THE NEW CHANGES ARE DISAPPOINTING

If you've never seen the original Phantom of the Opera, you'll likely enjoy the experience not knowing what you're really missing. Those however that have attended previously will be disappointed with the changes, especially the Masqureade scene. It went from an amazing spectacle to nothing noteworthy . Performers & orchestra did fantastic. I enjoyed Mark Campbell as Phantom. Some of the changes though seem to have caused a lack of passion/connection between the characters. I usually attend a few times when Phantom is in town, once will be enough with the "new" version.

NOT AS ENJOYABLE AS PREVIOUS VERSION

Sound let it down for me, vocals were drowned out by the orchestra and when you could hear Them they were too harsh. New set was interesting and clever . If you saw the last production in Chicago you will be disappointed.

DISAPPOINTED IN THIS VERSION OF PHANTOM.

While it was a good show, it was Not a phenomenal show. The singing was good but I have heard better. I have seen better Productions of Broadway's Phantom of the Opera , this show was very different from past shows I have seen I did not think it was as well done and I was let down and disappointed. It felt like they did not want to put much money into this show. The set was revolving and though interesting didn't feel like a broadway set. The singing was good but not mind blowing I have seen better. I didn't feel the passion from the actors in the lead roles. Costumes were not as good as in past either. Masquerade was a disappointment as well. No grand stair case or splendid costumes. No cymbals cashing not well enough singing. I guess if this was your first time seeing it you would have loved it but I have seen it many times before and this performance was a let down because the past Phantoms I have seen were just so phenomenal and amazing.

DISAPPOINTING

Very disappointed. Could not see because everything was so dark, no definition of stage--everything was gray or black. Could not understand words because is was too loud. It was a gift to myself and my sisters from my husband, how do I tell him it wasn't the greatest after he spent so much money. On the other hand liked the costume and scenery changes. Some almost seemed magical.

BEAUTIFUL!

Amazing performance by everyone. The opera house is beautiful and the seats were great. The newer version of phantom is definitely not what you're used too if you've seen the original. Music and story line is the same but seems they took the music and made different meanings throughout the story. It was more intimate and passionate between the main characters. I will say the orchestra pit was absolutely breath taking! I was so moved and felt goosebumps more than once. The music made the play and would see it again in a heartbeat! Only downside is why they would serve popcorn and a upscale venue. People made a mess!

MISSING NEARLY ALL EMOTION OF THE ORIGINAL

While the show was enjoyable as I have seen it many time, the performances from nearly the entire cast was average at best. Orchestra was phenomenal it drowned out all vocals and the high powered songs that should have large loud vocal crescendos was just not there. The phantom was not convincing as a dark soul and seemed more like a high schoolers rendition of the part. Boat scene and masquerade scene were very disappointing in their new versions - gone is the shear awe one has seeing this show - first timers likely to enjoy but are certainly missing out on tons of more raw emotion and one hundred times better singing from other performances - if you have seen the show you should pass
