Michael Crawford Thread

Post  Callie Daae on Fri Jun 04, 2010 7:41 pm

Here's the place for all us Michael fanatics to freely swoon over him.

Does anyone know what Michael is up to now? Last I heard he was in semi retirement and living in New Zealand.

I won't be swooning, but I will say that I'm a big fan of his portrayal of the Phantom Very Happy In terms of overall performance, his has been unequaled in my eyes since the stage show began.

Crawford is in New Zealand now?! Wow. That must be why my autograph took six months (people I know got theirs back faster). But, he is an amazing dude for signing my awesome picture. I hope he enjoyed my short but sweet letter.

I don't think it's him. His only picture is of 'Andrew and Me'. ... Really. He favours Andrew above everyone else in his life. Weird.

Ya that's what I thought too..... I'm sure if it really was him he would have more personal pictures and better info. It seriously takes a sick person to pretend to be someone.....

Whomever it is spelled Michael's birth name wrong. Dumbbell-Smith...There's only suppose to be one "b".

I would expect the real Michael would have links to the MCIFA and the various charities he supports.

Hehe, precious. While we're at it, how real is the Sarah Brightman one? I automatically assumed it is fake, but who knows.

Now that one is questionable. The picture that was chosen seems to be a random goofy one. Grainy, like a web cam. But then again, probably from a newspaper. That one is FAR MORE questionable than the Crawford one.

I'm suspicious of every single celebrity page I've come across. Very rarely are they legit.

I could probably find an answer to this by googling... But is Michael Crawford performing at all these days?

He hasn't been performing lately, I believe he's in semi retirement.

The man turned 68 in January. He's a perfectionist, and I'm sure his vocal cords and body don't hold up as well to his own standards as they once used to.

Michael Crawford is one of those people I wished would remain in the same physique and age for a very long time. Then I'd be able to see his Phantom. But that'd be so very selfish of me.

Yeah, it's a shame I wasn't born a generation earlier. Luckily, I did get to see him in concert at the peak of his fame and vocal prowess (1992 at Radio City), but I was only 7, and I wish I had more vivid memories of the actual concert and had been able to see him in Phantom a few years earlier.

Agrees, it scares the shit out of me that the original cast members are now grown ups and won't be around forever after all. And Crawford is one I want to keep going, keep performing, keep hanging around.

Me too, I wish he would do another US concert tour. But I know he loves playing Wii, so I think he's still in great shape. Smile

At a fan event a year ago, he talked about playing Wii---mostly the exercise games. He laughed at himself for working hard on the boxing and then being beaten by two women!

Based on photos taken this month when he visited two of the Sick Children's Trust houses (He's president), he's still in good shape, but he shows NO signs of wanting to work again. He has said several times if something really special came along, he could be interested, but I can't imagine what that would be. He spends several months of the year in New Zealand, sailing and doing what ever he pleases.

I heard that he also said that he broke his TV playing Wii as well.

Awesome to see him looking so good, but that didn't have anything about the Wii.

The only video of his talking at the fan event would be the property of the fan organization, and any member who put it up on youtube would quite probably be drummed out of the corps.

Oops... sorry. I wasn't sure which one you were talking about. The MCIFA events aren't usually recorded.

I feel awful, but I love watching the videos of people who can't hold the wii remote properly (use the strap people) toss their remote through their TV. Just picturing Crawford in his phantom rage do such a thing is hilarious.

Oh. Oh. Oh. I swoon quite freely over Michael - he's my all time favorite Phantom. Who can surpass his elegance, sensuality and overall gorgeousness? And what I love most of all is he was brave enough to let his Phantom knock your socks off by implication. He didn't have to be utterly obvious to make his impact.

Sigh......
