I just saw the brand new National Tour of Phantom of the Opera.
This post will go in two different ways haha
First is: I think the way the show was restaged was kind of like Les Mis meets Phantom. Very well crafted. I was still not believing that they were able to do such a big production on a Tour. It was remarkable.
Nowww, I love soooooo much the original that it hurt me a little bit to not see my favorite scenes on stage. I was expecting to see the staircase in Masquerade. The Chandelier did NOT hit the ground. But one of the things I liked about the new staged version is the Cemetery scene. It looked like a cemetery to me.
All I can say it was a bit of a mixed feeling I had. But overall it was an awesome experience. And the show is such a classic. I loved it even though the original is my favorite show ever.
I hope it stops by again!
