Fans of musicals are in for a treat this March courtesy of the Roma Musical Theater, which is running a string of shows featuring the greatest hits from musicals staged at the venue over the past decade. The shows, entitled Najlepsze z Romy (The Best of Roma), will bring back fond memories of the world of Gershwin from Crazy for You, which Roma staged in 1999, of Madame Butterfly from Miss Saigon (2000), and the adolescent excitement and angst Grease, the coming-of-age rock'n'roll extravaganza that Roma staged in 2002.

Audiences will also be able to revisit the magic of the legendary Cats (2004), with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and be transported once again to Transylvania in The Dance of the Vampires, which Roman Polanski, no less, directed at the Roma in 2005.

The special shows will also include songs from Roma's own productions, Polish family musicals Peter Pan (2000) and Mr. Kleks's Academy (2007), with animated sequences by Oscar nominee Tomek Bagiński.

The series will close with a preview of excerpts from the famous musical Les Miserables, the magnum opus of Claude-Michel Schönberg, which the Roma Musical Theater will premiere in September. In March the Roma is also staging the final performances of The Phantom of the Opera musical which Feb. 13 was shown for the 500th time in Warsaw.
