"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 January 22, 2014 FIRE THOMAS THE USHER!,
Jan 27, 2014
reviewer: from New York, New York
Theatre was beautiful, front door staff was friendly. Needed Handicap access but none, this was a problem.

 

Thomas, one of the ushers was RUDE! He spoke to everyone like they were a child and as he put it "getting on his last nerve". He yelled as patrons reached to pick up a Playbill, "Put those back, PUT THOSE BACK!" " This is NOT a buffet you do not help yourself.". He was impatient with everyone. I suggest if he doesn't like working with the public he chose another profession! Our seats were on row two of the Mezzanine and right by the stairs, so we had no choice but to hear him rant on and on! Visiting from TX I will say most other New Yorkers were friendly an d hospitable but Thomas left a sour note in our head!

 

Sorry Thomas but your need to be fired!

Phenomanial Phantom,
Jan 15, 2014
reviewer: from Kenosha, WI
I brought my daughter for her birthday and two friends that had never seen a play. It was wonderful and gave yougoose bumps. The costumes, music, and special effects were spectacular! I would highlyrecommend this play. Of course, my favorite was "The Music of the Night" How thePhantom disappears is magical.

Not as enjoyable as previous version,
Jan 15, 2014
reviewer: from Chicago, Illinois
Sound let it down for me, vocals were drowned out by the orchestra and when you could hear Them they were too harsh. New set was interesting and clever .If you saw the last production in Chicago you will be disappointed.

UnderWhelming,
Jan 13, 2014
reviewer: from Chicago, Illinois
Matinee performance, 1/11/2014 sitting in Row F Seat 18 it’s rightmost near front of the theatre, Aisle 1. Good seating; most of the action takes place at stage right. Yet, I was unable to see movement at stage right Theatre Populaire. I couldn’t see Raul I heard him. The Ford Cadillac stage is too small to accommodate this play. Scaled down scenes, less numbers of actors on stage accommodating small limited space. No spectacle, grandeur of stage, props, lighting, etc. Stage blocking cast two characters directly in my line of sight to middle stage so I didn’t see the Phantom’s entrance to or his costume at the Masquerade ball binoculars did not help… Changes made to the story didn’t enhance or expand on it they only detracted from it & the atmosphere. Maybe my problem is I am spoiled by viewing the Royal Albert Hall’s version of the play; same director, however RAH’S version is well above par in every aspect to the current version. The acting could have been better; many times, it lacked fire, intensity, joviality, horror/comedy as displayed in other versions. Phantom of the Opera 2013/14 is not a play for anyone who has seen it at another time, place, and/or in another venue.
