The Phantom of the Opera Review


Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is the longest run show in broadway history. The musical opened in London’s West End in 1986, and on Broadway in 1988. It has won over 70 major theater awards including 3 Olivier Awards, an Evening Standard Award, 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical, 7 Drama Desk Awards, and 5 Outer Critic Circle Awards.


I had the privilege of seeing The Phantom of the Opera at the Detroit Opera House this past week and it’s difficult to put into words how much I enjoyed it. It is an amazing package of singing, dancing, acting, artistry, gorgeous costumes, awesome special effects, and pyrotechnics. All in all the Phantom was phenomenal! It’s no wonder it’s the longest running show on broadway!


Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it.  He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.
