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)
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.|
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
