“Phantom still delivers the goods! Judging by sheer invention, emotional punch and onstage talent, the venerable blockbuster still beats out almost all of the shipper snappers currently on Broadway. Maria Bjornson's flamboyant gothic design and Harold Prince's fantastical staging still have the gleam of finely polished professionalism.”
– The New York Times
“It's gorgeous nonsense to look at, and in director Joel Schumacher's hands, "Phantom" emerges as one of those queer works of art that actually improve somehow as they get tackier and more removed from the original.”
– Washington Post

Was never really a big fan of opera, so didn't think I'd like this musical. Turns out, it was the greatest one I'd seen in a long time
It was an easy process to book tickets but there was a delay in picking them up outside the theatre, which meant the queue was very long by the time we got them. Would prefer an earlier pick up option.
