BWW Review: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA Makes a Believer at Dr. Phillips CenterBWW Review: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA Makes a Believer at Dr. Phillips Center
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 8, 2014

In the summer of 1998, as part of my high school's drama club, I made my first trip to New York City. Over the course of seven days, I saw eight musicals, both on and Off-Broadway. While I was already a devout musical theatre fan, seven of those eight solidified my love for the art form, while one left me cold, and slightly angry. That show was THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. I have spent the past 16 years saying that Andrew Lloyd Weber and Charles Hart's musical was the worst Broadway or touring show that I have ever seen. So, when it was announced that its newly reimagined staging would be the first touring production to grace Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, I was honestly hopeful that as I aged, my appreciation for the longest running show in Broadway history would have as well; and I am happy to say that it most certainly did.
