So Tumblr has been crazy with this in the last few weeks since Sierra Boggess has left the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera on September 6th. A rather short run, so to say: she did start only on May 14th…
I wasn’t going to write anything about this at first. But now, rumor has it Sierra Boggess has stated that her 2014 run in Broadway was going to be the last time she would play Christine.
Top 10 reasons for why Erik/Christine doesn’t work.
Yes, I know I was supposed to publish my Love Never Dies rant before, but… this is really to help me write it.
So, short story. Before coming on Fanfiction, I already knew that almost everyone on Earth were E/C shippers. But I was still shocked of seeing the ridiculous number of E/C authors, especially that there are very good ones among them. Now, I’m not being rude, it’s okay to like the E/C pairing (I guess…), but I’m just being really honest. I remember, when I entered the phandom, I was a mild...
I saw The Phantom of the Opera when I was 12, and I heard the Original London Cast Recording of Love Never Dies when I was 16. By then my life had gone through some MAJOR changes. For one thing my Dad died 2.75 months after I saw The Phantom of the Opera on stage (believe it or not) and my life was continuing to get worse, so my personality like the characters in "Love Never Dies" changed with life. What I'm trying to say is "Misery loves company" especially from close friends. When I was 13 I had read "The Phantom of Manhattan" so it was not a surprise to me when Christine died. :(!
I have to say Emmy Rossum was GREAT as Christine! I actually love both her and Sarah Brightman. Also, since Emmy did so well singing the POTO songs, I would love to see her make an album of ALW songs. I would especially LOVE to hear her sing, "Don't Cry for me Argentina," from "Evita." I think she would be a great choice for Eva Peron, if she ever does Broadway. Would anyone else like to hear her sing that? No haters, only fans post, please.
