Rare pictures 2

Charleygirl's post on those pictures, my eyes go instantly to the one with Raoul and Christine in the final lair. It doesn't look staged, it looks as though they were in the moment when it was caught.
THIS! It's just a world of difference in atmosphere and genuine facial expressions. Joan Marcus takes good photos when allowed to take them during a dress rehearsal or performance, but the staged Broadway photos is a snore. They would be better off just photoshopping in the new heads, cause they really all look the same...

charleygirl, than you so much for those good scans (and for labeling the photos so well too!).

dramagirl1990, the Crawford photo you want is this one, isn't it?

Masqueradelove, I assume that you've seen these sites re: those Masquerade costumes?

I only have photos of the "Bee Woman" and "Napoleon". Haven't put "Napoleon" online yet, but "Bee Woman" can be seen with the other dummies, here:

Hahaha, true. Laughing I haven't found the exact origin of the boat photo. It resembles the photos of Trista Moldovan and Hugh Panaro, but no exact match. So I wonder if they took a photo of the new leads in the boat but wasn't happy with how Sierra Boggess looked it in? Though that seems unlikely, she always looks lovely in photos...

I thought it was the one of Hugh and Samantha Hill for a moment, but it's not, even though the two are very similar.

This version from the new Broadway leaflet photographed by wanderingchild on Tumblr would seem to be the original (the lighting on Sierra's face looks right), but if that's the case I have no idea why they decided to go with that terrible Photoshop bodge job. Neutral

Your guess is as good as mine! How anyone could think that altered picture actually looks better is beyond me. Shocked

Since lots of people apparently haven't seen these, I feel like sharing. Cause they are some of the most dynamic and atmospheric photos to come out of the Broadway production in ages. Cast is Hugh Panaro, Samantha Hill, Kyle Barisich and Michele McConnell, and they're all by Kyle Froman:

Those are some amazing angles! Love the one in the manager's office with Carlotta just storming in. And that post-unmasking shot still floors me.

Two more photos, from a less stellar photographer but an equally stellar production: The draped proscenium and the curtain call at Her Majesty's Theatre on January 25th. The cast was Lara Martins, Antony Hansen, Marcus Lovett and Anna O'Byrne. And Barry James doing a non-drunk Firmin! Laughing

Haaaahaha, amusingly enough that was my first thought too. Anthony Hansen plays a bit of a superhero Raoul, so I think he just made the shirt... eeer, match. Most London Raouls wears it less open, the exceptions are probably Steve Barton and Oliver Thornton. And Ryan Silverman and Andrew Ragone in Las Vegas, but they wore a slightly different shirt I think.

And now I'm really curious to see him (not that there's much chance of that). I felt Ragone gave off a real "Superman" vibe--he was so noble and strong it almost seemed like he shouldn't be for real, but he was genuinely that good--and it's one of the things I really liked about him.

Those Broadway photos are what I'd love to see on the front of house! He's clearly very engaged in the emotional poignancy of these moments.

Anea- great shot of the pre-show setup in London.

Those images you posted of the current Broadway cast are amazing. So much better than Joan Marcus'. They remind me of Clive Barda's, only better quality.

I think Joan Marcus is underrated in the way that she is "forced" to do posed promotional photos and not take photos during a performance. There's only so much atmosphere and mood you can capture in such photos. The photos she did for Las Vegas and the "Longest Running" brochure are of a different caliber alltogether, and no wonder - they were taken while the actors were performing instead of posing.

That said, I think the new photos taken by a new photographer shows some interesting angles and moments Joan Marcus has never captured, and it might be because of the "fresh eyes" on the production. He's also taken several ballet photos in the past and is used to capture movement and speed. I think it shows in his Phantom photos.

Anyone gotten the new Broadway brochure yet?

Then she certainly needs to step up and offer the challenge of taking the photos while in the midst of a dress rehearsal or something. I'm just sick and tired of those awfully staged, not feeling the 'vibe', photos.

So I found this photo on Topfoto...and have decided it's the most perfect boat picture I've ever seen. Problem is, Topfoto doesn't have a scrap of info about it, not even a year. Does anyone have a larger/non-watermarked version of this photo, or even know who we're looking at?

Thank you!

Do you remember the credits/tags for it? Which production it's from? Easier to look in my files if I know which production or actors to look for. I think it's either Basel or West End?

Similar, here's Jonathan Roxmouth, Claire Lyon (Emilie Lynn) and Anthony Downing, from the World Tour's previous Manila run in 2012. The "Notes II" photo is of alternate Emilie Lynn, the rest is of Claire Lyon.

Operfantomet, that's the problem: there were no tags, nothing beyond "lair" and "Christine" and "boat". There was no year, no actors, no nothing--I already checked twice! I know Topfoto's 'unknown' photos often turn out to be Basel or UK Tour (poor Zoe Curlett never gets her name tagged on anything!), if that helps...I knew it was a long shot, but I figured I'd ask anyway! Thanks!
