LA Weekly - Highly Recommended

"...Based on Gaston Leroux's gothic romance, and reminiscent of the fable "Beauty and the Beast," the story follows a promising singer Christine (Trista Moldovan) as she falls under the spell of a masked and ghoulish Phantom (Tim Martin Gleason inhabits the role with conviction), who haunts the Paris Opera House. The superb cast also includes Sean MacLaughlin as Christine's suitor Raoul, Kim Stengel playing the pompous diva Carlotta. Moldovan's clear, pure voice only occasionally competes with the lush sounds of the orchestra. Infamous for borrowing several musical phrases from Puccini and even Pink Floyd, Webber's melodies may be as pedestrian as this musical is popular. His composition moves seamlessly from grand opera to romantic duets to rock opera (wailing electric guitar), all of which mesh well with occasional harp and violin solos, and the soaring, tender melodies that create several shivery moments."

Pauline Adamek - Highly Recommended

"...The production design is stunning. Masterful mise-en-scène reigns throughout as Maria Björnson treats us to incredibly detailed dioramas. Her costumes are stunning -- they must have a separate eighteen wheeler for the rhinestones alone. Her stage is a shifting, moving world with full dimension. The opening moments of the show, the resurrection of a long-dead Paris Opera House, is more powerful, more stunning than the best CGI Hollywood could offer."
