The “three phantoms” concert last night at the Majestic Theatre was very entertaining and enjoyable. The premise was that three singers who had starred in “The Phantom of the Opera” performed songs from a variety of Broadway shows. The three singers – Kevin Gray, Mark Jacoby, Craig Schulman – performed a variety of serious and comical songs from shows including “Guys and Dolls,” “Paint Your Wagon,” and “Secret Garden.” The San Antonio Symphony accompanied the singers and played two solo selections – a medley from “Jesus Christ Superstar” and selections from Les Miserables.
The most enjoyable part of the show was when each singer performed a song that was meaningful to his career and told a story about the song. All three singers were very humorous and comfortable interacting with the audience. The show closed with several selections from “The Phantom of the Opera.” The audience responded by giving the performers several standing ovations.
We were short on time before the show so got a quick meal at the Delivery Market at 310 E. Houston Street near the theater. The Market serves sandwiches, pizza, salads and soup. They also sell beer, wine and a variety of groceries and toiletry items. The Market delivers orders on cute scooters that were parked outside. My husband liked the store so much he started talking about moving to one of the apartments nearby. The sandwiches tasted very good and a sandwich, side and drink only set us back about $15 for two people.
