Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes

As promised: Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes. I'm still counting up the fundraising, but we'll have a final count soon. I'm already running late with the book manuscript, but this was a very quick write--it practically parodies itself, and it was fun, and a good palate cleanser.

ETA 4/02/05: Okay. I'm gonna try to be real clear about this. I really, really liked the movie. I liked the book. I have never seen the show, but I would probably like it, and I ended up really enjoying the music. I like the actors involved. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ME COMMENTS ABOUT MY "HATE" FOR THE MOVIE. The point of these parodies is "affectionate snark." The jokes are written with love. If I hated the movie, I wouldn't bother. If you think I'm not funny, that's one thing, but please don't leave me long screeds about how I didn't "understand" or "appreciate" the movie, because you're preaching to the choir. (Yes, I have received, and am still receiving, a lot of these. Two today alone, in fact.)

P.S. Please look up the difference between "heroin" and "heroine" before you complain about my "Heroine Addict" icons. It's a pun. It's supposed to be a positive thing. I'm not calling anyone a drug user. Thank you, and enjoy.

Oh, and since it always comes up: I never have a problem with anyone leaving comments. In fact, if you'd like, you can leave them in the comments for me to see. But please don't copy or repost the entire thing anywhere; excerpts and links are always fine, though.

ETA: Minor corrections have been made to dates and a couple of names.

Bwahahahahaaa!!! I do not suggest reading this while students are quietly working at their desks. It is awfully hard to suppress the laughter.

Sidenote: You should revise and add the part where Mdm. Giry bitch slaps Buquet!!!

But really, you totally rock!

Wherever It Is That the Dancers Hang Out

BUQUET THE STAGEHAND: …And in the book, he’s got a hole where his nose ought to be, and his hands are cold and he’s like a cadaver all over!

SOME DANCER: But what about in the movie?

BUQUET: In the movie? He’s got a terrible… third degree… SUNBURN!

THE DANCERS: *scream and faint dead away*

**30 straight minutes of hysterical laughing and giggling**

Okay, my boyfriend is now finally convinced that I'm crazy, but it's worth it.

Eleven pages of comments? I guess that equals fame. Deserved fame, this is brilliant from beginning to end. You picked up pretty much all the ripp-offs I saw (The black&white B&B film, Elephant men) plus some more.

This movie practically screams for parody: over-blown, full of idiosyncracies, but still oddly compelling.

Gods, this is hillarious. Thanks ever!

Chah :-] Speaking as a huge Phan, I was watching the movie and going "Any minute now, the chandelier is going to fall. And it's going to be awesome. Aaaaaaany minute now. Wait-wait for it..."

THE CHANDELIER: *does not fall*

Someone posted a link over at metaquotes, and I couldn't click it fast enough.

Thanks for the laughs, once again.

Damn, it would probably help if I had actually seen the movie, but no matter - this totally kicks ass.

Thank you THANK YOU!

I have to go home to finish the rest but I laughed out loud so much it actually made the movie's existance bearable. Thank you so much for this!
