Not Broadway, but I'm a huge Phantom of the Opera fan.

Saw it in Toronto twice and in Pittsburgh twice. The Pittsburgh shows were not as good as Toronto and I understand the Broadway version rivals Toronto.

My biggest regret - when we saw it for the first time (my wife and I) we immediately on exiting the theater bought 4 tickets and brought our kids back later that summer to see it. Paul Stanley was on bill to play the lead role in a few shows that summer but we couldn't swing seeing one of them. I wish now that I did.

I've never actually seen phantom, other than the movie. I'd like to see it one day though.

The last time I was in NYC we saw Once, which was absolutely amazing. I really want to go back and see Peter and the Starcatcher as well as Newsies.

It's very loud, visual. Lots of shit like gunfire, flames, loud music.

The best performance I've ever seen live. If you ever get a chance to go see it, go.

There are a number of off Broadway shows I really wanted to see but never got around to it.

I have though divulged in a lot of small theater productions. Took my then 7yr old to see a local production of Oz. It was pretty good.

This is all I could really find for Once, it was the Tony's last year. It's awesome though if you see it live.

Yeah I've wanted to see Wicked all my life so far but just haven't been able to. I've almost seen it a couple of times but i guess karma wasn't on my side. One day though.

I liked the one in New Orleans better than the one in DC.

I love the really old musicals from the 1950s......my all-time favorite is The King and I. I was fortunate enough to see Yul Brynner reprise the role in a Broadway revival show that he took on the road in the mid-1970s.....GAWD, he was good! He performed this role on stage 4,300 times, in addition to making the movie. Wotta man!

I don't like Phantom of the Opear that much, the songs are good but the story is meh.

I saw the broadway version of Les Miserables which was great, another personal favorite is Fiddler on the Roof.
