Saw Phantom-Las Vegas Spectacular!!!!#1
Posted: 7/7/07 at 10:45am
My husband and I saw Phantom in Las Vegas on Tuesday night (7/3). We absolutely loved it! That night it was Brent Barrett, Kristi Holden and Tim Martin Gleason. I really didn't know what to expect, in fact we almost didn't get tickets because I wasn't sure I'd enjoy it. We've only seen the tour in Atlanta in the past and it was only "okay" (mainly due to the terrible acoustics at the Fox), though I love the music and the story. So I was completely surprised and thrilled when I saw the new theater and chandelier. We had great seats, right Orchestra, row P. We got our tickets half price at the Tix4Tonight ticket booth and then showed up at the Venetian at 9a.m. that morning to get in line for seat assignment. The orchestra sounded great and the sound system was incredible! The sets, the costumes...all beautiful. But what stole the show was the vocal and acting talent. All the leads were superb (loved Kristi Holden!), but Brent Barrett was just breathtaking in his part...his voice...his ability to convey the despair of the phantom....he just brought me to tears at the end. For me it was practically a religious experience.

Just thought I'd share!

I'm glad you enjoyed the show. I'm thinking about going to see it in December. I just had a question about getting your tickets. When you bought your tickets at Tix4Tonight, did they just give you vouchers for seats? Why did they not assign seats to you at that time? How long was the line and how long did you have to wait to get your seats?

Yes,we were given ticket vouchers at Tix4Tonight. We bought them the day before our show (7/2). Then we were to go to the Venetian the next day between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to get the actual tickets and seat assignments. I don't know why they do it that way. We were warned to get there early to get better seats. I arrived at the Venetian ticket booth at 9a.m. and was the first one there, but a lot more people showed up very quickly after that. There was also some confusion about whether to get in the "Will Call" line or the "Ticket Sales" line if you had vouchers. You want to get in the "Ticket Sales" line. Some people went to the wrong one and lost there place in line and got very upset. Once sales desk opened, I had my tickets within minutes and was out of there!

I would suggest going to Tix4Tonight the day before you want to see the show which will allow you to get to the Venetian early the next day for better seats.

I thought it was definitely worth the trouble for half price seats!

Where are the Tix4Tonight located? We paid full price for Phantom and Mamma when we wen there early this year and it didn't disappoint :P

Can't wait for the Jersey Boys to open at the Palazzo Tower!

Two locations: one in front of the Fashion Mall across from the Wynn hotel and one in front of MGM.

Phantom was worth a full price ticket.

We also saw Le Reve at the Wynn and it was good but I'm kind of over Cirque de Soleil type shows. I've seen two and that's enough.

One more thing:

I was told while I was there that a cast recording of this production is being planned! Yeah!

Glad you enjoyed it!!! Are they really planning a recording? Even though Sierra Boggess isn't in it anymore, I guess it won't be "original" Las Vegas Cast. I'd rather see an Australian recording with Anthony Warlow or a Complete ("international") recording, like they did with Les mis.

I think someone said the student ticket prices are only for UNLV students. I could be wrong though.

The Tix4Tonight booths in Las Vegas are fabulous. Not enough people take advantage of them. The one I like to go to is under the coke bottle across NY NY. We have gotten tickets for Liza, KA, Mamma Mia, Phantom, Ann Margaret and many others that way. Glad you enjoyed Brent Barrett. If you want to know when he is on all you have to do is check his website.
