I don't like that Times Square billboard much more, if any more, than the one we all hate (I also don't see a face under the mask). I wonder also why the ad is among the masses of billboards and no longer on top of that building.

Nor me, but at least it's one step better than that Ken doll face. I really don't like the lettering either. All they needed to do was update the traditional lettering as they did in Vegas and London by making it a bit more metallic and 3D...not creating something worse.

I do hope that when we celebrate Phantom's 23rd year on Broadway this stupid new logo for the States will have been withdrawn FOR GOOD (and replaced with something up to scratch).

Two landmarks within days of one another: the US tour just celebrated its 7000th performance! Go tour cast! *confetti*

Also, this is what I call a cake:


Yoinked from Kyle Barisich's (public) Twitter.

Why can't the Broadway production get this person to make their landmark cakes??

In other US tour news, Trista Moldovan is currently on leave rehearsing for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, and apparently Marni Raab is filling in. This article says so, anyway. I thought Marni was the alternate on Broadway now; anyone know who the alternate is right now if it's not her?

Phantastic cake! Happy 7000th show US Tour!! cheers In regards to Raab being back on tour, I would think they would bump up Susan Owen to alternate for the time being.

That's what I heard, that Susan Owen would be he Christine alternate while Marni Raab was in Florida. Though I'm not sure if it's the two situations are connected.

I'm already married (and have no reason to think I'll ever need to repeat the process as yet) but if I weren't I'd want that cake for my wedding.

What a beautiful cake, I always hope that Food Network would have done a "challenge" for Phantom like they did with Shrek. Or if the gang at Ace of Cakes did a Phantom cake.

I really dont like the broadway cakes either, but I dont really want to knock it because it may be done my someone in-house since it looks just like it did last year.

I hadn't thought of that. If it's done by someone in-house (i.e. not a professional cake decorator) then it's actually really impressive. I doubt I could manage anything like that. If it's done by somebody they actually go to seperately and pay to have make it for them, then they should find somebody better.

You're probably right, but if it were me, I wouldn't care. Just let me eat it. Laughing Honestly, it's nice that people have the talent to make beautiful cakes, but they're meant to be eaten. Just slather some frosting on a vanilla Betty Crocker mix and put it in my belly. Laughing

But these cakes are made to be displayed. I'm sure they're eaten afterward, but they wouldn't bother decorating them at all if they weren't made to be looked at and photographed for a special event like the show's anniversary or a landmark performance.

And this is going to be the last post I make on the subject, because even I don't know why I'm arguing about cake.

Here's a short article about the 7000th tour performance: clicky!

WHAT'S THIS ABOUT THE TOUR CLOSING?

Is this for real?

None of the official news outlets have reported anything...maybe this rumor is just that.

If it closes, that's upsetting. But if it doesn't, they should sack the tour cast leads and get new people. I seem to see the SAME cast touring around everwhere. Bored now?

Then go to Broadway or Vegas.

Besides, the Tour leads have been swapped several times in the last few years.

I'm a hard person to please. I have a friend who's bff's with MSL. I'm going to ask her if he's thinking about returning any time soon. That's a Raoul that I could at least sit through and think dreamy thoughts about. :] Excuse me...

Mmmm....I loved him as Raoul. Only saw him in the role once, unfortunately. We took a backstage tour that day, but didn't meet him. A few weeks later, though, I was at the Broadway Flea Market and standing near the Phantom table when it began to rain hard. I ducked inside the open box office doors to get out of the downpour and a guy ducked in at the same time...it was MSL. We chatted for a couple of minutes and he was a total sweetheart. I just happened to have the Phantom's prop note to Raoul in my bag...I'd bought a few loose notes that day...and he signed it for me.

As for the tour cast being boring...maybe to the diehard fans, but the majority of people seeing the tour in many cities are seeing it for the first, sometimes only time. To them, the cast is new, not boring. Like when the tour came here in 2006...we had Gary Mauer, Marie Danvers/Beth Southard, and Jim Weitzer. Maybe boring to diehard fans who've see multiple casts multiple times and can't wait to see every understudy, too...but to the local audience, it was as exciting as seeing the original cast on opening night.

EEEEE! You saw MSL live! Sweet. Honestly, he's so cute and precious. (Yes, I said precious.) I'm glad he was so sweet and he signed your prop note! Because, dude, he'll sign your shirt if you asked him to. Oh MSL. <3

True, I and I forget that - so I do apologize if I offended anyone. Embarassed I've just been spoilied (won't go into any details) so to me, well, it's just so blah. But yeah, to other people it might not. Idk, I'm just wanting some different names. But I bet it's hard getting people to stay on the road and travel a lot.

If this is true (and I'm not entirely convinced), could it be that they're releasing the rights for regional production? That could be a silver lining...
