Do you mean Sandra Joseph? She's the prinicpal Christine on Broadway and Julie Hanson is the alternate. I wish it were the other way around though ;)

Oh I'm sorry. I got the last names confused. I meant Sandra Joseph. But isn't Sandra Joseph good too? That is what I have heard. Have you seen both women perform? I am so jealous of people who have seen more than one performance of it! I am just dying to see it on stage!!

I think she's pretty naive about the whole Phantom being an Angel thing..but that's just my opinion.
One thing that really annoys me is that Christine, after she faints when she sees her statue/image in the Phantoms cave, still manages to point her toes whilst out cold :D How many people d'you think remember to point their toes whilst they faint...*raises eyebrow*

Some say Christine is too stupid and wishy-washy to be deserving of the Phantom's love. What I ask is this: what would you do in her place? Two guys are after you, one whom you've had a huge crush on since you were fifteen, the other who writes operas for you, teaches you to sing, kills for you in hopes of somehow making you love him. What would you do? I'll tell you something, I wouldn't know what to do. Loving two people at once isn't hard -- it's happened to me. I identify with Christine, as I was once in her shoes.

I wouldn't say that Christine was the bit stupid at all. She was a very intelligent girl but she was caught between two worlds and she couldn't decide between each. Keep in mind, her character is supposed to be only 16 or so... and teenage emotions can get in the way many times. ;)

Christine seemed naive, not stupid. She grew up a lot during the movie, and after the Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again scene, she didn't need her Angel as much as she did before. She let her father go. I think that is one of the things that scared her before PONR, and what allowed her to let herself go in Erik's arms during PONR. Before that, he had still been her angel and untouchable. Once she said goodbye to her father, he became a man in her eyes. That also shed her of some of innocence. What she felt was not child's play.

Christine was truly a good person who got confused between her childhood sweetheart and the man who had rescued her from a lonely youth. Somewhere between the graveyard scene and PONR, she let go of the childlike purity and stepped into womanhood, only to have the choice that could ruin her life thown at her before she could fully accept that.

She is naive, but that isn't neccesarily a bad thing. But I do think that she is a darker character then many think. As many have said, she does grow during the story, and in many ways th entire story is the story of her growth into maturity. But of course there are other aspects to the story as well...

I generally like Christine, but occasionally (particularly in Kay's novel) I feel a strong urge to shake her. Such as when she betrays Erik (in both Leroux's and Kay's work) by deciding that she isn't going to tell him what her choice (Wretched Boy or Angel?) is. She has chosen to stay with this man for days on end alone in his home, and he has never layed a finger on her. Can't she trust and respect him enough to at least let him know what her decision is?! Of course, she is young . . . and Erik is a singularly confusing person. But still . . . if she could have just trusted him!

I agree with you, Zelda. She's torn between two men, both ready to kill each other for her love. It isn't flip-of-the-coin decision, and the pressure is all on her.

I feel Christine is very spiritual and a dreamer to the point of not always having the strongest hold on reality as we know it, but that's what I love about her. I also got the impression that she does have strength, but, in some versions, due to the dependant nature of her upbringing, she doesn't always realise it, which is why she'd look for protection or a decision to be taken out of her hands.
