Features: Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 stage production has a new home beneath the Grand Canal Shops of the Venetian Hotel and Casino, and in true Vegas fashion, the show has been flashed up, cut of any downtime and thrust onto an elaborate, over-the-top custom stage. You don't want to miss this Vegas version of the pop-classic musical.
Why We Go: With stunning special effects -- from an indoor fireworks display to a scream-inducing chandelier crash -- the $40 million theater is reason enough to see Phantom.
- The Chandelier: Center stage, literally and figuratively, the light fixture weighs 2,100 pounds, features 29,444 hand-strung crystals and cost $4.5 million to make. It's also composed of four separate parts, which are showingly constructed at the shows opening by the 40 computers also used to operate it's demise.
- The Setting: The Phantom Theater features billowy red seats, gold statues, an 80-foot-wide, hand-painted dome ceiling and opera boxes lining the theater. Those boxes are filled with 70, individually crafted mannequins decked out in period costumes. Wow.
Inside Knowledge: In 2009, the Venetian put on it's first Phantom Phans Week from September 16-20. With 250 to 300 participants dressed as the masquerading characters of the hit musical taking over the canals, the spirit of Phantom hung thick over the water. Be sure to look out for the Phan Week when you're planning a trip to Vegas, 2009's may have been the first, but it certainly won't be the last.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Prepare for a Condensed Show: If you're a fan of the original, then you'll probably be OK with this 90-minute version, but if you don't know the story, you many not want to start here. The plot points move pretty quickly -- or get brushed over entirely.
- Don't Expect the Classic: Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical was always a poppy version of the serialized 1909 story. The Las Vegas version keeps that trend going, and this is a pop-extravaganza of a Broadway new classic.
