This was the most disappointing show I've ever seen. Have been going to Dutch Apple for over 25 yrs. The quality of the performers was excellent. The show itself was terrible. A different version of the original. I will check in the future to find out what version is being performed. The buffet was ok. Very disappointing.

I recently attended a performance of "Phantom" at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre. Little did I know that "Phantom" and "Phantom of the Opera" are not one in the same. So know before you go. Both musicals are based on the same book but the plots are different and the music in "Phantom" is NOT by Andrew Lloyd Weber. Had... More

I had a difficult time enjoying this musical. I have seen Phantom over 10 times and it was so unlike the Webers production that I just could not get into this. The songs were great and very well performed. Wonderful food as always.

I was honestly a bit unsure about the production since I have only seen weber's version. Honestly pleasantly surprised great voices and acting. The set changes at times were a bit clunky, but didn't distract as the show was strong enough to overcome that. Our waiter, Josh, was very attentive and made the experience. Reservations on the phone prior was... More

The show was fantastic. Only disappointed that it wasn't considered a "childrens" show which meant the buffet didn't include kid friendly choices.

Our church group are regular guests of the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre. My favorite part of our visit was the dining experience. We enjoyed table service (vs. buffet style) this time. I was also impressed by the variety of menu choices. The show was nicely done -- I think the performers should feel proud of their hard work.

We have been to Dutch Apple several times. The buffet is very good. The deserts are great. The show was very enjoyable. Though not up to Andrew Lloyd Weber's version of Phantom of the Opera which I preferred.

We went to the dinner theater and enjoyed a very good meal before the show and lots of dessert choices and ice cream. The show was very good - I'd not seen Phantom of the Opera, but have heard lots about it. This was really good.

The show was as good as any Broadway production and the dinner was very decent for the money. A truly enjoyable evening.

First time ever being there in early August for the Mary Poppins play. Dinner was great and the show was first class. We had the sit down meal, not the buffet. Excellent wait staff too ! Had a great time and will definitely go back. In fact, I can't hardly wait to go again. They also have a gift shop... More
