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.

You're a master of comedy. You really are.

You are just a comic genius, you know that? "Dread Pirate Roberts Dance Troupe"? Now that is a phrase that belongs on a T-shirt. In fact, I think I shall make a DPRDT T-shirt...if that's okay with you. Wouldn't want to copyright-infringe. And, your Movies in 15 Minutes even affected me while I watched the film. The Masquerade scene began and all I could think of was my "Fine Costume Rentals of Buchapeste" icon from the Van Helsing in 15 Minutes. You rock.

Re: Heavens.

Hey, as long as you don't go selling a bunch for profit, knock yourself out. I've thought about printing up stuff at Cafe Press myself, but "Dread Pirate Roberts" is a Princess Bride quote, after all, and I don't really want to mess with Lloyd Webber's legal team, either.

Very funny!

One thing - the chandelier isn't supposed to fall during the Il Muto scene - it's supposed to fall after Christine and Raoul return to the stage and she plays the role and everyone bows - that's when it falls in the musical. Apparently they deleted that scene, but that's when it's supposed to fall.

I'm guessing they did that so that it could be part of the climax, instead of earlier.

To the cemetery, Snowflake! Away!

I'll have you know I scared the cat with my cackle.

LMFAO. I was in tears through most of this. I think it is my favorite yet. *goes to upload 4398234098 Phantom m15m icons to GJ with credit obviously*

God, I wish that LJ had the icon capacity that GJ has.

(And thanks. : )
