$200 seems unusually high, you should check discount sites like Broadwaybox which you can book the ticket right through them, also there are some good seats for around 80 - 90 $ depending on where you want to sit.

If you decide to sit in the balcony, try for the front section, or at least first few rows in the back half, the back of the balcony is kinda far away.

If you decide to go orchestra seating, of course try not to get a seat too far back where the balcony cuts off the chandelier.

Again my personal fav. seats are the boxes, but they are not available online. The seats are close, you can see the actors perfectly, but its somewhat a side view so its great for someone like me that likes to watch the sets change. Also the box seats have gone up to about $80 these days.

Another cool thing to do that I have started doing, keep an eye on Mme Giry whenever she is on stage, she does alot of little things in the background and interactions that are quite interesting to watch

For anyone who's ever gone backstage at the Majestic, Wally - the longtime stage doorman - is retiring.

How do you actually get to the backstage / at the back door? I've never been to the Broadway show.

Two ways.

The usual way is the alley behind the Majestic - the alley door is on 45th Street next to the Golden Theatre (the alley is shared by the Majestic, Golden, and Jacobs). Most people end up waiting at that door. Down the alley, there is a second door with a buzzer which opens to another alley and the actual stage door is down that alley. You walk in almost right behind Box 5.

The other way is a door near the stage on the left side of the orchestra seats (well, left if you're in the audience and facing the stage). It leads to the same little area behind the wings and Box 5.

Very Happy Cool. I have a very good chance of getting to see Phantom this summer. Hopefully I can at least do the stage door.

Do people normally go to the stage door, or try to go backstage? Is there any protocol, good manners, permissions, etc, that I need to know about?

Based on Chris Mann's Twitter feed, it looks like he's wrapping up with the US Tour? Anyone know who's taking over for him?

According to the official Facebook page, it'll be Derrick Davis. Also, Jordan Craig is the new Raoul, and former Christine Trista Moldovan is the new Carlotta. From the clips I've found of Derrick singing other material, he sounds pretty awesome!

EE-wall-dt.

I have tickets to see the current tour, after Derrick takes over. Hope it's good....I keep reading reading comments from people who say a lot has been changed, and not for the better.

Check out this fun live-on-stage Mash-up of Phantom, CATS, and School of Rock from GMA this week:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQ46S_fspH8

Great entrance from the Phantom!  Very Happy

And here's another video of the performance but with some fun footage prior to it, and the brief interview with ALW:

I think the Phantom and Christine here are Jeremy Stolle and Ali Ewoldt.

Since he was a regular backstage at the Majestic and was included in a lot of photos (and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ADiLSQid9M from a few years ago), I thought I'd mentioned that Hugh Panaro's beloved Labradoodle, Soot, passed away yesterday at the age of 13.

He was a lovely dog and I know Hugh's costars adored him, too.

so sad to hear about soot.


does anyone still read these boards, they seem to be rather dead of late, I guess most of us get out news now from people's instagram etc.

So looks like a new NYC cast is imminent with Jordan leaving to do Hamilton for March and rumors of James leaving.
Rebecca is also leaving (Mme Giry) if she hasn;t already

I'd not heard that Rebecca was leaving. Any ideas on who will replace the leads?

had to check playbill as the phantom side is late to update as usual. Linda Balgord is back as Giry.

As for the Phantom, my money is on Chris Mann, he left a note on one of his instagram pics that he is putting down the mask, for now.

Personally I would have liked Jordan to get a crack at the Phantom, but he is young and will have time later on if he wants to I'm sure.
There has not been a Raoul - Phantom in a while and currently at the majestic there are something like 4 phantom understudies other than Raoul (they seem to have stopped the Raoul understudying Phantom a while ago.

I also think the current tour phantom is astounding vocally so would love him to make it to the broadway version in time also.

Hi all! Sorry for not posting this sooner. Though, I'm really surprised no one's beaten me to it!

Anyway, just a heads-up that the tour is coming back into Canada as of next week. It's going to be at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa from October 19th to 29th. :-) I've already got tickets for two nights!!! Squeee!!! Granted, OK, it is the Lawrence Connor production, which may be why no one's posted yet. But still, it's a chance to hear POTO live again! And, although I totally agree with the analysis I've read of the problems with Connor's new staging and design, I have to say that, from when I heard it in Toronto :-( two years ago, I couldn't fault the purely musical aspects of the show! Now, granted, it'll be a slightly different cast this time, as it looks like Chris Mann's gone. Bummer! He was really good imo, as were the Christine and Raoul who played opposite him (who've also left, but whose names I can't remember right now)! So I'll be interested to hear how the new leads do.

Anyway, you can get tickets online here. Have no idea how it's selling! But hopefully folks can still get some. :-)
