Hi! My name is Elliot and I am Hotel Concierge for New York Guest and have been doing this for over 2 years now. I majored in Musical Theatre in college and have always had a passion for the theatre scene. I have probably seen 100 or more Broadway shows; I usually see at least one every month and my first Broadway show was Cats almost 20 years ago! One of the things I like best about being a New York Guest Concierge is helping people from all over the world choose which Broadway show to go to. With over 30 shows playing on Broadway there’s a show for everyone!
I finally went to see The Phantom of the Opera a few nights ago and I was completely blown away. Between the beautiful music, breathtaking costumes, incredible scenery and the amazing special effects, I was transformed in a different world. It is pretty remarkable that after nearly 25 years, this show still has what it takes to be one of the best on Broadway. The Phantom of the Opera is perfect for any guest looking to have that once in a lifetime theatre experience. People from around the world can appreciate this show, and that’s what makes it Broadway’s longest running musical!
If you are bringing a group to New York City, Phantom is an excellent choice for your group itinerary. Because of the wide-ranging appeal, you can be sure that everyone will love it! Contact New York group travel department for pricing and details.
Did you know there is a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera currently playing in London called Love Never Dies? It actually takes place in Brooklyn’s popular beach town, Coney Island. The story is set about 10 years after The Phantom of the Opera. The music is again by Andrew Lloyd Webber who started writing it in 1990. Sadly the production has been plagued with problems so it’s still not clear if it will ever be deemed worthy of the Great White Way (that’s Broadway’s nickname in case you didn’t know). We can only hope!
This show often sells out in advance, so it is advisable to book your tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera in advance in order to avoid any chance of disappointment.
