As a Phantom fan from 25 years I was amazed at the caliber of talent that this production
showcased. I was expecting this production to be concert version much like Les Miserables or Chess in the past but this was a fully staged and constumed event including the famed chandelier. Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Bogess repeated their roles as the Phantom and Christine that they played in the sequel Love Never Dies. They were both perfection as was Hadley Fraser as Raul. Sierra's Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again was the best interpretation I have heard since Sarah Brightman. After the show Andrew Lloyd Webber came out to introduce the original cast and creators who sang a few encores.
This is a must see if you have an opportunity to see one of the encore performances this week. I believe it will be released on DVD and most likely PBS at some point but seeing it on the big screen in the theater is a wonderful experience.
