22 Years Later:Is Phantom Still Worth It?
The first time I saw The Phantom of the Opera
was in March 1993. I was in my first year of acting school and we received free tickets as part of our school's program. That was also the last time I saw the show. Until last week. Growing up the cast recording to the show was one of my favorites. Seeing the show for the first time I knew going in I was probably going to like it. After all I loved the music and had been wanting to see the show for a long time. It did not disappoint. Now while I enjoyed the show I just never got around to seeing it again until now. Going in I wondered if the show would be as fresh and interesting all these years later.
I have to say I enjoyed it as much as I did sixteen years ago. Is it my favorite show? No. But you do get your money's worth. It is still one of the most romantic shows on Broadway. Look a show doesn't last this long for nothing right. Now how much longer the show will last I really couldn't tell you. As I'm sure you have already heard a sequel to Phantom, Love Never Dies, is set to open in London this Spring with a Broadway opening next Fall. Will lighting strike twice? We will soon find out. Until next time theatre fans.
