There's definitely a party atmosphere in the West End this month.

Not only are there a string of high-profile openings — including A Streetcar Named Desire and Elaine Stritch at Liberty but, a day after Les Miserables celebrated its seventeenth birthday, today (Oct. 9), The Phantom of the Opera turns sweet sixteen.
