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.

I wrote my first ever Slash based on your m15m. Part one at least. Thanks for the inspiration.

Too funny! Even though I am a Phan from way back, this piece had me laughing so hard that I was crying! Kudos on such a hilarious bit!

Thanks so much! I was slightly disappointed by the movie (too theatrical, no effort to actually *translate* it to the screen... but that's off topic) but this made it all worth it! You're hilarious, now I can't stop saying HOR & I KEEL YOU!
(Have you considered doing "The Princess Bride")? *wink**wink*

What in the world could I possibly add to that movie, which is one of the greatest ever made? : )

FIRMIN: Nobody panic!
[There is a stampede, the gas lights on the chandelier explode, and the Opera House bursts into flame.]

haha I should totally be sleeping right now. A friend linked to this. Wonderfully hilarious. I'm absolutely terrified of seeing the movie because I'm afraid it will ruin everything I love about the musical. ALW has a horrible habit of ruining everything he creates.
Now I'm terrified of going to see it because I'm afraid I'm going to laugh through the entire thing. ^_^

XD I was linked her from a message board, but I have to say I found this spoof hilarious. Hahah, if I could, I'd try to get some people to record it as an audio clip. Truly genius! *bows in respect*
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: January 19th, 2005 06:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Actually, I'm working on recording it myself--I just don't have a lot of time right now, what with the book. But whatever I record will be posted in this community. : )

I hope it's okay that I post a few icons on my journal that have quotes from this. I'll link back to your journal and this post. Let me know if it's not okay ^_~

And AWESOME parody lmfao

oh, i love it! Phantom has been a favorite of mine for a good amount of time.

way to rail on old lady Giry, the Persian really should have been included in this.
