The Phantom of the Opera: Phan Faves

18 June 2015


In honour of last night's opening night of the new touring production of The Phantom of the Opera, here are my favorite performers of all time:
Brad Little & Lisa Vroman. Photo by: Joan Marcus.
The Phantom
1. Ron Bohmer - my first Phantom and what a voice!
2. Brad Little - my second Phantom and what a powerful presence!
3. Ramin Karimloo - 25th anniversary Phantom (DVD) with the best "Point of No Return".
4. Tim Martin Gleason - I had originally seen him as Raoul (opposite Brad Little) and found his Phantom to be the darkest portrayal yet.
5. Chris Mann - his money notes were strong and spot on but no scene/number in particular captivated me.
Sean MacLaughlin (LA, 2010)
Raoul
1. Victor Wallace - my first Raoul (u/s) and was everything I imagined - strong, gorgeous and voice like butter.
2. Sean MacLaughlin - he was the epitome of hero and his voice was so rich, strong and deep and stole the show from Tim Martin Gleason's Phantom. #TeamRaoul
3. Hadley Fraser - 25th anniversary (DVD); loved his "Why Have You Brought Me Here?"
4. Tim Martin Gleason
5. Storm Lineberger
Sierra Boggess as Christine.
Christine
1. Lisa Vroman - that voice! best "Poor Fool, He Makes Me Laugh"
2. Sandra Joseph - that spunkiness during Don Juan; and chemistry with future-husband Ron Bohmer was amazing.
3. Sierra Boggess - 25th anniversary (DVD); loved her farewell to the Phantom
4. Trista Maldovan
5. Katie Travis

Who are your PHAN favorites?
