Guest Ghoul


I’m helping out with this:

So I went through the files and found an interesting thing:

The program from the Broadway Play

And the inside looked interesting. The actor who played ‘Benson’ on tv- Robert Guillaume, played ‘The Phantom’ at one time (not the phantom seen back in 1992). That phantom is spooktacular!

And a clipping from the local paper when they were setting up the theater for the show in Philadelphia. I heard that the director, Hal Prince was very close to the theater goers that night!

Look where I found the mistress of this blog, partying over at Pea’s Corner! My oh my! I heard she was dipping into the hard cider!

  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, *screams in front of my monitor and cheers of delight* I LOVE this story, I love everything about it!!! In fact, I named our son Erik, from the Phantom. Wonderful, just one wonderful show n tell. If at any time you get tired of it or want to throw this out….think of me sitting here who has never had the privilege of seeing the Broadway Play!! [color me soooo jealous]

    My Show n Tell is shared. Come by if you can. And I added a comment link right below the end of my show n tell today, since it’s such a huge blog for Halloween. Gifts galore for all! If you stop by!!!

  2. I remember the first time I heard Robert Guiallome (sp?) sing! I was blown away! I was used to him being the sarcastic butler and didn’t realize the voice he had! Yowza! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love Phantom, so much so that i saw it 4 times. lol! And I was lucky enough to see it with Robert Gillaume as well.
    I hope you have a fantastic day and thanks for sharing!

  4. Happy Halloween dear Dianne:-) I’m so glad you were able to come by my Halloween Bash…hmmmm…I had to replenish the hard cider, wonder why??? hehe

    My boys went to see the play of Phantom of the Opera in Toronto with their class when they were in their teens and they both said how absolutely fantastic it was. I’ve only ever seen a couple of the movie versions…loved both!! xoxo

  5. I’ve never seen the Phantom of the Opera. Wish I could :). The ragdoll shot of you is awesome! Thanks for sharing with us today. I always look forward to Show and Tell :). Please feel free to visit my blog anytime.

  6. What a lovely treasure! I have never seen the Phantom of the Opera, just the movie and of course, I’ve listened to the CD over and over again. :0)
