PHANTOM JANUARY 22, 2014 FIRE THOMAS THE USHER!

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!

THIS PHANTOM WAS DIFFERENT THAN PAST SHOWS I'VE SEEN.5/8/14

May 8 2014- Just got home from seeing the Phantom of the opera in Cincinnati , It was a very good show but very different than the past shows I have seen of Broadway's Phantom. Not sure if I liked it as well. It was a good production no doubt. Singing was good but I have been to many performances and they have been phenomenal so I was a bit let down by this show. It was a great show but I have seen better broadway productions of the phantom of the opera so it was a bit disappointing to me maybe because I've seen other phantom shows that were better than tonight's . I did love the piano and fire scene that was different and I liked it I liked the flames on stage too that was cool! I would recommend seeing it though, it was a good show but I have seen better shows and so was a bit let down. The set was good but very different than any other show I've seen. The costumes were good but again better in past productions.

THIS PLAY WILL NEVER DIE...AMAZING!

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?

SECOND ENTRY

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.

WE ALMOST LOST OURSELVES IN IT, BUT NOT ENTIRELY

We thought everything about the show, characters, opera house, amd singing were spot.on except a few minor things wth far reaching consequences. The phantom was trying to hard to make the phantoms part his own - constantly changing or ad libbing, very little stuck to the original stuff, i hated this because the lack of seeing stage hands allowed us to lose ourselves in the show, but him doing this kept jolting us back to reality. Super annoying! Sometimes things felt rushed, and there was not even close to the amount of emotion you should have been.able to expect from such a fantastic show and group of actors, actresses and singers. But other than these things, the show was completely worthwhile and we both loved it

A VIEW FROM THE UK

We stayed in Manhattan for three days during Thanksgiving week (20-23 Nov 2006) and decided to see Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic. There were only 7 seats left when we booked on the day before seeing the show. We had seats in the rear mezzanine, but being steeply tiered, could see the stage very clearly. The performance was very good and we would recommend it to others. The set, costumes and singing were magnificent and despite the music being very familiar, was throughly entertaining. My only concern was the huge crush of people trying to leave at the end of the show - the limited exit routes would not have passed a Health & Safety Audit in the UK!
