So, I just bought tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera at the Pantages Theater for this January. Anyone else going to go see it? I'm super excited to finally see this production. I've been wanting to see it for forever now.
Thanks! I know I'll enjoy it! I got seats in Mezzanine Left Center row E, which were the best I could find. Both times I saw Wicked at the Pantages I was in Mezz row B, and I could see fine. I try to tell myself that 3 rows back isn't all that far.
And for those who've seen Phantom at the Pantages (I believe it was there in '97), how does the chandelier move? Does it go out and up to the ceiling? I've read stories about how smaller theaters can't accommodate a chandelier and they resort to just pulling it straight up without going foward first. The Pantages already has it's own huge chandelier, how would they do Phantom's chandelier?
You'll love it. I have had the pleasure of seeing it twice, one of those was at the Pantages. It has always been a very special play to me, I have had most of the dialogue and all of the songs memorized since I was 10!
“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” -Michael Jackson
I saw it about 14 years ago in NYC. It had Michael Crawford and Sara Brightmen(sp?). Loved it! I went to see it on our Junior high band trip to New York. I just love all the music from that play. I usually cry at the end.
