Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The theater and show were amazing! This was a bucket list item for me, and I was thrilled to attend with my husband and four friends. Everything was spectacular and phenomenal!!!

It was everything I expected. I’ve never seen it before and it was my second Broadway show. The Orchestra was superb and the performance was outstanding. It was well worth it. The chandelier movements was surprising. The only negative thing I would say, which had nothing to do with the show, is that this show was my daughters senior trip gift and we had a nine year old sitting next to us that talked the entire time, smacked gum and put his feet on the seat in front of him. We were mostly able to ignore him. The show closes next month and we went on the 75th birthday of Andrew Lloyd Webber with a special playbill.

The most amazing musical I've seen. Period. The costumes, the props, the staircase, and of course the chandelier - they were all so well done. I felt like I was even watching a movie. The performance and the music was fantastic. At times you'd get chills when it got to scenes with the Phantom. And I loved how at the end I could hear sniffles all across the theatre (perhaps even my own) - people were totally immersed in it (as was I).

I have to share a funny anecdote just before getting into the theatre. As we were lining up to get in, a few middle-aged women were all hyped up and started taking selfies. One of them yelled into the camera, "Grandma, we're here, after 25 years!!" (not sure what the back story was to that). Then some random guy walking by started singing a tune from one of the songs from the musical and the women cracked up. They were so happy and excited - it was a little annoying that they took selfies non-stop in front of me but their excitement was contagious.

I made sure to catch the show before its closing in February (now April). It's sad but it's good to know it'll be performed in different languages and reach a greater worldwide audience. I hope it does come back to Broadway one day.

I’m a huge fan of this show, and when I heard the show was closing on Broadway, my husband and I had to see it one final time. Great performance from all the actors but the beautiful score is what really is unforgettable. You leave the theater in complete awe. Go see it if you can.

When I heard that my favorite Broadway play was ending after 35+ years, I immediately made arrangements for myself and teenage daughter to see it. There are plays and then there is The Phantom. The best score, storyline and performers measure themselves against this giant, and the raw emotion of the performance commands your attention from start to finish. The memories of THIS performance will not be forgotten and the standing ovation was truly earned.

The show was excellent. I saw it 30 years ago & it still did not disappoint. Wonderful singing & cast. Get there early! Tight seats in the theater.

Seeing the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway has always been on my bucket list! When I heard it was leaving, I just had to make the trip to see it! And boy was it worth it!! Having seen it numerous times with the travelling cast, and in the West End, the show still never disappoints! Andrew Lloyd Webber sure knows how to write a classic show! The talent was absolutely unbelievable! The sets and the costumes were amazing!

Whether you've seen it 1000 times or you've never seen it at all, make sure to go before the Broadway run ends!

Still one of the top Broadway shows after 35 years. The decor is amazing and the cast absolutely great. Most seats have a good view, so no need to purchase the most expensive tickets.
