Where has all the life gone?

So little life. Don't worry, I know how to spark things up.

*clears throat*

GUESS WHO GOT TO SEE THIS MUSICAL ON BROADWAY IN NEW YORK CITY. COME ON, GUESS.

Yeah, that would be me.



Okay, so I honestly like the people from the movie better. Whoever portrayed Christine was...uh. Not really right for the job. Her voice had too much vibrato...it sounded a lot like Carlotta's was supposed to sound like. Which is not how it goes. And whoever played Erik was, like, freakishly high-pitched at times, and then way too low at others. It was confusing.

Raoul I will not go on long about, but he reminded me of a Great Depression-era policeman.

Anyway, Erik and Christine. Erik cried a lot more here than in the movie.

And Christine.

HOW DID IT POSSIBLY TAKE YOU THAT LONG TO TELL IT WAS THE PHANTOM AND NOT PIANGI. THE PHANTOM IS LIKE TWICE PIANGI'S HEIGHT. GOOD GRIEF.

And Christine is also way too clingy. She hug-attacks everyone. It's weird.

It's sad that Erik and Christine didn't end up together. But at least Christine's not dead. And I hear that a sequel to the musical is in the works...?

LOL (okay I know this post was from, lik, a reallyyy long time ago. I'm a new phangirl, deal with me (; haha) but I COMPLETELY agree with the whole Christine hug-attack bit! Especially with Raoul on the "All I Ask of You" scene :P AND, OMG, GD-era policeman, I love it!! I saw it on Broadway last week, and my mom, aunt and I were talking about it after it, and (they did like teh play very much) I was all, "OMG, did you see Raoul's shirt at the end?!" and they exchenged "Whaaaaaaat?" looks, and I go, "You know, Christine's fiancee?" and both of them, at the exact same time, go, "Ohhhh! Gayboy!" and I'm like "*laughs hysterically* EXACTLY!"

But other than all of the things you mentioned above, it was good (: I liked the whole Erik crying thing, though (: It gave him a sensative side, and was more book-Phantom-dies-of-a-broken-heart (:
