I saw the musical version a few years ago and was blown away with how good it was. Still havent seen the film version yet

Phantom is what got me interested in theatre and musicals to begin with, so I owe it a great debt of gratitude. I've seen the play live in Chicago at the opera house there, but I have to admit the casting wasn't great...our Phantom had a bit of a gay lisp to his speech which doesn't bode well for being intimidating. But the stage effects were fantastic, and the music is phenominal. I was worried when they came out with the movie, because I thought that they would kill it...but I was pleasantly surprised by how well they did the movie. I actually liked the casting of Gerard Butler as the Phantom, even though he's not trained as a singer and sang it alittle more rock and rollish than purists like. I personally think it should be sung that way. Plus, he was very attractive to look at....:-)
I've also see the Paris Opera House where the story was based on when I went to study abroad in Paris in the summer of 2004....we didn't have time to go inside, but I have TONS of pics of the outside.
If you are interested in seeing the show, check out the official show website here:

PS. If you like Phantom (the powerful music, full of emotion and all that stuff) check out the soundtrack for Les Miserables!

I've only heard the soundtrack from the play because my mum has it on cd. I love the music. I used to listen to the first song way too much when I was little.

I've seen both play and movie, and the play deffinately beats the movie, though the movie is awsome. Freddie would be the hottest phantom ever.

And then I think Roger should play Christine. They can reach pretty much the same notes, and Roger is way better looking than she is!
