After 26 Years, Phantom of the Opera Is Still a Classic

Last week, my fiance and I were invited to see Phantom of the Opera.  I had seen the show on Broadway once before, watched the movie, and grew up listening to the music as my parents are big musical fans. It still was a thrill to see the show – the music was great and as a Scandal fan, I really enjoyed seeing Senator Davis in the show.

If you haven’t seen the show or simply would love to see it again, we have two ways that you can see it at a discount. First, show tickets in the rear mezzanine are $27, Monday – Thursday evenings and during Thursday matinees – this is seriously the cheapest ticket on Broadway.

Secondly, Phantom is running a contest – they are looking for artists to design the ultimate Phantom mask and are picking 26 masks to celebrate the show’s 26 years. Five folks will win tickets to a performance and receive a photo of their mask with the cast. If you are interested in learning more, click here!
