When you play the same iconic role on Broadway for six years straight, the title tends to stick with you. Though 16 years have passed since Franc D’Ambrosio took his final bow as the title character in “The Phantom of the Opera” in San Francisco, he still pays homage to that work in his solo show.

In “Hollywood: Songs of the Silver Screen,” D’Ambrosio performs an autobiographical, two-act show of selections from “Les Miserables,” Fred Astaire and of course, “Phantom.” These songs are seen and performed through the eyes of a young Italian boy in New York City as he watches music change his life, D’Ambrosio said.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
