Hello all!

Thank you for your patience during the past months – as I mentioned earlier in the summer, I've been away from the online world a lot lately, and therefore haven't had the chance to update the group quite as often as usually. Have you had a good, musical summer so far? I sure have. I saw The Phantom of the Opera and Rocky the Musical in Hamburg. I was especially impressed by the latter. I haven't had that much fun in theatre in ages! A wonderfully entertaining musical.

Group member GuinevereToGwen asked me if I could share her new blog in the group journal. Sure I can! In the author's own words, the blog focuses on reviewing theatre performances and cast albums as well as sharing my favourite new musical theatre songs. Hope you enjoy reading Scripteditty!

That got me thinking – does Musical-fans have other members who blog about musicals? The admin at least counts as one: for the past five years, I've blogged about theatre at Some Superfluous Opinions. My most recent post is in Finnish, since I've been writing a special Finnish summer series, but I usually blog in English. Here's a review of aforementioned Rocky the Musical.

Any other bloggers in the group? Share links to your blogs in the comment section!

Lol sorry if this is random but can anyone suggest good musicals for me to get into?

Something similar to Phantom of The Opera (I like the dark, tragedy kind of musicals) 

I also enjoy musicals like Heahters, Avenue Q, and Legally Blonde. ;u; pls help me out

Let's see! Thinking of shows similar to Phantom, I would suggest two of my personal favourites, Jekyll & Hyde and the German musical Tanz der Vampire. There are full videos of both in Youtube: the original Broadway production of Jekyll and Hyde here and a production of Tanz der Vampire with English subtitles here…

Jekyll & Hyde has some plotholes, but the story is both dark and tragic and overall really fascinating. I also really enjoy the music. Tanz der Vampire, then, resembles Phantom especially closely – the story centers around a young woman who has two potential boyfriends: a naïve, nice and courageous student and a mysterious, undead gentleman... Tanz is a parody of vampire fiction, mixing humor and action with darker themes. During the first scenes, the show may seem light and humorous, but don't let that fool you – there's some real darkness hidden in this one. Plus the music is brilliant!

In case you want to take a sneak peek at the shows before watching the full videos, here are my favourite songs/scenes from both. – in this scene from Tanz der Vampire, the main female character Sarah tells her would-be boyfriend Alfred to leave her alone for a moment because she has gotten a gift from her other suitor, Count von Krolock. Trying on the beautiful red boots the Count has sent her, Sarah dreams of attending the Count's midnight ball. And (audio only) – Hyde's big solo Alive from Jekyll & Hyde. In this scene, Hyde has just been set free for the first time and he realizes what being alive really means. In this recording, the song is sung by the brilliant Anthony Warlow.

Hope you enjoy!

Thank you! The Tanz der Vampire and Jekyll and Hyde look wonderful~

(I mistook the girl in Tanz der Vampire as christine for a minute uhm)
Starlene Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Heh, yes, she does have some similarities to Christine – looks and otherwise... Hope you enjoy both shows, let me know what you think after you've found the time to watch them! :aww:

Susan Kay’s ‘Phantom’ Short Film Project

Hello all!
I just wanted to make a quick post here because I am making a series of short films based on Susan Kay’s Phantom novel, and I would love to hear other phans suggestions or ideas because I want to make this to the best standard I can. I also want to do the story justice as it is my all time favourite novel.

I am making the short film in 5 parts. This consists of:
1. Erik as a child - features Young Erik, Madeleine, Mlle. Perrault, Etienne
2. Erik as a prisoner/With Giovanni - features Young Erik, Javert, Giovanni, Luciana
3. Erik in Persia - features Erik, Nadir, maybe others
4. Erik and Christine - features Erik, Christine, Raoul, Meg, Madame Giry, Nadir
5. Erik’s death/Aftermath - Features Erik, Christine, Nadir, Raoul, Charles

Thoughts and suggestions very much appreciated. I would love to chat with some of you about it, and just Phantom in general as I really wish to make more Phantom friends! 

My tumblr for this project is lp-communication-interaction.t… and my facebook is… if you would like to contact me also. You can also reply to this comment or send me a note!

Thank you and have a great day! :)
