I have seen phantom twice now. I think I could watch it every single day and never get tired of it. Simply beautiful - the best musical there's ever been (or is likley to ever be). If you haven't seen it - why not? Go see it. Even if you have to sell a few things to do it! It'll be worth it!

I attended Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre on Saturday 10 November 2012 as a gift from a dear friend. It was just magical! the cast are so professional; their humour, and their emotions, sadness and comedy, all came through taking us, the audience, with them. I always wondered why people go to London just to see shows - now I know why and I'm hooked! My sincere and hearty appreciation goes to all members of the cast and the supporting staff. thank you for a memorable night.

I went to see the show last week and I thought it was utterly breath taking. I’ve never enjoyed a show so much. The costumes were beautiful and the signing was out of this world. I’d go and see this again. I highly recommend.

We came to see the show for the 4th time on Saturday 7th Nov (matinee). Sat in 2nd row of grand circle. Haven't been for several years but was as amazed as ever by how everyone manages to make it seem like the first performance. Really like the way surround sound is used - made it very eerie. Everything, music, acting, singing, costumes, sets were faultless. FoH and bar staff were all very friendly too. Particularly liked that the Phantom wore a poppy for remembrance day/week. That was a really lovely gesture. Looking forward to our next visit, even though the youthfulness of the cast made me feel my age a bit this time - but that's my problem. You know what they say about policemen getting younger. Thank you all for a spell binding afternoon - you made an old woman very happy.

The three of us totally enjoyed this production. My older son is a Phantom fanatic and said this play was superb. The music, costumes, and singing were great. We sat in the stalls close to the stage at C8 and had fantastic views of the actors and chandelier. If we were to go again, we might choose the lower balcony front center seating. My only complaint is the rules regarding photography. I asked the receptionist before the play about photography rules and was told it was ok to take pictures before and after the play. I took pictures before the play started. As I was preparing to take pictures after the play ended and most people had left, I was yelled at by a rude usher that also made some inappropriate comments. Management needs to be more consistent and polite with interpretation and enforcement of the rules.

I've seen the film version with Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler and love it! First time I've seen this on stage and wanted to walk straight back in after watching the matinee show to watch the evening one. Absolutely breathtaking. Sofia Escobar was outstanding and John-Owen Jones was also outstanding. Definitely recommend; and so want to see it again... Lots of times in the near future!! A must watch musical; plus the staff at Her Majesty's Theatre are very polite and helpful too!

I thought The Phantom of The Opera was absolutely OUTSTANDING. Ramin Karimloo's vocals and acting was brilliant. He really brought out the vulnerability in the Phantom. Gina Beck was also outstanding and her rendition of Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again was fantastic and it brought me to tears. Simon Bailey was brilliant and a very good singer. I really enjoyed the show. When Christine came back to give the Phantom the ring I was in tears. An outstanding musical that I would highly recommend. (Sat in the Grand Circle, row E, seat 14 and the view was very, very good.)

What we thought

Magical beautiful CAPTIVATING

Phantom today leaves a Titanic sized wake behind it in which the rest wallow for nearly 30 years.

Her Majesty's Theatre London, is where it all began. October 1986 and the curtain went up on the biggest gamble of Lloyd Webber's life.
