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 love these 15-minute things. Absolutely love them. Seriously, I see movies for the sole purpose of being able to read your summaries :)

Just wanted to tell you that :D

Oh, and this rocked :)

One more in your HUGE LIST OF COMMENTS telling you how much you have made my day.

*sniffle* It's better than the movie! (And I liked the movie a lot!) Plus, I didn't have to pay fifteen bucks for admission and popcorn!

I haven't seen it yet (though I've seen it on stage when it was first performed in London).

I know what to expect now!

Okay, I don't know if you even read these comments anymore, but I really must share this story from today...

I was playing a game of Latin derivatives with my friends (uh, yes, this is what we do for fun. Why do you ask?)

Our teacher asked us to define "halcyon."

It just slipped out...


All: *stare*

My friend: "See, Carolyn, this is one of those things that you think but don't say.

I'm sure that everything that might have been said has been said, but oh, sweet charity, I love you. This stuff may write itself - I mean, a friend and I mocked the whole "just how disfigured IS he?" question afterward, and I was one of the 'phans' that thought "WTF CHANDELIER???" when it failed to fall at the appropriate time, and "she's in pink, with no mask, and she's swinging her 'secret' engagement ring all over the room - the hell?" - but that's as far as it got. You've taken the stuff that writes itself and made it into an art. You're awesome. Every moment of it is beautiful, of course, but "dread pirate roberts (whatever)" is definitely a stroke of genius amongst a big fat painting by you that's full of strokes of genius. Or something. Please, please, see more movies. Lots more.

Hee, thanks. Glad you liked it. I'm kind of hung up on the book right now, but once the manuscript is finished, I should be able to post some more online. : )
