Although it seems that Michael Crawford was very conspicuous by his absence when it came to the performances of the other Phantoms, especially with the Sarah Brightman performing.

I saw it, and must conclude I'm disappointed. I actually had high hopes, and brought a friend that aren'r into musicals because I thought POTO would at least be entertaining to anyone. I have seen it in London about ten years ago, and thought the reason I was disappointed back then was that it lacked energy due to its age.

Now, apart from the rather tacky screen set pieces, I thought everyone involved here did the best they could. The show is just rather dull. I'm glad I saw it, for the performances were very solid, and the scenes with Carlotta are very, very entertaining. It was also very interesting to see which solutions they had for performing a concert version of this very action-heavy play.

I agree!!! He was hilarious! Reminded me of my theatre professor!


I apologize! That was not Hugh Panaro! And thank God! Cause this guy was nasally and kinda bad and I remember Panaro being better.

It was some guy whose name looked German in the credits, but the exact name escapes me.

Which is unfortunate.

Post Re: 25th Anniversary
Can someone here please tell me - because I have not been able to get a definitive answer on this....

I know that they don't have a full set, and that some of the production values have been scaled back...

But do the performers actually move around the stage, and fully act out their parts like in a proper stage production?

Or is it just like with the "Les Mis" anniversary concerts where they just walk up to a microphone stand and sing outwards facing the audience?

I know it's too much to expect a duplication of the London production, but I'm hoping that the actors will at least be as mobile as with the "Chess: In Concert At The Albert Hall" DVD

Please can someone tell me what the deal is with the performance, do they actually move around in costume or is it just people walking up to a microphone stand?

It is fully acted! I went expecting something like the Les Mis anniversary, but it wasn't. I really enjoyed it and need the dvd to hurry up and be released... I wonder if my laptop can play region 2 dvds. :?
