By Andrew Lloyd Webber, Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe. Windmill Theatre Company (Vic). Director: Chris Hughes. Musical Director: Julia Buchanan. Choreographer: Robert Mulholland. Drum Theatre. June 21 - July 14, 2013
I well remember the professional production of the The Phantom of the Opera and I was equally impressed with Windmill’s effort.
Although budget constraints did not allow for the massive chandelier used in the professional production, everything else about this was spectacular. There were moving staircases, and walkways, a motorized boat and scenery flying in and out to allow the action to flow. The lighting was also very innovative and the costumes lavish.
