FOR AWHILE last night, hundreds of audience members were left in the dark during an April Fools' Day performance of "Phantom of the Opera."
The power outage was no prank.
The Academy of Music show on the national tour of the iconic musical was seven minutes in and about to start the musical number "Think of Me" when audience members heard a popping sound.
"And all the lights went out," said one attendee, who spoke with the Daily News from the show on her cellphone on condition of anonymity.
And that "legendary chandelier" raved about on the Academy of Music website? It went dark as well.
