On February 5th, 2010, I
attended a performance of The Phantom of the Opera at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center in Orlando, FL. I saw Tim Martin
Gleason , Marni Raab , and Sean MacLaughlin in the main roles. I was very impressed with Tim and Sean. Both of them were great
performers. I loved their voices. Sean reminded me a lot of Steve Barton's Raoul. I wonder if he's even been told he sounds
just like him?
The managers Andre and Firmin were so funny too. I couldn't stop laughing at them. Carlotta was great
as well. DC Anderson and Kim Stengel were the only ones that are still left in the tour that I saw back on September 24th,
2005. They are amazing!!
Tim's performance was wonderful too!! I loved his emotions as the Phantom. His performance
really touched me.
It was wonderful to have a great seat. I could actually see the actors' faces for a chance. Last
time, I was way up in the balcony. I could see the chandelier come up and down. It was amazing to be that near to the stage.
My friend Andrea and I were invited backstage after the show was over. DC Anderson invited us backstage. I got
to meet him and Kim Stengel. DC showed us all around the backstage area. I even touched the chandelier. I didn't hurt it at
all. :p It was so heavy! I couldn't believe how heavy it was. We also got to see all of the costumes and props. I saw Christine's
Point of no Return dress. I touched it as well. It was amazing!!!:) I even saw the Monkey too!!
February 5th was a
wonderful night!! I won't ever forgot it! Thank you Phantom US Tour!!
