"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,
May 18, 2007
reviewer: from Santa Barbara, CA, USA
My wife and I have attended this show four years running at the Majestic Theaterm in NYC. Each time we have attended, we have enjoyed the show, even though we have continuously been moved further and further back during the matinees. We will return this year in July and again, attend the show, perhaps spending the extra money to get nearer to the stage or again taking our chances with the discount ticketing. I have never enjoyed a show as much as Phantom of the Opera. The music, the singing, the scenery, it all seems so real. I've seen every deviation of the Phantom of the Opera, having been a fan of the story before this show was written, and this was written, directed and produced by Masters. I just hope this year when we attend in July we can be up close and real.

May 11, 2007
reviewer: from Stroudsburg, PA USA
I went to see the show this week in New York. When I first got in the theater I knew that it was going to be outstanding. The show was amazing, I have never seen anything better in my life. The lighting, the costumes, and the sets were amazing, and the music there was no words for. I loved the special effects, a lot of them were very thrilling and a lot of them scared me. It was very cool to see this going on in front of you. I Had 4th row seats and an amazing view, but I am sure throughout the whole theater you can see perfect. I think this is a great show to see if you are in New York. I would take children over the age of 8 if they were interested, but children under that age might not be interested at all, and they might get scared. I found a great restaurant right across the street from the theater. If anyone is in New York and wants to see an amazing show see The Phantom of the Opera.

Showing its age!,
Apr 30, 2007
reviewer: from England
My husband and I have seen Phantom three times in London plus the film and this production was certainly not a patch on the London one. We felt that some of the performers were rather lack lustre, the music was a terrible let down - where was the wonderful crescendo at the beginning? The sound was pretty awful and I have heard better singers than the woman who played Christine in our local amateur theatre. Andrew Lloyd Webber would be horrified if he saw this production as it is now. We also thought that some of the theatre staff were extremely rude to the paying customers, shouting at them to sit down in their seats! They should be taught some manners! It just wouldn't happen in London! Perhaps the director should head down to see the production of Curtains where the cast are so enthusiastic and you can hear every word spoken and sung.

Best musical ever.,
Apr 22, 2007
reviewer: from Chicago, IL USA
Phantom of the opera is the best musical to ever hit the broadway stage. From the first word I was captivied by the whole thing. The characters, the plotline, the set, and most importantly, the MUSIC. This is by far Andrew Lloyd Webber's most ingenius creation, and if you are in London, Las Vegas or NYC, you are making the biggest mistake of your life not to see it. I've seen it four times live, and everytime is a whole new expierence in itself. I had great seats both times in NYC [other times were in London and Vegas]. I wouldn't take children under 5 years to see the show. Some parts a little dark, not very but a little. Kids 8 and under, it might just go over their heads. This is the best show on broadway, and everyone should see it at least once in their lifetime! It's absolutely fantastic!!!

Amazing Performance!,
Apr 22, 2007
reviewer: from Massachusetts
I saw the show just yesterday in New York and I'll just put simply that it was a very convincing and exciting performance. I honestly didn't think I was going to enjoy the play, but I ended up loving it.
