Lovely night at a local Theater. My husband and I attended the production of "The King and I", in Cockeysville MD. The show was presented as a dinner theater including a buffet, which we did not arrive early enough to enjoy. While we were pleased with the show,anyone considering attending, should be aware that it is comprised of a local cast and crew many of whom are students of the associated school of the arts. The theater is small and all of the tables have an excellent view of the stage, though the chairs are hard and uncomfortable; our waitress was friendly and fast with our drink orders, however the selection of wine and beer was relatively limited. I would recommend the experience, but only to those who enjoy local theater.
Did you see the same show?. I think the other review was written by a cast member's mom. Either that or they saw a different show. It was awful in every way, from the cheezy sets to the crumbling building to the bad singing to the awful acting. This is not the Phantom that is well known and loved. If there is a god in heaven, this one is forgettable. That's about the best I can say about it. The food was worse than high school cafeteria, but the desserts were okay. The Phantom sounded like he gargled with razor blades before singing. Yuck. Reminded me of a two-bit show you might see in a church basement somewhere. I'm from New Jersey, and all I can say is if this is "Baltimore's" actor theater, I feel sorry for Baltimore. Avoid at all costs.
Phantom Of the Opera.
Phantom of the Opera
Just saw Phantom of the Opera over the weekend and it was fabulous. It was an original adaptation based closely off of the book, which was a pleasant surprise.
The actor playing The Phantom was incredible. His strong acting abilities made you sympathize with the character. He was amazing and I wonder where they got such strong talent. Not to mention that the beautiful young lady playing Christine had one of the most wonderful voices I have ever heard. She brought the role to life and I enjoyed watching every moment she was on stage. I hope to see the leading players on Broadway some day because they are good enough to be there.
I cried at the end of the show because it was all very realistic. You can tell that everyone up there enjoys being there.
I recommend that everyone should go see this show.
