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

They serve snacks! Great, right?,
Nov 20, 2012
reviewer: from New York, New York
Needless to say that the musical was incredible, even the second time, but what I really wanted to say is why is it necessary to sell snacks to the audience? And dear Audience, even if you are offered to buy one, doesn't mean you are obligated to do so. It was very said to see something so wonderful turn into a football stadium. Imagine, someone's once in a lifetime experience was accompanied by crackling noises of Twizzlers and M&M's wrappers... During the last part of the show I had tears standing in my eyes, while some gentlemen next to me was munching on chips, slowly reaching into the bag, apparently trying to make less noise but only prolonged it...

Dont miss this show! Went on 6-12-12,

Great show! We sat in H2,4,6,8. Thoughts:premium seats are worth the $$$. If u sit on the floor level n row M or higher, you probably wont c the phantom up on the roof. If you have heart issues, dont sit dead center in front of the orchestra, because the chandelier will come close to your head as it crashes to the stage (very cool effect!) If you are on the floor, get seats in the center. Outside seats do have obstructed views. Also the left side of the stage seems to have more "action" then the right side. Get seats in center left. Temperature in theater was great, nice and cool! Having read prior reviews I agree with others: the staff was rude at times. There is outside noise from the street to the east exit doors behind row H. Bathroom lines are long and many people miss the start of the 2nd half (they do let you back in) some noise from candy wrappers but most of the audience was quiet at the important times. I am 6'2 & I am glad I had the aisle seat! Great show! Dont miss it!

Loved,loved,loved this production. This was definitely the highlight of my NY trip and the best musical I have ever seen. Music was exquisite, sets amazing, performances outstanding.I fell in love with the movie and knew I had to see it in the theatre and seeing it on Broadway was just awesome. Second row seats were icing on the cake. DO NOT MISS THIS ONE. I hope I get to see it again...and again...and again.

Highlight of my NYC trip,
Jun 09, 2012
reviewer: from Virginia
WOW! WOW! WOW!! A recent girls' weekend to NYC and this was on our schedule for the first night. First I was pleasantly surprised by the intimacy of the Majestic Theatre. We were in Row H and our view was incredible. The way the acoustics sounded in there was amazing. As far as the performers......I was astounded!! The vocals of Sara Jean Ford (the character of Christine) gave me chills at times - no joke, the hairs on my arms stood on end when she carried the notes when the "Phantom" was instructing her to "sing" for him. And towards the end when Hugh Panaro (The Phantom) cried out that he loved her, I was in tears! They all did such an incredible job that I could have gone every night we were there. It's funny because I am watching The Phantom of the Opera on tv as I type this (with Gerald Butler) and there is no comparison obviously. The performance at the Majestic blows this Hollywood movie version out of the water. If you have a chance to go, I highly recommend it!
