Is this a musical for you?
The Phantom of the Opera is a must for everyone as it has been widely regarded as one of the best for a very long time. The music and set are amazing and are even impressive for those who have seen many musicals before this one. Our advice is to avoid this musical if you are going with kids under the age of 12 because there are a lot of scary scenes that they may not understand. If you want to take your kids to a musical we highly recommend the Lion King or the amazing Aladdin, which are just as good.
