Love comforts tragedy

"I never promised you a rose garden. I never promised you perfect justice . . .The only reality I offer is challenge, and being well is being free to accept it or not at whatever level you are capable. I never promise lies, and the rose-garden world of perfection is a lie"

Don’t adore Colm Wilkinson’s Phantom but Rebecca Caine’s voice is absolutely gorgeous so I can’t help but occasionally gush over the Canadian Cast Recording

If he were still alive, Gaston Leroux would probably drop a chandelier on all involved in the making of Love Never Dies.

The music is very beautiful (lyrics questionable) but Erik from the book and Erik from the musical(s) are two totally different characters. (Something that has obviously been incessantly discussed in the POTO community, I know.)

God I would have killed to see John Owen Jones as the Phantom.

See what I did there? Ahaha very lame, yeah.

*My* top five favorite portrayals of both “Christine” and “Erik/The Phantom” from Phantom of the Opera on stage.

Top 5 Christines (in no particular order and mostly based on voice because of Youtube - though partly based on acting as well….hence why Sarah Brightman isn’t in there):

1. Rachel Barrell

2. Rebecca Caine (her voice is just wow)

3. Claire Moore

4. Gina Beck

5. TOO HARD TO CHOOSE - gosh this is a lot harder than I thought it would be but then again Phantom’s been playing for almost thirty (DEAR GOD) years.

Top 5 Phantoms (in no particular order):

1. John Owen Jones

2. Ramin Karimloo

3. Gary Mauer

4. Hugh Panaro

5. aaand giving some credit to John Cudia because I saw him on Broadway and while he wasn’t my favorite, he was still my first Broadway Phantom.

It’s embarrassing too, haha. Bonus for you guys!

It was around the time that I was starting to get into Phantom of the Opera after watching the movie (I was roughly twelve years old) that I came across this interview with Gerard Butler on Youtube. The interview itself wasn’t very memorable, but the troll in the comments was.

This person commented saying something like, ‘Yeah, he [Gerard] used to have those facial scars and burns and stuff, but with the money from the movie he was able to get surgery and have it fixed and stuff’.

Worst part: I believe it for like, a day. That was it. Then I realized my stupidity and can really only laugh at it now because I had really tried to forget the face-palm fail of mine.

When did Ramin Karimloo turn 34 years old?!? I swear, the last time I checked, he was only thirty - maybe even twenty-nine. Have I arrived here in a time-machine, my God!

*Window opens randomly in the classroom*
Me: He's here, The Phantom of the Opera!
Teacher: Oh not again! Are you listening to what I am saying?
Me: Teacher, I hear you, Speak, I listen...
Teacher: Are you taking notes?
Me: Far too many notes for my taste...
Teacher: That's it, you are going to the principal.
Me: Teacher, my soul was weak, forgive me...
