Re: Souvenir brochures

Post  operafantomet on Sat Mar 31, 2012 2:10 pm

I got the current (that is, the November 2011) brochure from the West End production today. It's basically identical to the previous one, but I wanted it still.

THE GOOD:
The current one has a rather rare "Passarino and Meg as gypsy girl" photo, and it's lovely. It also has a new greeting from Hal Prince, dated October 2011 (25th anniversary in date, but not really in content). There's a gorgeous two-page spread of the Sylphides (thanks a lot, now that I'm almost done with the costume... Laughing ), and there's a stunning Prima Donna photo of Wendy Ferguson. I also love that the use the mirror bride frame for the cast list - but that is not unique to this brochure. And I like that Scott Davies still has the photo with his name written underneath.

THE BAD:
I still think Michael Le Poer Trench should not be the production's main photographer. The photos are clear and all, but they are not particularly atmospheric. There are some odd facial expressions captured, and they look flat overall. Flat in either light or... I dunno. Bring back Catherine Ashmore, who captured magic in the Gina Beck/Karimloo/Shannon brochures.

THE UGLY:
Almost no photoshopping? Whaaaat??!?? Laughing Oh, and purple cover. Ugh.

Could I get one of each, please? Smile

SweetChristine, you should be able to order the new South African brochure from the link PhantomsGhost provided, or rather through the contact info on the site, here: http://www.phantomsa.co.za/contact-us.asp

I *think* they have both the old 2004 one and the new 2012 one in stock. They used the old one for their stop in Cape Town in 2011, while they got a brand new one for the Johannesburg season (which is a lot longer). Ask them to be sure.

I have the 2004, I want the new one.

Thank you, I sent one email a month ago or so, but no answer. I try it again about the contact.

They are hard to contact. If you can't in touch with them through the actual South Africa POTO website, try emailing Playbill Australia. They are the company handling the merchandise for the South African production. I emailed them and got a response immediately. They are very helpful!


Thank you I sent an email to Playbill Australia. I hope I get soon my brochure. I want it so.

I had no idea Playbill.com.au was handling the SA merchandise. I just put an order in to them for some LND merchandise I was interested in.

Just emailed them, so hopefully my LND order hasn't shipped, yet and they could add the items on. Smile

What people don't realize about the South African production is that it's a part of the World Tour. The World Tour is handled by RUG Asia Pacific, whose main office is in Sydney in Australia. Therefore the World Tour (and S.A.) use Australian sets and costumes, as well as merchandise system.

The South African leg has a local producer in Pieter Toerinen, but they're still within the World Tour "family". So it's not surprising their merchandise is produced by the same handling the mrechandise for the rest of the WT. The same was the case in 2004.

SweetChristine, I'm glad you heard back from them. 't is a nice brochure.

1997 Japanese POTO Brochure

Post  Devon on Mon Apr 02, 2012 10:15 pm

I found this listing on Ebay, a 1997 POTO brochure from Japan. I don't have it but alas, don't have the funds right now....I hope someone on the board here grabs it!

Re: Souvenir brochures

Post  operafantomet on Tue Apr 03, 2012 6:32 pm

I live in a tiny shoebox of an apartment, and yet I've managed to loose "The Complete Phantom" book somewhere within my tiny shoebox. I've been looking for it for weeks, and it's gone. I have no idea how that is possible.

Anyway, I gave in and bought a new one. It's fairly easy to get a cheap copy on eBay. To my big surprise the version I bought was a bit different from the one I already have had. Not in content, as far as I can tell, but in print. The pages are glossier, the cover softer (not that I had the hardcover version, but it was stiffer than this one). And I THINK the pages here are a tad smaller, but it might be my mind tricking me. Whereas the other was published by Pavillion, this one is by Henry Holt and Company/Owl Books.

As a bonus, I got two original Toronto cast brochures with it, along with a "Music & Magic of Andrew Lloyd Webber" CD special. I haven't checked out the latter, it doesn't look all that intriguing to be honest. But a good deal overall, especially since one of the Toronto brochures might be signed by Patti Cohenour (that's what I've interpreted it as so far, but I might be wrong...).

