Movie Info

This production, starring David Staller and Elizabeth Walsh, is not the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The Phantom of the Opera combines a romantically enticing book, which follows closely to the original novel, plus a bright musical score by Lawrence Rosen and Paul Schierhorn that ranges from pop to traditional musical-comedy styling. Thus, the Hirshfield Theater has created a dramatically new musical comedy. From the opening dream ballet depicting the young heroine, Christine, to her susceptibility to the mad Victorian Phantom (who oozes a sinister charm), Ken Kurtz's settings evoke all the mystery and color of this classic story of love and terror. From the Paris Opera House to the catacombs of the Phantom's Lair, "The Phantom of the Opera," filmed before a live audience, brings to life Gaston Leroux's 1911 classic novel like no other musical production in the history of stage and screen.

I think that this musical is closer to the book & Stallar & Walsh can mop the floor with GB & what's her face when it comes to singing

This movie is HILARIOUS. It's actually more true to the novel than the Webber musical is. I like to think of it as the 1989 version but with song? Yes. Except, the Phantom isn't played by Robert Englund and nobody dies graphically.
