we almost lost ourselves in it, but not entirely, Jul 21, 2014
reviewer: Daryl amd Monique from Boston, Massachusetts
We thought everything about the show, characters, opera house, amd singing
were spot.on except a few minor things wth far reaching consequences. The
phantom was trying to hard to make the phantoms part his own - constantly
changing or ad libbing, very little stuck to the original stuff, i hated this because
the lack of seeing stage hands allowed us to lose ourselves in the show, but him
doing this kept jolting us back to reality. Super annoying! Sometimes things felt
rushed, and there was not even close to the amount of emotion you should have
been.able to expect from such a fantastic show and group of actors, actresses and
singers. But other than these things, the show was completely worthwhile and we
both loved it

less than the original, Jul 17, 2014
reviewer: Anonymous from Boston, Massachusetts
The new version lacked the splendor of the original. Also, the orchestra drowned out the dialogue and the singing. Enjoyed the night out, but was a little disappointed with this version. Sorry to say it was not
as I remembered the past few times I attended this play in other years..

Norm Lewis, the new Phantom, is a break with tradition, Jul 10, 2014
reviewer: Bob Johnston from Knoxville, Tn.
I just saw on 7/5/14 the Phantom of the Opera for the 11th time at the Majestic Thetrea on Broadway. The new Phantom, Norm Lewis, is an African-American, and this is a major break with tradition for Phantom of the Opera. Needless to say, I am a huge fan of Phantom of the Opera and to me the Phantom is not African-American. He has always been played on Broadway by a white person and this is a major change. After seeing Phantom so many times, to me the Phantom of the Opera is all about tradition. I expect to see certain body types and hair colors and styles the same in the selected characters. To change it this dramatically took away from my enjoyment and changed my expectations of the play. I do not consider myself racist and I do not view this along racist lines. Mr Lewis's performance was very good and his voice worked as the Phantom. The new lady playing Christine Daae was excellent. As much as I love seeing Phantom on Braodway, I will not be back until the lead actor is changed.

Good Show, but a very rude manager Hugh Barnett, Jul 06, 2014
reviewer: Marianna Simpson from Houston TX


I want to file a complain about Hugh Barnett, a Manager at the Majestic Theater. Interacting with him was a truly ugly experience.

On Friday, June 13 I brought over 100 people to see The Panthom of the Opera at the majestic Theater. The group was The Children's Choir from
Houston, TX and their parents. The choir received a big honor, an invitation to perform at the Carnegie Hall on Monday, June 16, and we arrived a few
days in advance to enjoy New York city. It was a very warm day, everyone was wearing T-shirts. As we settled down in our seats in the orchestra we all
felt a freezing AC wind blowing directly on us. We are from Houston, where the weather is very hot and we are used to the air conditioning in cars, homes
and public places, but on that day at the Majestic Theater the temperature was so cold and I watched the kids scrunching, wrapping their arms around
shoulders and shivering.

At the intermission I went to look for administration and met Hugh Barnett.

Best Day Ever!, Jul 01, 2014
reviewer: Anonymous from Boston, Massachusetts
I took a bus from Vermont to Boston to see Phantom this past weekend. I have the CD and DVD and had seen the 25th anniversary production from London several times but it was my first time at a live production of it. To me it was the best show ever. I felt chills during some of the songs in the first act and tears were flowing during "Music of the Night." During the second act I sipped my champagne and decided it was my best day ever.
