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.

Bwaha! Brilliant! *fangirls*

FANFIC WRITERS: Did someone say SLASH?

Love it! Love! It!

Oh, Gods. I was going to avoid this movie as if it were something to be avoided. Now, though ... it sounds laughably delightful, and not at all like the stage version.

Laughably delightful pretty much describes it. Just take enough cleenex to muffly your hysteric laughter, because you'll recognize every single joke.

My only knowledge of Phantom comes from you, that Night Court episode, or Terry Pratchett's Maskerade.

Didn't stop me from waking up my roommate laughing. Hey, it's 12:40, she should have been up anyway.

Terry Pratchett did a Phantom of the Opera thing?!

I've seen the show onstage a couple of time (in Toronto), but I haven't seen the movie yet -- because my town is apparently too provincial. This is hilarious!

Oh man, that was awesome. :)

[Raoul rides up, leaps off his white charger, and tosses his hair urgently.]

He was much more interesting in this than he was in the movie.

A RAT: Hey, baby.

You are superb; you are superlatively superb. I can't wait for the book, either. And now I have to go see this silly film and yell things like "NO YOU MORONS, BUQUET WAS FOUND BETWEEN A FLAT AND A SET PIECE FROM LE ROI DE LAHORE, AND ALL AROUND HIM WAS A SOUND LIKE THE SINGING OF THE DEAD, BITCHES!" And then get kicked out of the theater in righteous dudgeon.
