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!

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
I have seen Phantom of the Opera before and loved it. I was disappointed in this one. The guy that played Raoul did not have the voice for the part. I would like to hope he was sick! His name is Ryan Silverman. I would try to go again if he was not in the show. The rest of the show was fantastic and Hugh Panaro as the Phantom.... Wow what a voice! He is worth going to hear!
Oh and a great restaurant is The Brazil Grill. Their sizzling steak is a must!

GREAT PRODUCTION VALUES. GOOD PERFORMANCE. NO CHEMISTRY.
The updated staging and effects are a welcome and refreshing addition to this
Eva Tavares and Quentin Oliver Lee put up great vocal performances. They are
certainly talented. However, what was lacking was the chemistry that is so
essential to the relationship between Christine and Phantom.
What should be portrayed by Christine as being torn by a mix of fear, fascination,
pity and love for Phantom falls flat and comes across as simply disgust for him. In
return, Phantom's only link to sanity and humanity should be anchored by
Christine and that crucial part of him just doesn't come across well. This very
complex and essential part of the story is just not well-interpreted and executed by
Eva and Quentin.
In previous viewings of Phantom I've found myself on the edge of my seat,
completely engrossed in watching this enthralling dynamic play out between
Christine and Phantom. In this rendition I found myself disappointed when I
should have been completely captivated.

PHANTOM WAS OKAY
When my fiancÚ and I came to New York, we wanted to see a show or two. We saw Wicked first and then saw Phantom the next day. In my opinion, Phantom was not at the level of Wicked. The story line was hard to follow and did not seem very developed. I had a hard time understanding some of the singing from the supporting characters. However, the sining from the main characters was outstanding. I would not see this show again.

HIT & MISS
I've only seen one other production of this show, many years ago, & all I recall was that it was a bit of an anti-climax. I admit to having been spoiled by the original cast recording, and Michael Crawford 's
Phantom is a hard act to follow. This was a decent enough production, but there were some changes that I didn't care for. The "Masquerade" sequence had no grand staircase, no exotic masqueraders and
the Phantom's "Red Death" was not represented in the traditional way. Cooper Grodin's Phantom left me somewhat cold. He was trying too hard to be dark & menacing, & was lacking as a "sympathetic"
Phantom, which is essential to the character. Some of his gestures were reminiscent of John Barrymore, amusingly enough. The singing from most of the principals sounded too "American"...Too many
harsh "R's" and such. There were subtle-but-noticeable changes in libretto & stage direction which were disappointing to anyone who knows the show well. Overall, very good, but not great.

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

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.
