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.

*snuggles her precious Vicomte* I love this. Carlotta as Boobzilla...bwahahaha! Okay, did anyone else yell out, "Oh my God, look at the size of that cock!" when Andre came out in his rooster costume?

Dread Pirate Roberts dancers...*applause* Very nice!

Yeah, just so you know, I read this in its entirety *BEFORE* seeing the movie. And during the OMGDRAMATICPASSIONDONJUANWTF scene, when the rest of the audience was watching raptly and silently, I was trying to control my hysterical laughter at the Dread Pirate Roberts Corps du Ballet. XD

Really, you can't blame that on me, because my mother and I were laughing through the DPR Squad without the benefit of anyone having called it that yet. ; )

THE PHANTOM: Christine? You came back?

CHRISTINE: I just wanted to give you the ring. You know. As a token. Of my eternal… affection. Yeah. “Affection.” And my phone number. And my forwarding address.

I've never seen the play, so I gasped when the Phantom turned around and Christine was there, with the trembling underlip of repressed lust. And then-- she gave back the ring. Heh.

Brilliant, as always!

Love love love love love it!

Nice to know there are others out there who have also read the book (and in many ways prefer it, gotta love the Victoria/Edwardian imagery). This was my favourite bit:

"[Christine deploys her collapsible bodice, leaving her shoulders completely bare.]"

Which fits that scene sooooo well. *giggle*

I loved this!!

I love this so much!! Though I enjoyed the movie and the play. But during the under water scene I kept thinking of Finding Nemo and dory saying "Escapee- hey this kind of looks like escape!" lol. I have no idea why but what he turns under water looks like the thing Dory reads lol.

That was HILARIOUS. And really, a quite fitting summary. I have a question. My brother would like to do this for his drama course's variety show, and he wants your permission. Is that okay with you?
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: January 14th, 2005 03:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Only if 1) the script is credited to Cleolinda Jones where necessary and 2) you send me a tape of the performance, because that's frickin' awesome. Dude!

I have never laughed harder in my life. Thank you for your great post!

...So I wasn't the only one noticing how the Phantom's scarring magically becomes so much worse between her taking off his mask for the first time, and her taking off his mask onstage.

That was so funny. I'm sure everyone's wondering about the hysterical laughter and shouts of "Preening arm!" and "To arms!" coming from my room.
