PHANTOM IN OMAHA

This was our 6 th time seeing The a Phantom. I purchased 4 th row center and could not even see their faces, the whole play was dark and shortened. Why have it so dark you could not see them. The reason I purchased these tickets WAS to see their faces. The performance by the phantom was terrible. He had problems holding notes and was the worst of all the phantoms. He just didn’t seem to be able to pull it off. The height difference was almost a joke as he had to bend over for some scenes.I was very disappointed with the changes in the scenery. Just did not seem to be a top notch program. If these are the same actors in a performance near me., being with in 400 miles. I won’t waste the gas or hotel room again. Poor showing!

WE COULDN'T HEAR OR UNDERSTAND MOST OF THE SHOW!

I was very disappointed with our recent visit to POTO at the Majestic. We had pretty good seats (and paid a lot of money for them), Front Mezz Center, Row E, and we could barely make out most of the (singing) dialogue. The only performer who we could hear and understand clearly was the Phantom character, so we know it wasn't the aucoustics. So at least half the scenes had no meaning for us and we had no idea what was going on....I can't believe more people aren't experiencing this.

A DISGRACEFUL INTERPRETATION OF THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

This show was absolutely dreadful. From the staging to the choreography to the acting to the singing. The Phantom of the Opera has been one of my favorite productions since I was a child. This past experience left a bad taste in my mouth. If I hadn't known every line of the show, I would not know what the actors were saying half the time. The phantom himself was quite a disappointment. He did not have the voice to play that role. And as for the staging...the chandellier is supposed to be on the stage at the start of the show. The dramatics of that is what really starts the show. Also, the staircase was missing in "masquerade". It felt as though the production was trying to be "budget friendly" and cut out some things that really provide an impact on the audience. It was just all around awful and I would definitely not recommend seeing it. If I could get my money back I would.

COULD NOT HEAR THE WORDS IN THE SONGS

Either the acoustics were not set up properly, or the actors mumbled while singing. At first, I thought that since I'm middle aged, maybe my hearing is going. But then during intermission I heard many of the other patrons saying that they also had difficulty understanding (not hearing) the words. The costumes and the set were beautiful, the theme great, but we missed most of the show because we didn't know what the actors were singing for much of the performance. Shows are so costly and I attend a performance once every 1-2 years as a treat. I feel like I wasted my time and money here.

GREAT PERFORMANCES MUTED BY DISAPPOINTING SOUND SYSTEM

Wonderful set and performances, but the lyrics were often indisguishable from the powerful music. The audio engineer should increase the volume of the center channel so the voices could prevail.

NOT UP TO PAR

Have seen the Phantom every year it comes to Pittsburgh. I was so excited to see this years Phantom for the fact it was the 25th anniversary so I was expecting spectacular, well it was disappointing. The props not up to par, the Mascaraed scene and costumes not as fun or colorful like the past , Phantom okay, Christine's voice amazing. Orchestra (music) is always fantastic. The past years you could feel the music in your chest and you would be mesmerized by scenes and actors, you would be pulled in(feeling the emotions of the actors) and feel like you were up on that stage with them. This year we felt like the whole production was so rushed thru and seemed like it was missing a lot of details, especially emotion (did not have a chance to connect to their emotions). We felt like the ending came abruptly and we were left with an emptiness. Past years I have felt so bad for the Phantom, this year I honestly was irritated and bored. Hopefully next production will be as good as past.

3RD TIME SEEING PHANTOM!

I’ve seen a few live Phantom productions, it’s my favorite musical and I finally took my mother to enjoy it as well. We were very pleased with this one! Eva Tavers was a PERFECT Christine and Jordan Craig was similarly impressive as Raoul. The Phantom, Quentin Lee, played a very nuanced and subtle Phantom and really embodied the emotional depth of the character, particularly in the final scenes. What really made this show special, in my opinion, and stood out was the talent of the dancers! In particular, the male members of the ensemble/ballet! The male African-American dancer (I apologize for my assumption of his nationality: this is just the best way I can describe him.) is the one to watch: his forms are just absolutely PERFECT, so emotive and beautiful to watch! Every line/body movement he makes is just so intentional and beautiful (I wanted to yell out “you the bomb” during curtain call but didn’t want to be rude). Everyone will enjoy this show; I highly recommend it!
