With Valentine’s day around the corner, we decided to give the biggest, most romantic, and most thrilling stories in the spotlight. Love, lies, jealousy, cheating, people resorting to murder, violence, murder, and even magic…you name it. It’s on Broadway.
Tagged: The Phantom of the Opera
Every story has its knight in shiny armor. The prince that slays the dragon, and saves the princess, rushes the bad guy and gets the fair lady from the train tracks, the one that saves the day! Raoul saves Christine, Hamilton gets all the fame and power, people all over Oz love Glinda, Simba becomes king, Cady dates Aaron. The list goes on. We understand them and we love them, but what about the bad guys? Regina? Scar? Jafar? Aaron Burr? The Wizard? The General from “The Book of Mormon”? It is not uncommon to sympathize with some of them, and quite often to even love them.
If you haven’t heard about “The Phantom of the Opera” then you probably lived on some very distant planet, because it is widely known on the closer ones. The 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux has turned into a global phenomenon and a franchise of its own.
