It was great to watch such an excellent actors live on stage, the scenography was also great and the special effects fantastic, you would not expect it in a live theater, one downside was the people in the audience - some coming in sweat pants, playing with the phones and not really adding to the overall fantastic experience.

We've been to other Broadway shows but nothing like The Phantom. We were mesmerized from beginning to end. The cast, amazing. The sets, breathtaking. The music, exquisite. The storyline, well, it's The Phantom, it's awesome! The theater, phenomenal. I read the reviews about the rudeness of the employees at The Majestic. Several reviewers wrote about unpleasant staff experiences. So, although... More

I would like to start off by saying that the show Phantom of the Opera itself was phenomenal. The cast had a great vibe, the props, the music, everything was beautifully executed. On that note, I cannot say the same for the actual staff of the Majestic Theatre. I'm warning you now, if you or a family member is DISABLED... More

My husband bought us tickets for one of my favorite productions, Phantom of the Opera. We saw the show last Saturday at 2pm. The theater is located in the heart of the theater district. We purchased pre- paid parking which was very helpful. The theater itself was a very lovely grande dame. She was the perfect location for such a... More

Having been to a couple of other Broadway theaters I was pleasantly surprised with the Majestic. Our seats were in Row Q in the Orchestra. With the pitch of the seating we had an excellent view and ample leg room. The Phantom of the Opera of course was amazing. Overall a great experience and one I will likely repeat agin... More

I brought my two teenage daughters to Phantom at The Majestic. At intermission they went to the restroom only to find an amazing long line. They stood & waited. When it was announced the second act was about to begin, there was still about 50 women in line. My daughters ended up having to miss most of the first scene... More

I bought a 5th row ticket for my last day visit in Nyc. I was excited to finally to finally see this show I've been wanting to see for 20 years. Ok. Sitting next to me, a Russian female tourist apparently doesn't understand to turn down her LOUD MOBILE PHONE. It rang not ONCE, BUT TWICE. I looked for ushers... More

I had to visit this famous theatre because my favourite Broadway show has been playing there for the best part of 30 years. It was fantastic to be in such a historical venue watching such a fantastic production. The Phantom of the Opera was a fantastic show and the magic of the theatre added to the experience. The only negative... More

We saw a great evening performance of Phantom of the Opera here on July 14th. The Majestic is an old, beautiful theater and a perfect venue for Phantom. However, it's a little more enjoyable if you're prepared. First of all, when the doors open for the evening performance, you're all herded downstairs. It's crowded with very few places to sit...
