And all this time, I just thought it was the power of love pushing them along!
They always look so striking together <3
P.S. This is what I always thought Leroux’s Christine might look like.
I was just thinking this, but when you really think about it, Christine was 16 according to Leroux’s novel. SIX-FUCKING-TEEN. I mean, how many of us were functioning at that age? We were just coming out of our awkward pubescent years, and here is this girl, suddenly becoming a prima donna, pushing away Carlotta, twice her age and with much more experience.
Then she has this angel who is three times her age confusing her newfound sexuality along with a young man from her past, and we’re all looking at her like, “come on Christine, pick the Phantom,” but dammit guys, she was fucking 16. I couldn’t even decide what style of clothing I wanted to wear when I was 16.
A really great story about Erik and an OC. <3
It actually wasn’t HORRIBLE. He did know the words to Music of the Night, but they cut it in a way that was so weird. Thankfully Howard fixed himself fairly quickly and put on a great performance.
That said, I still think it would have said a lot for Phantom if Peter and Samantha had sung live. As Neil Patrick Harris said in the beginning of the show about Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, “you don’t need close ups to tell we’re singing live.” I think Phantom should have stayed with that, even though that is usually a pre-recorded track. Just for the sake of the show, they could have spared one live performance.
Either that, or given Peter and Sam some lip syncing tips. I know this is an unpopular opinion, unfollow me all your want. :P
Way to use the recorded track. -_-
I was listening to music on my iPod on shuffle at work when this happened. I hope it gives you the same “wtf” look that it gave me. lol.
Just bought this music box for $10 at the church flea market <3 She’s missing an arm, but it works and is otherwise beautiful. My 6th one.
