  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Phantom Of The Opera

    The real news is that the rest of the production has grown old gracefully. Judging by sheer invention, emotional punch and onstage talent, the venerable blockbuster still beats out almost all of the whippersnappers currently on Broadway.

    Andrew Lloyd Webber has taken the Gaston Leroux potboiler about the love-crazed disfigured genius who lives in the catacombs of the Paris Opera and fashioned it into a thrilling and musically rich mass legit entertainment. The 19th century period spectacle, scenic legerdemain, soaring melodies and exceptional singing are at the service of an involving and piquantly offbeat love story, all of it staged with brilliantly organized flair by Harold Prince, back in top form.

    June 21, 2002: With the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera just passing the 6,000 performance milestone (a feat achieved before it only by A Chorus Line, Les Miserables, and Cats), it seemed like an apt time to revisit the Majestic Theatre and see how this landmark musical production is holding up after almost fourteen and a half years. I'm pleased to report that The Phantom of the Opera is holding up very well.
