The Majestic Theatre belongs to the Shubert Organization. It was originally built in the year 1927 by the Chanin brothers, who were at the time real-estate magnates. It was supposed to be a part of a complex which consisted of two other theatres. These were the Royale (a mid-sized house) and the Theatre Masque, which is now converted into the John Golden (a small house). The Majestic- which was a large musical house fit in perfectly with the other mentioned venues and enabled producers to move shows on the basis of their ticket sales to this truly majestic venue. In the year 1930, the Chanins transferred ownership of all these places to the present day owners- the Shuberts. Today, it has lovely shows and make sure you manage to catch one at least to re-live the olden times.

  • Took my daughter to see Phantom of the Opera. Remarkable outward beauty in the theatre district. Wonderful night out and would not hesitate going again.

  • What a ornate classic theater! The moldings, ceilings, and fixtures are filled with designs, life, and impact. The Phantom of the Opera is an amazing musical which is the longest running on Broadway at this time. The carpet and chairs a bit aged. The staff is friendly and very kind.

  • The reason we visited was for the Phantom of the Opera and the performance was flawless but I wanted to take my fiance to NYC for a true experience. The experience was awful. We were treated like cattle, all herded to the bottom floor until they got ready. We dressed nice as it was a special occasion and there were no chairs for the cattle. We all had to stand around for about 15 minutes, this is after standing in line outside for twenty minutes or more. All employees seemed miserable and were not very hospitable. When they checked bags, they simply looked in them, in today's age I'd think they would be a little more security conscious, after all breathing room was slim to non-existent. Drinks were stupid expensive. Again the only thing to save this experience was the performance. Any other performances we go to will NOT be in NYC.

  • I went and watched the Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic Theater and now I understand why it is the longest running Broadway show. Definitely a classic. Fabulous costume and stage design and great visual tricks. I got seat R5 in the back session of the orchestra, decent seat but I can not really tell how the actors look alike, let alone the expression of the actors, thus, I strongly recommend to get the front and center rows of the orchestra , such as Row E or even closer to the stage.

  • Phantom is great for sticking to the original staging of the show, even if it's a little dated. Queuing in lobby pre-show has people packed in like a sardine can. No bad seat in the house, but be advised, there is not much legroom and the seats were musty. It also was very warm in the balcony seats. Also, the bathrooms were spartan, at best, and in dire need of an update. Think ladies room at a public school circa 1981.
