I really thought I was the only person in the world who hadn’t seen this show yet being that the Phantom of the Opera is the longest running show in the history of Broadway. The Detroit Opera house was sold out! The night I attended, there was also a Tigers game so parking was a challenge so I arrived there a few minutes into the story.

I really enjoyed the costumes and props. Having never been to the Opera House before I thought the angels that framed the stage and the chandelier were part of the building. Very good set design. I also enjoyed the candelabras.

It was really a thrill to hear the pipe organ for the theme song after hearing the song for many years, I actually got to hear it in person. I could not believe how one man’s voice could bellow so loud the walls felt like they were shaking the Phantom himself was an awesome character. Actor singer Tim Martin Gleason plays the phantom, and he was excellent.

On the downside, the theater was small, intimate. The air conditioning was way too cold blowing right down on me. During the intermission it was so crowded you could not get something to drink.

The Phantom of the Opera is a timeless story of seduction and despair and the one show The London Sunday Times called “God’s gift to the musical theatre.”
