Has anyone ever seen the Phantom of the Opera?? I have seen it once, and fell in love with it , a few years ago, my mom took me. I thought it came back every 2 years, but I waited and waited and it seemed like I missed one or something.. Well, tonight I am looking on ticketmaster, and what is coming back to Boston? THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!!!!!!! LETS TALK ABOUT HOW EXCITED I AM AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol just thought id CHER!
Yep 2X for me too here in NYC..I am a huge Broadway buff as it is..and yea that one ROCKED! Soon we got Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays..we really love him..we met him yrs back when he did stand up at Queensborough college here in NY (was only $5 then!)and he played over 2 hrs and was fantastic! Nicest guy ever too! We also got for Good Vibrations last wk..the new Beach Boys one..should be good!

That's great that you will get to see it again! I love Andrew Lloyd Webber! I saw Phantom several months after it opened on Broadway. The entire original cast was still in the show. It is one of my favorites Susan
Phantom was my obsession immediately before Cher... about two years prior to obsessing over her I saw Phantom of the Opera for the first time and was just mesmerized... I memorized the entire cast recording-- I was like 7 or 8 years old.
Nope he doesnt want to go LOL.. I actually think I am going with his sister, becaue his sister loves it and wants to go too so we are going together!! ...Shaun doesn't like stuff like that I guess, but we are going to see the Nutcracker Dec. 5 together!!!ooh Young love! lmao
I saw Nutcracker at Lincoln ctr one yr here in NY was reallllly nice:) Hey Alex I heard Bloomingdales now is running Phantom of the Oprah shirts to promote some upcoming movie of it or something? true?
I was reeally into Phantom when I was in elementary school. I've seen it 2 times at the Kennedy Center here in DC. The first time I went with just my dad and we had standing room only tickets - a daddy/daughter date! So cute! But what was even cuter was that my daddy built me a take-apart and assemble stool that he could ut together when we got there for me to stand on so I could see better!
Then, after the show my dad wanted to walk around and "explore" alittle. When we came back down to the theater where the seats were we noticed that a group of people had reassembled and were sitting waiting for something. My dad was like, "Let's pretend we belong." It was like Friends of the Kennedy Center or something...but anyway, the actor who played Firmin came out and gave a talk, answered questions and signed autographs - so I ended up meeting him and having him sign my program! Thanks to my daddy, who I swore was going to get us in trouble!
Then, we left the Kennedy Center and were driving home and we passed this woman walking and I said to me dad, "She looks just like Madame Giry." Well, we made a wrong turn and had to go back that way and she was still walking, so my dad pulled off to the side of the road and we accosted the poor woman! lol She was actually very surprised I recognized her without her stage makeup on and I think was very flattered too. She also signed my program.
About a year later my mom and dad took one of my younger sisters and I to see it again at the Kennedy Center - but this time we sat and had great seats. No meeting any cast members afterwards that time though.
isn't it adorable how her expressions are practically the same!
