The Phantom of the Opera London Review:
“The Phantom of The Opera… a mystery never fully explained. Well, that may be so, but as one of the West End’s longest running shows it is safe to say that many will know what the musical is about. Even if the story is unknown, what is guaranteed are the lavish costumes, vast sets and songs which you will definitely have heard, intentionally or otherwise. If you are after drama and a spectacle then this is absolutely the right show.” “This classic show is timeless, the genius musical score and charming love story is guaranteed to continuously draw in the audiences from all over the world.” Naomi Stevens
