The plot synopsis, according to Hennepin Theatre Trust, is as follows. It's 1907, a decade after the Phantom's disappearance from the Paris Opera House. He now lives in New York City, taking in the freak shows of Coney Island. 

Still very much involved in music and his obsession for Christine, the Phantom anonymously lures the struggling family (Christine, hubby Raoul and young son Gustave) from Paris to New York with promises of financial rewards.
