DISAPPOINTED IN THIS VERSION OF PHANTOM.

While it was a good show, it was Not a phenomenal show. The singing was good but I have heard better. I have seen better Productions of Broadway's Phantom of the Opera , this show was very different from past shows I have seen I did not think it was as well done and I was let down and disappointed. It felt like they did not want to put much money into this show. The set was revolving and though interesting didn't feel like a broadway set. The singing was good but not mind blowing I have seen better. I didn't feel the passion from the actors in the lead roles. Costumes were not as good as in past either. Masquerade was a disappointment as well. No grand stair case or splendid costumes. No cymbals cashing not well enough singing. I guess if this was your first time seeing it you would have loved it but I have seen it many times before and this performance was a let down because the past Phantoms I have seen were just so phenomenal and amazing.

DISAPPOINTING

Very disappointed. Could not see because everything was so dark, no definition of stage--everything was gray or black. Could not understand words because is was too loud. It was a gift to myself and my sisters from my husband, how do I tell him it wasn't the greatest after he spent so much money. On the other hand liked the costume and scenery changes. Some almost seemed magical.

BEAUTIFUL!

Amazing performance by everyone. The opera house is beautiful and the seats were great. The newer version of phantom is definitely not what you're used too if you've seen the original. Music and story line is the same but seems they took the music and made different meanings throughout the story. It was more intimate and passionate between the main characters. I will say the orchestra pit was absolutely breath taking! I was so moved and felt goosebumps more than once. The music made the play and would see it again in a heartbeat! Only downside is why they would serve popcorn and a upscale venue. People made a mess!

NOT THE BEST I HAVE SEEN

Was excited to see it again, bought tickets in the Loge, Excellent seats, beautiful venue. then it started... very hard to understand the speaking parts and some of the songs, Christine got better as the show went on, Raoul should stay at high school musicals, he was very unemotional and off key, Phantom was excellent. Carlotta, Piangi, Firman and Andre were just as disappointing as the rest. I hope it was just opening night jitters

NOT WORTH THE MONEY!

As soon as it started I thought where is the volume? Very low, hard to follow. It was my husband's first time seeing it, and he has some hearing loss, so he didn't hear much at all. Understudy Kaitlyn Davis saved this show! She had a wonderful voice! Not impressed with Phantom, Mr. Lee. We were close enough to view all the spitting he was doing while singing! Not very romantic. When Christine kissed him, I was actually grossed out! It`s not the Phantom of the 90's. Not worth the huge ticket price at all!

UNDERWHELMING

Wonderful orchestra and elaborate sets and costumes but the singers, both individually and as an ensemble, seemed flat and couldn't sustain their notes (in my opinion). The significant and potent high notes that everyone anticipates and waits for in this play just fell flat and were very underwhelming to say the least. Unfortunately, this was the worst production of Phantom I've seen.
