People Who Can / Should Be in POTO  Post [1] »


Greetings once again! Here's a thread where you can speculate on who should play a role in POTO one day. You can also name actors who could have been in the show, but have passed away or are too old to play that role. Have fun and be creative -- every opinion counts!

For what it's worth, I think Michael Ball should play Erik on stage sometime soon. He definitely has what the role requires vocally, and from what I've seen, he's a pretty decent actor as well. He played Raoul on stage in London several years ago, so it would kind of be a "homecoming" for him. Plus, he's played roles with similar requirements, like Jean Valjean in Les Misérables and Count Fosco in The Woman in White.

I also think Christiane Noll (Emma in the original Broadway cast of Jekyll & Hyde) could make a great Christine. She's got a very pure, sweet voice, and from what I've heard, her acting is better than the J&H recording revealed. ^_^


It's wiser to be mad... in a world that's gone insane!

I would vote for Josh Groban and Antonio Banderas for the role of Erik. Actually, Josh could sing for Raoul I suppose. I simply think that he has such a lovely way of expressing emotions in songs.

I'll have to think further about others who might make for interesting casting.

Josh Groban's voice is purely AMAZING- I can agree with you there.

Antonio Banderas, though... I don't particularly like his voice. Maybe for a minor role, but...


EDIT: Hayley Westenra certainly has a voice that fits Christine. I have no idea if she can sing that high, but it certainly has the pure quality...

I think Antonio would have been good. Once you get passed the heavy accent, you realize he would have done well. I mean, he was in Evita, so we know he can sing.

And if she died her hair and grew it out, or wore a wig, Kristen Chenoweth could do the part of Christine.

...ZACK EFRON AS RAOUL!!!! No, not reeally..that's be weird...


Maybe...As much as I LOVE Orlano Bloom, I'd be curious to see how HE would fair as Raoul.

Possibly even Johnny Depp as Erik!!! Johnny Depp is..a little out there, and LOVES to do weird films and such. Erik is..whacked out, so Johnny could amke a good Erik.

As for Chrstine, I'd like to see a singer try it. Maybe Carrie Underwood? She looks like Chrstine-ish to me. Just MAYBE even Vannessa Annd Hudgens...I don't know?

Can Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp sing?

Zac Efron? As RAOUL? I can't believe you even suggest that, Sabrina! *gasp* I'm shocked. Raaoul is such a wonderful character and Zac would ruin the role!!

Okay, my little rant is over.

MArtina McBride could play Christine. That would be interesting.

Hmmm I think Kristen Chenoweth has the voice, but she's so small!

lol kidding

A Chrisitne in the future could be...ME! I'm kidding again don't worry!

Seriously though I think Andrea Bocelli would make a beautiful Phantom if they could work around him being blind and all...

Oh I agree about Bocelli. In fact, I was a staunch supporter of him being the Phantom until I heard that he was blind. There are too many pyrotechnics and trap doors involved for it to be safe.

But... How about Jose Cura?

Jose Cura would be AMAZING! He can sing, act, AND he's a voice instructer AND he's been in operas. This man is amazing, seriously. I think Nathan Gunn would also be good. He has that rich baritone voice, and he's opera trained.
