The Phantom of the Opera by John Kenley, Robert Thomas Noll & David Gooding, 1988

I saw this one also, the thing that made me angry about this is that in 1988, when it was coming to Akron, OH they used the Dewynters phantom Mask, the ALW version, so when I first saw the ad, I called the box office and asked if it was the ALW version, the ticket girl said she was'nt sure but she thought it was??

this production as well as the other Non-Webber versions somewhat relied on the power of the Webber version to sell tickets, (I personally do not think that it was done intentionally but the confusion was there)

I did have a problem with this particular version using the Dewynters mask and I sent Dewynters a note and told them about it, and after that it was cease no longer using it,

when I find my notes I will write down the review, and it was a very good version, and good actors, the costumes were horrid, not just compared to Bjournson but just in general.

Phantom puts on his mask but who is he? Akron Beacon Journal Feb 6, 1989

Phantom puts on his mask but who is he? Akron Beacon Journal February 6, 1989 by Bill O'Connor, (Akron Ohio version of Frank Rich)

this production came about due to the great popularity of the Andrew Lloyd Webber version, nothing wrong with that, Broadway producers have no lock on this tale,

what is disquieting about the Carousel production is that no one seems to know what kind of play it is,

basic plot Christine(Melanie Vaughan) young singer coached by mysterious masked man(David Cleveland) who lives in the cellars below the operahouse, a musical genius, and he hypnotises Christine, he is mad and in his maddness loves Christine.

Handsome count Raoul (Brent Black) also loves Christine. in the background, mysterious Persion (Jose Andrews) the phantoms side kick. a pompas diva Carlotta ( Barbara Smith-Davis) lead tenor Enrico(Michael Cabestraro) Lascivious manager Richard (Allen Walker Lane) a frustrated choreographer M. Pierre (Alan Kass)

Underscored with music the singers are robust. we are trying to become involved with the love story of an innocent young woman and a scarred man. against some neat scenery and some high production values.

Much fault lies with the director Joseph Patton and with Kenly and Noll.
