The Phantom of the Opera, now in its 26th year on Broadway, will welcome former ‘LITTLE MERMAID’ co-stars Norm Lewis and Sierra Boggess to the cast on Monday, May 12, at the Majestic Theater. Lewis is already hard at work preparing for his new role, and ABC World News just featured him as its ‘Person of the Week’. Check out the interview below!
EVERYTHING THAT COMES OUT IS MAKING ME MORE AND MORE EXCITED!!!
"When it came time for the famous unmasking scene I did not have to act. What I mean by that is, Mr. Chaney never prepared for me his makeup for the Phantom. I knew it was very horrible and I could see the yellowish color of his skin behind his neck. It was very early in the shooting schedule, since we had to do all of his scenes first because he had other commitments.
He silently came onto the set and took his place at the organ. I later learned that he could not speak because of the makeup around his mouth. Well, all you have to do is look at the picture and you can see my reaction when I first saw what he had done to his face! But it wasn’t just his face. I will never forget the horrible rage that came from his eyes, and the cry that he let out just before he turned around seemed to come from all around the set. Not from him. It was almost inhuman.
(Mary Philbin, 1993).

Idk about you guys but I get super excited about birthdays! I particularly love knowing other ppl’s birthdays. So since phandom is a pretty small knit community and we all know each other for the most part, I thought we can have a birthday list!
How it works is that you reblog and add your own birthday to the calendar. The objective of this is get to know each other a bit more and wish ppl happy birthday and maybe tag them on their favorite things on their b-day. This is just for fun and I encourage everyone to participate :)

BUT WHY NOT
So, if ‘daroga’ actually means ‘liar’ in Farsi (not ‘chief of police’), and Erik called the Persian that to annoy him, does that make it a…
OH MY GOD STOP XD
Sometimes I think about how Erik has a wine cellar and I just picture him doing little wine tastings in his house and sometimes he pours a cup for someone else even though he’s alone. And sometimes he lightly sips on a glass while he composes or reads and he’s just so darn sophisticated and elegant.
Exactly my thoughts!
Aww…kind of cute :3
