“Phantom of the Opera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Had a fantastic Saturday night watching Phantom. The show is stunning - outstanding performances - I even cried at the end! The theatre itself is very traditional and the architecture is beautiful. In places it possibly looks a little worn - but I think this actually adds to its charm. Perhaps the only downside was how far the circle seating area protruded over the stalls - where we were sat it didnt hinder our viewing - but not sure if this was a problem for the seating further back - especially on a performance where some of the action takes place higher up on the stage. However, all in all a wonderful evening - enjoyed every minute.
