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

Norm Lewis, the new Phantom, is a break with tradition,
Jul 10, 2014
reviewer: from Knoxville, Tn.
I just saw on 7/5/14 the Phantom of the Opera for the 11th time at the Majestic Thetrea on Broadway. The new Phantom, Norm Lewis, is an African-American, and this is a major break with tradition for Phantom of the Opera. Needless to say, I am a huge fan of Phantom of the Opera and to me the Phantom is not African-American. He has always been played on Broadway by a white person and this is a major change. After seeing Phantom so many times, to me the Phantom of the Opera is all about tradition. I expect to see certain body types and hair colors and styles the same in the selected characters. To change it this dramatically took away from my enjoyment and changed my expectations of the play. I do not consider myself racist and I do not view this along racist lines. Mr Lewis's performance was very good and his voice worked as the Phantom. The new lady playing Christine Daae was excellent. As much as I love seeing Phantom on Braodway, I will not be back until the lead actor is changed.

Best Day Ever!,
Jul 01, 2014
reviewer: from Boston, Massachusetts
I took a bus from Vermont to Boston to see Phantom this past weekend. I have the CD and DVD and had seen the 25th anniversary production from London several times but it was my first time at a live production of it. To me it was the best show ever. I felt chills during some of the songs in the first act and tears were flowing during "Music of the Night." During the second act I sipped my champagne and decided it was my best day ever.

Second entry,
Jun 30, 2014
reviewer: from Boston, Massachusetts
Reading this negative reviews. People have to understand that is is a brother love 's traveling show and the Broadway spectacular cannot be repeated by a company that moves every two or three weeks. The Majestic Theater has an under structure that is permanent,, 27 years there. These people are on the move constantly and offer you their best. Try to appreciate it.

This play will never die...amazing!,

reviewer: from Boston, Massachusetts
Saw the new production in Boston today. Christine ( Grace Morgan?) was terrific! Wonderful voice and range. With the mechanics and the scenes involved, how do they do this time after time?

Bring back the original,
Jun 22, 2014
reviewer: from Appleton, Wisconsin
So sorry for the negative review, but the tickets are an investment and I do not feel I spent my time wisely. This should have been advertised better about the new version. This is my favorite play and I have been boasting about this to my friend for years. I was so excited when it was playing in Appleton that we made it a girl’s weekend. I was so taken back with a totally different beginning. My friend stated by the second half that she was having a hard time following it. I said, “I can believe it, if I didn’t know the story, I would be lost too.” It felt like a high school music class rendition. I did not have any emotional response other than waiting for SOMETHING to spark that familiar resounding orchestra and voice that used to take my breath away. I don’t blame the actors who work so hard to put together a version of who’s ever vision this was. If this is a pilot, I vote NO! Bring back the passion!
