AWESOME: Lisa of Blue and Shoe and Phantom of the OPERA

THIS POST is especially for
Princess Lisa, 
who was NOT HAPPY
about her bathroom mirrors mocking her!
Part of her BRILLIANTLY comical...
and REAL post included this line:
" I'm busy busting mirrors."
In fact, the post TITLE was: 
Part of my comment:
"So WHY when I read this do I envision you 
going through smashing mirrors like
 the PHANTOM at the end of Phantom of the Opera? 
LOL! And to the music, of course!" 
My comment referred to the Phantom smashing the mirrors...
SO, HERE is the VISUAL of that!!
(Move the timeline to 8:30... 
Less than a minute to view just what is discussed here!)

Now for those of you that aren't aware,
Phantom of the Opera
is one of my all-time FAVES!
Something about it mesmerized me! 
The music is AMAZINGLY
Some will get into the BIG DEBATE
over the stage version vs. the movie...
I saw the production on Broadway

AND I own the movie!

Oh to play Christine!!
Emmy Rossum was quite the lucky lady!

Patrick Wilson 
Yeah... POOR GIRL!! NOT!

Sorry, I'm not helping the stage/movie debate...
They each have their own special qualities and wonders to offer.
So to all you debaters...
Just appreciate them individually and quit comparing!
If you haven't seen the play or movie...
But I highly recommend you watch the WHOLE THING!!
If you read the book... you DON'T know THIS STORY!!
Like so many books recreated for the stage or movie,
they are DIFFERENT!!
Again, appreciate the book as one story...
appreciate the movie in itself!
This is the same for Pride and Prejudice 
(which I adore the movie AND the mini series of...)
Les Miserables (MOVIE and STAGE... AWESOME!), 
and The Count of Monte Cristo!
HAHA!! A few more of my all-time faves!!
If you are not familiar with the hilarious but REAL sarcasm that IS

I don't know how many times I have seen Phantom, but I still love it. And I don't care how that makes me look. I totally dig it.

Liked the movie too. (The newest one. Isn't there like 4?)

Hi - I love, LOVE the Phantom movie! And, I saw the play in Vegas. Both are/were incredible! I put the movie in and watch at least once a year.

I prefer the stage musical, but I do enjoy both. This is still my favorite musical, I do believe. Thanks for posting. I agree that the movie has its own place and Emily Rossum is a fantastic Christine.

actually... the newest movie is the ONLY time in recorded history that I have actually preferred a film version over a stage version...

of course, that might be because when you sit too close to the stage (second row = too close) then the backstage distractions are... well... distracting.

Okay, so HOW IN THE HELL DID I MISS THIS INCREDIBLY FANTASTIC PRINCESS LISA POST? I have no idea. You must have wondered how I could be such a snob, not even commenting. YOU, my dear, are a delight. And I appreciate you praising me and my blog. :):):) That's me, smiling, having totally forgotten my three tiered midsection. :)

PS~TOTALLY in love with all of the same films/books/plays you mentioned. And I wanted to buy Sterling a mask when I saw Phantom in the theater. Nothing wrong with a little role play, right? Except for then I'd need to look like Christine in that white negligee, and clearly, that is not happening. Unless...I get rid of the mirrors, and then, who's to say it's not true? (Close your eyes, Ster...use your imagination)
