Ever since I was a kid, it’s one of my dreams to see this play (eksaherada but true). I am such a big fan (FOR YEAARS!) that when i knew Phantom will perform here in the Philippines, I did everything I can just to save money and buy that fucking
THOUGHTS!: (Please don’t judge me.)
*The stage design, costumes, visuals and the like…STUNNING! STUNNING! STUNNING!
*Jonathan Roxmouth (Phantom) is definitely not a disappointment. He blew me away! Incredible, seductive and powerful voice. His performance as the Phantom is so awesome. I fell in love with him ♥ (im running out of words.)
*Christine and Raoul were very good opera singers but i didnt feel the love between them. Their gestures were most of the time with force and when they sang “All i Ask of you” they lack “love touches”, for instance, soft touch on the cheeks, slow graceful movement and all. always with force, they look so hyper and over, unlike Sierra and Hadley’s version where they really seemed like theyre so in love.
*Christine’s exit in the last part where she returned the ring to the phantom is too dramatic. She made this sound “UGH!” and left running and crying with sounds.
*However, overall, i loved it! a dream come true indeed!! It actually made me cry. I was tearing up when the scene is where Phantom confessed his love to Christine and she revealed his face. I cried when the Phantom saw Christine and Raoul singing “All i ask of you”, i cried when the Phantom sung “Christine, i love you♫♪”
*Watching the play, i wished i can act and dance and sing like them. so jealous! hahahaha!
*And even though i’ve seen the play already, I’d still be watching it again in the future. This is absolutely one of the best musicals ever.
