece, this powerful tale of love, faith and prejudice will leave you utterly spellbound. This rich musical gem not only features the voices of a 30-person choir at every performance, but also places at its center a Deaf actor in the role of Quasimodo. Its lush, beautiful score is unlike anything in musical theater today, featuring songs from the Disney animated feature and new music from legendary composers Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Newsies) and Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell and Pippin). Immerse yourself in the power and glory of rapturous music; melt with the passion of a magnificent story.

"Menken's uncommonly complex, classically-influenced score soars" The Hollywood Reporter

Some shows deal with mature themes and may not be appropriate for all children. For information about whether a particular show is suitable for your child, we strongly encourage you to read the Content Advisories for each production. Children under 4, including babes in arms, will not be admitted.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is adapted from the classic novel by Victor Hugo; the music is by Alan Menken, the lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. It tells the story of Quasimodo, the son of an archdeacon’s brother and a gypsy girl, who grows up in Notre Dame cathedral. He is told by Claude Frollo, his uncle and keeper, that he is deformed and ugly and must stay hidden.

Please note: Content guidelines are based solely on the text of the script. We create our shows just for you, so there is often sensitive content based on the actual direction of the show which we are not aware of until the show opens. Additional content warnings will be posted in the lobby when you attend a performance, or you can call our Guest Services team for more information, once a show has opened, at 206.625.1900.

Adult Language:

A couple of “hells” are heard and one “damnation.” The townspeople call Esmerelda a “gypsy whore.”

 

Sexual References:

Jehan brings his pious brother, Claude, a gypsy girl as a birthday gift, which is refused. Jehan and the girl leave together; their illegitimate son, who has a hump on his back, will later be given to Claude, who has risen to the position of archdeacon.

Esmerelda, the gypsy girl, dances before the crowd: Claude Frollo, Phoebus, and Quasimodo are all entranced by her as she sings: “Before we get old / Come feel the heat / Come taste the desire / Feel them within you.”

Frollo offers to teach Esmerelda and save her soul; she is frightened, as she can see his attraction to her. When she resists, he threatens her with arrest if she enters the cathedral again. Frollo then confesses his lust to God, but blames it on the “gypsy witch.”

We see Phoebus seek Esmerelda out and then see them awaken together in the morning, indicating they have become lovers.

Soldiers searching for Esmerelda, who has been accused of witchcraft, seek her out in a brothel that is known to provide help for gypsies.

 

Violence:

Claude Frollo considers throwing a child (who has been left in his keeping) into the abyss, but changes his mind.

Phoebus, a soldier back from the front, arrives to join the Cathedral Guard; he sings of the deaths he has witnessed: “I’m far away from battle / the clotting blood and rotting wounds / Of dead and dying men.”

When Quasimodo is named king of the day, the crowd begins to throw objects at him, then to beat him; Frollo refuses to stop them right away, but Esmerelda calls it a halt.

Frollo decides that the gypsy girl he is infatuated with “will be mine or she will burn.” When she is captured, he embraces her and she claws at his cheek to get away.

Frollo slaps Quasimodo after Esmerelda visits, accusing him of “impure thoughts.”

Esmerelda puts a knife to Phoebus’s throat when she thinks he will arrest her; he disarms her, but she elbows him and retrieves her knife.

A character is stabbed in the back (but not killed) when soldiers attempt to arrest Esmerelda.

 

Drugs/Alcohol:

Claude Frollo’s pleasure-loving brother Jehan is seen drinking in the cathedral.

 

Mature Themes:

The archdeacon, Frollo, objects to the annual “Feast of the Fools,” the only time “foreigners, gypsies, and criminals” are allowed to wander the city freely without fear of arrest.

Esmerelda prays when she enters the cathedral for the first time: “Please help my people / The poor and down-trod / I thought we were all / The children of God.”
