From one of your many Phantom phans! :D
Having only been recently introduced to the
character of Erik (the Phantom), I found it
to be an extraordinary story that shook me
to my roots. I'd of course heard of the
1925 silent movie starring the great Lon
Chaney as The Phantom of the Opera, based
on the 1910 Gaston Leroux novel, Le Fantôme
de l'Opéra. The story that struck me, however,
was the 2004 version starring Gerard Butler,
Emmy Rossum, Patrick Wilson, Jennifer
Ellison, & Miranda Richardson - directed by
Joel Schumacher, with an outstanding score
with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and
lyrics by Charles Hart.
I like musicals when they are well done.
IMO, this had everything I look for in a tale
well told, & then some.
