2012-2013 Season,  Phantom of the Opera

Phantom Fan-Fare

by Nicholas Sheets, dramaturg

As the production comes closer, I thought it might be fun to see some of the fanfare that comes with The Phantom of the Opera. For example, the video below (which I think is edited pretty well):

There is no question that a musical which has gained the hearts of literally tens of millions of its viewers around the globe is going to have its own set of fanatic fans, let alone toys. Take the following for example:

As you can tell, there are lots of different avenues for fans to bring The Phantom of the Opera into their lives.

I’m sure there are even some of our own visitors to this website who are in love with everything “Phantom.” If you are, we’d love to hear what you like about Phantom and maybe any neat things you own that relate to the POTO. Leave your comments below.

    I have the Red Death music box, the CVS plushie, 9 copies of the original novel (and strong opinions about different translations), a few t-shirts, and various cast recordings. (The Vienna cast album is my favorite of all of the ones I’ve ever heard, which is almost all of them). I’ve seen most all of the film adaptations, heard all the musicals (there are at least five I can name off the top of my head), read the most popular fan literature, written fanfic, drawn pictures, and… yeah, Phantom’s been a hardcore obsession for over a decade. I’ve got it bad.

    I’m not so much a fan of the musical anymore, but I can appreciate it. The book is where it’s at!
