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.
