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.

OH MY GOD, HE'S SLIGHTLY UNATTRACTIVE ON ONE SIDE! TO ARMS!Collapse )

I don't know if anyone has already brought this to your attention, but as to the confusion about the old lady at the public auction:

Since the woman is addressed as Madame Giry, she must be Momma Giry; Meg would have to be married to be a "madame" and thus wouldn't have the last name Giry anymore.

Sorry if this has already been said, just thought I'd give my input.
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: May 6th, 2005 02:31 am (UTC) (Link)
Actually, we had a long discussion about this--it's possible, if Meg never married, that they called her "Madame" out of respect for her advanced age. I've been told by people who bought the movie companion/script that it is supposed to be Meg, but it's a weird discrepancy, I admit.

I'm so sorry, I know this quote has been repeated very often, but......

"OMG! HE'S SLIGHTLY UNATTRACTIVE ON ONE SIDE!!!!!!!!! TO ARMS!!!!!!!"

*head explodes from laughing*

Sorry. That cracks me up every time. And now my sister is staring at me.

This is even better now that I own the DVD. I've been trying to explain your M15M version to my mom tonight (she's seen the stage production about four or five times, but this was her first time seeing the movie). I repeated the "my preening arm" comment and she nearly collapsed.
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: May 8th, 2005 01:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee!

(Tell your mom Happy Mother's Day for me, by the way. : )

Omg...that was like the funniest thing I have ever read. It reminded me of stuff that my cousin and I come up with. You are truly awesome. Seeing the movie than reading that = hours of laughing. Awesome.
