    ...and I Don't Even Particularly Like It.

    I saw it twice, in San Francisco and in Salt Lake.  Neither production was especially good, the the one in SF did explore the drooling speech impediment dimension of being a disfigured maniac.

    I Have

    I have seen the newer version which I couldn't stand at all. And I've seen the old black and white version. I'd have to say that I prefer the older version way more! The new one just didn't stick to the book enough...and I dunno the singing in my opinion was awful.

    The Phantom of the Opera

    Fantastic Book!
