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...

This is one of NYC's architectural gems- the inside of this theater truly lives up to its' name- 'majestic'. We saw 'The Phantom of the Opera', a beautiful love story that's been playing on Broadway for decades, but never gets tired. The performance was flawless, and the musical score is a timeless classic, with numerous memorable and familiar tunes that... More

I want to file a complain about Hugh Barnett, a Manager at the Majestic Theater. Interacting with him was a truly ugly experience. On Friday, June 13 I brought over 100 people to see The Panthom of the Opera at the majestic Theater. The group was The Children's Choir from Houston, TX and their parents. The choir received a big... More

This play is one of the most mind-blowing plays I've ever seen. At majestic theatre at broadway, the play is one of a kind. The actors are superb and believe it or not the set up is the best I've seen till date.

I recently went to a performance of the Phantom of the Opera (May 12th). Loved the play. Hated the staff that shows you where you seats are. I took a very bad fall on the stairs dropping my full drink all over myself and the stairs. NOT ONE MEMBER OF THE STAFF ASSISTED ME. When I explained that I had... More

Went to watch Phantom of the Opera. Great to see the casts and their great acting skills! Majestic theater was awesome too! Advisable to get the seats near the stage for the "chandelier" experience!

This old theatre is so beautiful on the inside and Phantom is a tried and true classic. That's where this evening stopped being magical for us. The old seats in the Majestic are cramped and awful. They really pack you in like sardines. Expect to be hunched over with your arms crossed in front of you for 3.5 hours. Notespecially... More

We just went to watch Phantom of the Opera at Majestic Theatre. We bought the tickets for the matinee show at the ticket booth. Didnt expect we could get one same day. The show was perfect. Full house. We got the rear row seat at the side, but even then, the play can be seen and heard perfectly. Love the... More

I enjoyed a wonderful performance of Phantom of the Opera here. The seats were great. The staff got you in in a timely manner and the production began promptly. If you're travelling to NYC and want to take in a show, POTO and this venue are a must see.
