Hi! New here
Just popping in to say hello! I've been a phan for 9 years now, since I saw Phantom play on tour in Vancouver, Canada back in 2006. It's my favourite musical, and I'm happy to be here where I can enthuse about it with people who appreciate it too, haha. I'm looking forward to chatting about it with you all! And all the various versions/adaptions of the story too, of course.

That's it for now; hope you guys are having a great day!

Hello and welcome to the site.
I myself have NEVER seen the musical but have watched (most) of the movies.
I fell in love with the 2004 version and been a member of this site for years now.
I am mostly found on the (role playing) side of things but if you have any questions please feel free to P.M me.

I hope to see you around.

I hope you get a chance to see the stage musical sometime. :)

Maybe one day. I have WATCHED the second one online and parts of the first stage one but....I'm one of those people who once see's and learns something there is NO other person for the role.

That's totally fair! I know what you mean. I think I'm the same way with Michael Crawford, who was the first Phantom I got really familiar with. He'll always be THE Phantom for me, for that reason as well as being the original (ALW-wise).

Hi I'm yasamine . I think I'm kinda obsessed with the phantom and my favorite versions are : leroux and kay's version and movies such as:the 2004,the 1990,the 1889 versions. I think it was a great story and what a pity that no one yet made a proper movie from leroux's book(sorry for wrong grammer and mabey spelling!)
Thank you for reading my friends and Its a pleasure being in this site

Hello and welcome to the site.
I have NEVER read the books I'm not really sure were things change but I LOVE the 2004 version and some others that I have read and written.
I hope to see you around the site and maybe hear some of your ideas.
I am a HUGE member on the R.P (role playing) side of things here.

Hope to see you round.

If you have any questions please feel free to P.M me I am always around.

Hi yasamine! Nice to meet you.

Heh, the more movies the better I think! I'd love to see more. Erik especially is such a complicated character, so it's really interesting to see all the different interpretations.

I'll see you around then! :smile:

I know what you mean by different versions sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but it's always fun to see. I love it when someone comes up with something TOTALLY new and you'd NEVER think of it but when you do it's like: how could I have missed that.

With one of my characters someone once said it was like a NEW version of the phantom and others said it was almost a rewrite of beauty and the beast... both I didn't see at first but now BOOM.
It's why I love writing so much.

Knight of Cydonia 08-06-2015 12:54 PM

Exactly! And I agree on whether or not the movie (or whatever the medium is) is good or not, it's still a lot of fun to see a different portrayal or approach. It can definitely be quite the eye-opener.

That's really neat. I'm glad you enjoy writing so much!
