“Phantom Phanatic !”
Have long awaited the opportunity to own this original work !
EXCELLENT !! Great value. Thank you.
What’s left to be said about Andrew Lloyd Webber’s adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera a decade after its premiere? That it’s maddeningly ubiquitous? A stitch-up of various themes shoplifted from the Italian operatic repertoire? A critic-proof crowd pleaser that’s probably being staged somewhere in the world as you read this? A megahit that will likely outlive Titanic in the pop-culture pantheon, Phantom has largely redefined–for better or worse–the manner in which modern musicals are conceived, staged, and marketed. Its influence has reached far beyond the traditional confines of London and Broadway. A favorite example: an abridged version that was the centerpiece of Los Angeles’s longest-running transvestite revue, replete with 14-inch chandeliers and a man-playing-a-woman-playing-a-man in the title role. –Jerry McCulley
