Oh right, you're that...theatre girl

Phantom, Wicked, Les Mis
Mezzo Belt
Cliche but...theatre is my life

operafantomet:

"…hide your face to the world will never find you…."

This is one of the most touching moments of the show, if done right. It shows a broken down and almost childlike Phantom left alone in his lair, and it ties the opening and ending scene together. It shows him after he’s made the biggest sacrifice of his life. 

I’ve seen this moment done very differently - some mimicking the movements of the monkey, some covering its face like his own half mask, some just breaking down and sobbing beside it, some trying to keep an ounce of dignity. There are so many ways of playing this specific moment. Here’s some of my favourite photos of it:

1. Ramin Karimloo, West End.
2. Dave Willetts, UK tour.
3. Peter Jorde, Copenhagen.
4. Christian Müller, Essen.
5. Hartwig Rudolz, Hamburg. 
6. Juan Pablo Skrt, Buenos Aires.
7. Hugh Panaro, Broadway.

you know you’re in the musical theatre fandom when you listen to the same song 4 times in a row just so you can hear different people sing it.

Or when you listen to the same song 4 times in a row by the same person to compare the different times they sang the same song.

Today, I saw a performance of Rent done by a group of high schoolers. The man that sat next to me who made uncomfortable noises the first time Collins and Angel kissed was crying when he died. And that, my friends, is the power of musical theatre.
