Mr. Lewis makes a fine meal of the role. His Phantom is imposing in his willfulness, as his lustrous voice comes booming down from the heavens, and touching in his energetic but unrequited love for Christine.

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

We couldn't hear or understand most of the show!,
May 30, 2008
reviewer: from NY/NJ area
I was very disappointed with our recent visit to POTO at the Majestic. We had pretty good seats (and paid a lot of money for them), Front Mezz Center, Row E, and we could barely make out most of the (singing) dialogue. The only performer who we could hear and understand clearly was the Phantom character, so we know it wasn't the aucoustics. So at least half the scenes had no meaning for us and we had no idea what was going on....I can't believe more people aren't experiencing this.

Mystery, Tragedy, Comedy!,
May 09, 2008
reviewer: from Brooklyn, New York
What a beautiful musical! Three of us saw Phantom on March 8th, 2008. We thoroughly enjoyed it. I have not seen others play The Phantom, but have heard some of their recordings. I must say that Howard McGillin's voice is the finest I've heard sing the part. His acting brought out all of the qualities needed to play a reclusive, slightly demented, yet endearing man like The Phantom. I was almost brought to tears by his rendition of Music of the Night. I am always thrilled by a musical which has beautiful costuming, and clever set changes. I was not disappointed this time. My only complaint would be that I need to see it a few more times to catch all that happens on the stage! Andrew Lloyd Webber - you rock!

The best musical ever to grace broadway!,
May 03, 2008
reviewer: from Detroit ,MI
The title says it all. Thius musical is and always will be my favorite by far! It has everything I look for, great music dancing and plot. I love it because it isnt your average musical where everyone is happy and busrts into song. It it has a darker, edgier twist to it, and is amazing!!!! I absolutely love it and I always always ALWAYS will!

Impressed but frozen,
Apr 24, 2008
reviewer: from Lebanon, PA
The show was fantastic! The long run has in no way dulled the intensity of the performance. McGillin is probably the finest voice I have ever heard. The only complaint was that I froze throughout the entire performance. If you are seated in row R of the orchestra section, dress for a winter sleighride and you will thoroughly enjoy the performance.

Showing its age,
Apr 10, 2008
reviewer: from Anytown, AT 55555
I saw the March 25, 2008 performance, and went in with high expectations. I had seen Phantom in the Majestic in 1990 and was so enchanted with it that I jumped at the chance to see it when I returned to NYC this spring. However, I feel that the show has become very dated, and the music and performers were not nearly as sharp as they could and NEED to be. No, we didn't have the greatest seats, but for what we paid for our seats, I would have hoped to be able to hear the whole show... this was not the case. I really struggled to hear during most of the performance... and I do NOT have hearing problems! In short, I wish that I had seen another show instead of seeing this flat performance of Phantom. Sadly, with so many other choices in town, this should not be at the top of anyone's list anymore.
