Lacked storyline and did not draw me in. The group singing was more like watching a carnival with cross-noise, making the voices inaudible. Too much like a fair.
High marks for Costumes, Choreography and the sopranos were good.
The detail to movement in the dance routines is worthy of mention.
These folks worked their butts off to put a production together like this.
Perhaps the theatre is too old and acoustics are off making vocals less distinct.
Phantom is a drama and I expected that and no such delivery.
Seems they went off script to compete with Lion King, Motown and Jersey Boys.
If I wanted visual dazzling I would see the Lion King. Music with a story, Jersey Boys tops the list hands down.
We chose the front mezzanine and thought it good at $142 per person.
Wine is $24 a glass. Service at the bar is chatty and the bartender fairly dumb to hand a large crowd, opting to talk about rather than serve quickly. Then, he gets caught at the last minute rushing and telling people, I can't serve you.
The doormen will look inside every girl's purse (probably for alcohol).
