I loved this production, and the day i went it was the understudy that played the phantom and I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job. I've never seen sets so grand or large or plentiful. The costumes were magnificent and the songs of course were incredible. As expensive as the tickets were, if this returns to Toronto in a few years, i will absolutely go back. I saw it over a month ago and still think of it and how moving and incredible a production it was. I cannot recommend it enough. I only ever go to the theater alone, so it's usually easy to get one good single seat, was very lucky to get the seat I had in the center of the fourth row, you cannot really get better than that. When that chandelier "broke" and the shards of flexible plastic "glass" was shot out, some landed on my sleeve and I jumped, it was just incredible from start to finish.

I, my sister and nieces found the play fantastic. The music, singing, acting and sets were wonderful. Although we were on the 3rd tier front and center we had a great view with no obstruction and did actually hear the performance. The only thing I would suggest is, if you are afraid of heights or have vertigo, do not sit on the very first row of any tier (in the Salt Lake Eccles Theater). The railing is very low and only comes to your knees. It was a bit scary for some members of my family while making their way to their seats. Other than that, I say to each their own, the play was excellent!

This was my first time seeing Phantom of the Opera. It is a spectacular production. The beautifully stark revolving set reflects the alienated isolation of the phantom whose love of the sparkling opera contrasts so powerfully with his dark inner pain. The set decorating is exquisite, the music is thundering and delicate, and the singing sparkles as it resonates with heartfelt depths of emotion,The cast engrosses us in a world whose impact on us doesn't stop when the curtain goes down. Not to be missed as part of a night out you won't soon forget. Thanks to everyone involved in this grand and touching theater experience.

We saw Phantom Of The Opera at The (Fabulous) Fox Theater on May 9, 2018. I am sure everyone knows the story, so I won't waste time. But, I can tell you that this cast is electric, the scenery more than appropriate and the singing was nothing shout of outstanding! I was surprised that the place was filled close to capacity for a Wednesday evening, but everyone (as far as I could tell) had a great time. I encourage any of my fellow Saint Louis neighbors to go visit The Fox and get a peek at a real classic. You will not be sorry, that I can guarantee.

I took my 87 year old mother to see this show (my second time, her first time) and we were both thrilled! A wonderful production. My mother was awe-struck and we both promised to see it again when it comes back in 2016.

I have seen the Phantom of the Opera twice before at our beautiful Fox Theater. Both times were superb. But, last night's performance (advertised as bigger and better) blew me away! The voices were phenomenal! Every single character had exceptional voices! The scenery and costumes were breathtaking! And the orchestra and organist hit every note perfectly! I was so moved when I left that I couldn't even talk. Even today the gorgeous songs keep going through my head. This performance raised the bar extremely high. Bravo to the entire ensemble!
