This is my fourth viewing of the stage play and was by far the worst. The three
previous productions were superior in every way. The actors did not project their
voices adequately and even though I had a decent seat, I missed a great deal of the
dialogue. I knew Mme Giry's relationship with the Phantom because I had read the
book, But I certainly wouldn't have picked it up from what she mumbled on stage.
The singing voices, except for Carlotta, were poor although the costumes were
splendid. The boat ride through the mist was severely truncated by all the scenery
on the stage and the scope and grandeur that should characterize the sets were
lacking. The performance in general was lackluster. This is my favorite musical and I
hate for my last encounter with the music of the night to have been so
disappointing. I wouldn't take anyone to see this show although it is suitable for
tweens and up and for mothers of a certain age,

Have seen Phantom every time it came to Dallas. Saw Crawford in LA. Seen Phantom all over the US.I HATED THIS PRODUCTION!. Has the director never seen Phantom? Do the actors not know the words? We do damnit and we know each inflection on every word. They hit 25% of them correctly. NO EMOTION! For God's sake this is a love story. NO boat on the lake , no rising chandeliers. They were 5 feet apart when Phantom says, "turn your head away..". He wasn't close to her the entire time. If you want to see Vinnie Barbarino play Phantom in high school, this is the play for you. There are so many key things changed or removed from this play, it's not worth going to see if you have ANY memories of a real Phantom performance.
The orchestra was superb. Missed only one trumpet note. The sound quality was worse than a high school musical. Phantom's opening number in his lair is pathetic. If I came home and found my wife in bed with another man, I'd still be less pissed than I am now.

SHOWING ITS AGE
I saw the March 25, 2008 performance, and went in with high expectations. I had seen Phantom in the Majestic in 1990 and was so enchanted with it that I jumped at the chance to see it when I returned to NYC this spring. However, I feel that the show has become very dated, and the music and performers were not nearly as sharp as they could and NEED to be. No, we didn't have the greatest seats, but for what we paid for our seats, I would have hoped to be able to hear the whole show... this was not the case. I really struggled to hear during most of the performance... and I do NOT have hearing problems! In short, I wish that I had seen another show instead of seeing this flat performance of Phantom. Sadly, with so many other choices in town, this should not be at the top of anyone's list anymore.

Love the original but this one makes a mockery of the work. The voices were just noise...could not understand a word.

Although I knew the story, this was the first time I had seen the show. Although the music was good, the cast was not able to bring me emotionally into the
plot. I saw no chemistry between the characters either. Maybe it was the acoustics of the Cadillac Theater, but i was not able to understand much of the
lyrics. The comical relief parts fell short of their potential. The stage and costumes were amazing, but not good enough for me to recommend this show to
anyone. I had hoped this would be a highlight of my daughter's winter break, but it fell very short.

LESS THAN THE ORIGINAL
The new version lacked the splendor of the original. Also, the orchestra drowned out the dialogue and the singing. Enjoyed the night out, but was a little disappointed with this version. Sorry to say it was not
as I remembered the past few times I attended this play in other years..

DISAPPOINTING - STILL ANREW LLOYD WEBBER MUSIC THOUGH
We have seen productions all over the world, this was by far the most disappointing. Stage scenes were lacking in grandeur and actor movements often seemed contrived rather than flow with the scene. Sat in balcony and music overpowered Christine's singing. Could hear Phantom sing, but again not soaring. Restaged Masquerade was well short of earlier stagings on a grand staircase. Scene on roof of Opera House was dismal - if you were not aware of plot, you would not realize it was a rooftop. Worth seeing if you haven't seen before, likely disappointed if you have seen earlier productions.
