Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. "Phantom of the Opera" is the longest running musical in Broadway history and features a score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and is directed by Hal Prince.

New York Post

“Harold Prince’s powerful operatic-style staging is terrific, remaining taut and shipshape, while the show still acquires just the right style, ornate but quaint, from the late Maria Bjornson’s wonderful production design. Add to this Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sweeping and lush pastiche of a score, and you’ve got a blockbuster…This is not simply one of the longest-running Broadway musicals – it is, more important, one of the all-time best Broadway musicals. It delivers." Full Review

90
Variety

“Andrew Lloyd Webber has taken the Gaston Leroux potboiler about the love-crazed disfigured genius who lives in the catacombs of the Paris Opera and fashioned it into a thrilling and musically rich mass legit entertainment. The 19th century period spectacle, scenic legerdemain, soaring melodies and exceptional singing are at the service of an involving and piquantly offbeat love story, all of it staged with brilliantly organized flair by Harold Prince, back in top form.” Full Review

Christian Science Monitor

"Lush melodies ardently performed. Lavish spectacle and stunning effects. Overflowing sentiment and luxuriant fantasy...Britain's Andrew Lloyd Webber has triumphed again, this time with a musical extravaganza that may be his most accomplished…The adapters have turned the sturdy romance into a musical spectacular that is...a dazzling piece of collaborative stagecraft." Full Review

The Washington Post

“It is a thrilling show -- as sumptuous as any on Broadway. And it touches the heart in odd and unexpected ways…If you put aside all preconceived notions and let the spell happen, I don't see how you can be disappointed…’Phantom’ follows an insinuating tack -- luring the audience into a luxurious world of gaslight and dark shadows, caressing it with soaring melodies...Buoyed by the strains of Lloyd Webber's lush score, 'Phantom' shimmers with true romanticism." Full Review

The New York Times

"I found my expectations upended, my jaded armor melting away...I found myself with a new appreciation for this beloved show’s gothic theatricality; the waltzing sweep of Harold Prince’s direction; the grandly soaring melodies of its most celebrated songs...It may or may not be a great musical, according to your tastes, or even a good one, but 'Phantom of the Opera' certainly remains a grand, lavishly decked-out galleon of a show, surging on into the 21st century showing few signs of decay." Full Review

CitiTour

"'The Phantom of Opera' not only looks as good as it did in 1988, but still holds the same thrills for audiences as the day it first bowed...'Phantom' will never be my favorite musical; stretches of it drag and the plot remains remarkably simple-minded. But should Prince and the producers continue to make such smart casting decisions, there’s more than a ghost of a chance that this legendary musical will stay on Broadway for another 26 years." Full Review

StageZine

"The magic flows from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s immortal music…From its design standpoint, it has been maintained to perfection…The style of acting and singing is more operatic in nature than realistic for the stage. So the cast has its ups and downs…As a whole, 'The Phantom of the Opera' is still a gem of a show, the last of its kind. It’s a link to the theatrical past when the shows were opulent and eye-popping." Full Review

65
New York Daily News

"To say the score is Lloyd Webber’s best is not saying a great deal...What sets ‘Phantom’ apart is the extraordinarily imaginative work of Bjornson, whose sets and costumes are a breathtaking, witty, sensual tribute to 19th century theater...The characters are not fleshed out, the lyrics are forgettable and the melodramatic plot is not as evocative as it might be. Nevertheless, that master conjurer Hal Prince has woven these seemingly outmoded materials into a grand evening of theater." Full Review
