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

Phantom of the Opera,
Aug 17, 2009
reviewer: from Leesburg, FL USA
Having seen Phantom on tour in both Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale I was so excited to finally see it on has been a dream of mine. The performance was good--but upon leaving the theatre I was very disappointed--it literally ruined the show. Rude staff basically kicked us out while the orchestra played at the the tune of staff literally yelling "turn off your cameras" repeatedly (this could have been handled with much more class)--I stayed and listened to both touring orchestras--something that I thoroughly enjoy and looked forward to this time--with the cast out & about speaking to patrons. I expected a more professional and refined experience from New York. It really was a disappointment. The touring group in both cases was so much more professional. I am still amazed...saw it on Friday--8/14/09. I am from a small town in Central FL...I don't have super high expectations, but this was a major let down.

Phantom of the Opera Review,
Jun 22, 2009
reviewer: from Toledo, OH USA
My first time in New York City and I topped it off with Phantom of the Opera. It was really well planned out and really well done. Im in theatre myself and I really like the experience up on the stage acting. Before I went to see it on Broadway I watched the movie many times in the Band room at my high school. I would have to say its a lot different on stage than in the movie. I would have to say that Phantom of the Opera on broadway is much better

Everything and more,
Jun 03, 2009
reviewer: from Atlanta, GA
I was a chaperone for a high school choral group and Phantom was the musical my chaperone group went to see. The musical was everything we had expected and more. The group was in awe of such a magical performance. The seating was wonderful. I didn't think there was a bad seat in the house. I would definitely take my mother and anyone else to the musical. There is a great pizza type restaurant across the street that used to be a church of somesort. Phantom was phenomenal!

The musical was AMAZING. The singing was incredible, and the special effects were outstanding. I will never forget such a memorable experience.


The only concern I have is the AIDS fundraiser campaign that occurs right after the show. While the purpose may be good, the phantom becoming a salesman ruins the atmosphere and mood the musical produced. Put signs in the hallway or something, but don't have the phantom suddenly start talking and selling stuff on the stage


Other than that, the performance was astounding. The theater was superb. Everything turned the experience into one that I will never forget.

After 21 years the magic is lost,
Mar 18, 2009
reviewer: from Houston
I Just got back from a wondferul trip to NYC, I actually proposed to my girlfriend of two years there. She had never been to the city before and I couldn't wait to share with her my best memories.One of which is seeing Phantom of the Opera on Broadway.


I have see the show 4 times. The first time was a travelling show in Oklahoma, it was absolutley stunning and brought me to tears.


The second and Third time was in New York Both performances were amazing, strong performers and a great setting.


This most recent showing I wish i would never had seen. We set closer then i have set before and I highly regret it. The performers were the worst I have seen, I felt they had no heart at all.


I usually side with the Phantom, but this phantom did not compell me at all.


The worst part! After their bows the Phantom came out and preached about AIDs awareness, After the crowd had spent 2.5 hrs and tons of money to be a part of this epic. It was shattered in a moment. SHAME SHAME SHAME
