"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."

reviewer: from Shrewsbury, MA USA
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

magical birthday for daughter,
Feb 15, 2009
reviewer: from connecticut
My husband and I took our 9 year old daughter to Phantom for her birthday. She loves the movie, and wanted to see it on Broadway. We bought orchestra seats in front of the upper mezzanine balcony, so she could see the chandelier drop. It was worth every penny. She had an amazing time. The staff was very pleasant. The bathrooms were clean, theater as well. The theater was beautiful. Only disappointment was we wanted to get a picture of our daughter at the end of the show with the stage in the background, after people had left. Staff insisted we leave the theater. New sound system was great, heard every song clearly. Would love to see again.

12 years can change (for the worst),
Feb 09, 2009
reviewer: from Pennsylvania
I saw Phantom 12 years ago, and I was actually hooked on theater since. Fast forward 2008 (I know I am late on writing this). I was extremely excited for my fiance to to experience Phantom. It hurt, Alot! The acting was mediocre, the singing was horrid. I cannot however blame all the problems on the actors. It was obvious to me that after seeing the movie (oops!) that they had indeed changed it to fit the movie. The phantom went from a cool, collective temper, to a whiney spazmatic kid who gets picked on in school. I would not recommend this shows to anyone who wants to enjoy their first show.


Who knows maybe I will give it another shot in twelve years.

Phantom was Okay,
Feb 09, 2009
reviewer: from Carrollton, GA
When my fiancÚ and I came to New York, we wanted to see a show or two. We saw Wicked first and then saw Phantom the next day. In my opinion, Phantom was not at the level of Wicked. The story line was hard to follow and did not seem very developed. I had a hard time understanding some of the singing from the supporting characters. However, the sining from the main characters was outstanding. I would not see this show again.
