"With the distance of more than a decade - and a couple hundred new musicals - since my last visit, I found myself with a new appreciation for this beloved show's gothic theatricality."

UnderWhelming,
Jan 13, 2014
reviewer: from Chicago, Illinois
Matinee performance, 1/11/2014 sitting in Row F Seat 18 it’s rightmost near front of the theatre, Aisle 1. Good seating; most of the action takes place at stage right. Yet, I was unable to see movement at stage right Theatre Populaire. I couldn’t see Raul I heard him. The Ford Cadillac stage is too small to accommodate this play. Scaled down scenes, less numbers of actors on stage accommodating small limited space. No spectacle, grandeur of stage, props, lighting, etc. Stage blocking cast two characters directly in my line of sight to middle stage so I didn’t see the Phantom’s entrance to or his costume at the Masquerade ball binoculars did not help… Changes made to the story didn’t enhance or expand on it they only detracted from it & the atmosphere. Maybe my problem is I am spoiled by viewing the Royal Albert Hall’s version of the play; same director, however RAH’S version is well above par in every aspect to the current version. The acting could have been better; many times, it lacked fire, intensity, joviality, horror/comedy as displayed in other versions. Phantom of the Opera 2013/14 is not a play for anyone who has seen it at another time, place, and/or in another venue.

Dissapointing,
Jan 10, 2014
reviewer: from Chicago, Illinois
Although I knew the story, this was the first time I had seen the show. Although the music was good, the cast was not able to bring me emotionally into the plot. I saw no chemistry between the characters either. Maybe it was the acoustics of the Cadillac Theater, but i was not able to understand much of the lyrics. The comical relief parts fell short of their potential. The stage and costumes were amazing, but not good enough for me to recommend this show to anyone. I had hoped this would be a highlight of my daughter's winter break, but it fell very short.

The NEW changes are disappointing ,
Dec 27, 2013
reviewer: from Minneapolis, Minnesota
If you've never seen the original Phantom of the Opera, you'll likely enjoy the experience not knowing what you're really missing. Those however that have attended previously will be disappointed with the changes, especially the Masqureade scene. It went from an amazing spectacle to nothing noteworthy . Performers & orchestra did fantastic. I enjoyed Mark Campbell as Phantom. Some of the changes though seem to have caused a lack of passion/connection between the characters. I usually attend a few times when Phantom is in town, once will be enough with the "new" version.

Too perfect.,
Dec 16, 2013
reviewer: from Minneapolis, Minnesota
It was absolutely fantastic! I spent most of the play fangirling in my seat. :)(Which is really hard for me to say... My expectations are so high, and this show met them perfectly!) I loved it. Would see it again in a heart-beat, wish I could, because I won't stop raving about this for at least another week.
