I took my 87 year old mother to see this show (my second time, her first time) and we were both thrilled! A wonderful production. My mother was awe-struck and we both promised to see it again when it comes back in 2016.

NORM LEWIS, THE NEW PHANTOM, IS A BREAK WITH TRADITION
I just saw on 7/5/14 the Phantom of the Opera for the 11th time at the Majestic Thetrea on Broadway. The new Phantom, Norm Lewis, is an African-American, and this is a major break with tradition for Phantom of the Opera. Needless to say, I am a huge fan of Phantom of the Opera and to me the Phantom is not African-American. He has always been played on Broadway by a white person and this is a major change. After seeing Phantom so many times, to me the Phantom of the Opera is all about tradition. I expect to see certain body types and hair colors and styles the same in the selected characters. To change it this dramatically took away from my enjoyment and changed my expectations of the play. I do not consider myself racist and I do not view this along racist lines. Mr Lewis's performance was very good and his voice worked as the Phantom. The new lady playing Christine Daae was excellent. As much as I love seeing Phantom on Braodway, I will not be back until the lead actor is changed.

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
Andrew Lloyd Webber is a pure genious! Phantom of the opera is an amazing breathtaking and thrilling show for the whole family. I would highly recomend this as a must see if you are living or visiting in New York. And just to add on to this amazing dream there are wonderfull resturaunts, Gift shops, And hotels near by the theatre and it is in the heart of times Square. I myself have seen it over 100 times and it has not disappointed me yet and i am only 13. If you like the whole concept of beauty and the beast you willl love this romantic broadway miracle it is Phanominal! 500 gold stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SHOW AND THEATRE WERE INCREDIBLE
My wife and I attended Phantom for my 1st ever show and I have to say both the show and the theatre/its staff were amazing. We missed the 2pm showing because of a snarl at the Lincoln Tunnel (2 hours to go 7 miles)and they graciously allowed us to attend the 8pm show and our seats were actually better.

We saw Phantom on April 18th, and it was one of the most memorable shows I've ever seen. Everything was expertly executed. The storyline was wonderful and the actors brought it to life. There was not one thing about the performance that was lacking in any way. the only downfall of the entire evening was when the actors spent so long asking for donations during the curtain call. I felt this was very inappropriate. Other than that, everything was great!

We went to New York for the first time as a special birthday celebration from England. It was the first time my husband has seen a musical and we were both blow away by Phantom. The special effects were amazing, the boat, the lights.The singing, acting of the cast and Howard McGill was excellent as were the other members of the show.When Howard Mc Gill spoke at the end of the show to do some fund raising he was so friendly. The whole cast made the experience special especially as the show has been running for a long time. We think they were wonderful had a brilliant time and it was well worth the trip to the theatre despite the rain.Fantastic story and songs.The music lived on in our memory for days after. Wonderful memory of New York.We will go back to Broadway one day.I have been to the West End but this was much better!! Great seats.Well done, you guys are doing a fantasic job.Thank you!!!

The Phantom of the Opera is the best show in broadway. 18 years in broadway history is a long time and the show is still popular. Howard Mcgillin, brad little, John Owen Jones, and Michael Crawford are the greatest. This show is a great start to enjoy the musical world. Its something you will never forget. There is nothing like it. Trust me you will fall in love with the show and music.