Yup! That was me, indeed. It's been ages since I've bought a Phantom program, but might try to pick up the habit again - specifically re international ones.

On a related note, does anyone know if they've redone the Broadway Program lately, particularly in light of the 10,000 performances and all? Or is it still the 'Longest Running Show on Broadway' oversized program they put out way back when Howard was still in the role? Thanks.

I'd love to have them, but holy crap it costs almost as much as the programs just to get them shipped to the US! O_o

Any rare pictures or good quality of lesser known ones is always of interest. Plus of course costume and set design! Must get that book soon, I just didn't want to pay overprice for that box set with DVDs and CDs I didn't want.

I'm a happy camper today. I scored the 1995 "Far East Tour" Singapore brochure. I've been looking for it for ages! The cast is Peter Karrie, LuAnn Aronson/Sylvia Rhyne and John Ruess:

Most of the photos in it are ones we have seen, except for a few which I will scan soon. However I am sad to say they use the same libretto that's in the old book. Shame, I was hoping at least for the 25th RAH Libretto.

Alright, I've decided that I want to order the Joback/Escobar/Killian program. Has some great images and it's been a long time since I've bought a new London program (RAH doesn't count, lol) Is the one on the official shop ( http://shop.thephantomoftheopera.com/Store/DII-2852-8-the+phantom+of+the+opera+london+brochures.html ) that one? Or are people ordering it from elsewhere? Thanks. Smile

ETA: Also, is it possible to still get/request more recent London programs, such as Ramin and JOJ? (Yes, it *has* been that long since I've gotten a London program) Is there even an Earl Carpenter program? Just trying to cover my bases. Smile

I ordered the brochure/program from the official shop a couple of weeks ago thinking that it would be the current one, but it was the November 2011 one featuring JOJ/Earl so i returned it as i have that one already. I checked on Dress Circle's site aswell and they only seem to have the Nov '11 one aswell. I really want the current one, but luckily i'm seeing the show next week so will get one then, yay Very Happy

So couple questions here:

First, if I order the London brochure from either Dress Circle OR the official Phantom website, will I be getting the November, 2011 one??
Second, does anyone know where I can buy the brochure for the new UK Tour??? I have emailed a couple of the theaters it has traveled to and they do not sell via mail, they said they sell only to those who attend the show.

HELP!!

You need to contact Dewnyters directly -- their details can be found at the bottom of the last page of all the UK brochures.

I did have a spare but gave it to Josefine...

It's also worth emailing Dress Circle and asking them to stock it. They usually do if there's a demand.

Got the 1995 Singapore brochure in the mail today.

It made my Phantom heart happy. Partly because I've been looking for it for AGES, and partly because it's a beauty. It's one of those interesting all-in-one brochures, with articles, history of Phantom, synopsis, bios and headshots, full cast list PLUS lots of productions pictures. It's what you get if you combine English programmes and American Playbills with the standard souvenir brochures.

The front is white with silver logo, and it has "Kallang Theatre" printed in black. It's a crossover of the Toronto brochures and the later World Tour ones. no wonder, since this in large was a Canadian production but in charge of RUG Pacific rather than Livent.

Almost all of the pictures has been posted online before, with rather epic photos of Peter Karrie, Sylvia Rhyne/Luann Aronson and John Ruess. But the two-spread Masquerade one was one I had never seen before! I'll do a scan when light and time permits it.

All in all, a collector's piece indeed. I'm a happy camper.

Japan POTO Brochure

Post  Devon on Wed Jul 18, 2012 4:43 am

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you all know there's a Japanese POTO souvenir brochure that's been listed on Ebay. I have this brochure, it's the first Japanese brochure I ever bought. Nice pictures, not a lot of them compared to others but it's still a keeper. :-)

Finally got the UK tour brochure last night at my second time this time in Leeds, it's quite nice, very similar to the London fare but I hate the Phantom's new styling, I hated it anyway but to have it in fill glorious print is just wrong lol.
