Democrat from Kentucky
We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

The Phantom Of The Opera Is #1 Tuesday, January 10, 2006

The ;musical, "Phantom of the Opera" by Andrew Lloyd Webber just became the longest running show in the history of Broadway. It surpassed Webber's other show, Cats. The original show starred Sarah Brightman (Webber's wife for a time) and Michael Crawford. Both were known in the theatre community but after Phantom, they became household name, especially Crawford.

The show first premiered in 1987 in London. I've seen the show three times, none on Broadway or London. The show falls into the "blockbuster" category much in the Star Wars or some of the other big movies. The show had great music, lavish sets and was based on the old story by Gaston LeRoux.

Theatre is a wonderful thing and this is one of the great shows.
