I just wanna point out that the people in costume were NOT the lipstick-love-letter writing, mist-bottling, stage-sleeping, rose-throwing, crying people...

And hahaha, that is a great summary indeed Raphael! I totally second everything.

I'm gonna post some costume pictures shortly. If anyone protest against being in that bunch of photos, feel free to tell me so and I'll remove it.

Well one of us might have been bottling mist to resell to said phan Razz

OK, here are photos from the costume night on Friday 31st of August.

The costume night was not an official event, but everyone was welcome to join. The idea was to meet up in the lobby before the show, and get the house photographer to take photos of us in the staircase. That did not happen. However, we took a lot of photos of eachother, until a rather cool usher came and said our awesomeness hindered people from going into the theatre, so if we could please find out seats...? Hahahaha! Most of us sat in the front seats, so it's safe to say most in the cast noticed. But I also think most in the cast knew on forehand that we were there in costume that night.

It was very amusing to see during the show how the poor random theatregoers glanced over at the correct costume when they appeared on stage. I had "Lair Phantom" and "Red Death" in front of me, but unlike some people at the Phan Week some years ago Red Death DID take off his hat and mask...

After the performance we headed out for the lobby where we took a gazillion photos. We were later joined by Brianne Kelly Morgan (Meg) and Michael Lackey (Auctioneer). One of the costume guests had brought along her father and he had a professional camera, so hopefully we'll see some truly high quality photos soon. In the mean time, here are nice snap shots and "party pictures" from the Phantom Theatre lobby at The Venetian:



Elissa, later transformed into Lair Christine as the skirt was given away. FUN photo shoot, and so cool to see the skirt in a full outfit context. The second photo is from Stephanie.



Obviously Lil' Erik had to try on the skirt as well.



Then this happened!



The Star Princess. I love this photo.



Carlotta's Spider Masquerade costume sneaking up on Creepy Wax Crawford.



Red Death-ilicious!



Red Death Phantom and Lair Phantom.



Uhm... This is where the party pictures starts...



Masquerade Meg and Star Princess. Masqueradelicious! This photo is also from Stephanie.



The Il Muto maid/Serafimo.



Raphael in a true Venetian costume, in Rococo style. His dresser is, believe it or not, Don Juan Phantom.



Oh yeah, I much prefer Don Juan to Creepy Wax Crawford. Cool to take Don Juan/Aminta photos too!



One of all of us in the lobby staircase. Got a bit of help from the pro's there... Picture from Georgia. Thanks to Cheryl and her amazing UK tour Degas wig overlapping my hair, it looks like I have the world's longest hair ever...

I never got to take a good photo of the girl at far left and far right. If anyone have any to share, or others I've forgotten, feel free. I'd love to see more pictures here from the costume night!

Not to mention John Leslie Wolfe (M. André), Kevan Patriquin (stuntman), and Emily Thrasher (Mme. Firmin)!

I seriously wish I'd taken more pictures...

I hate to ask this here but, what is up with all of a sudden noticing my boobs!? I've seen a few postings where people have been talking about them. One person asking "dear lord, where do they end?" It was a photoshopped picture that I'm not happy with. Mad Not cool. Evil or Very Mad

Whaaaaat? You've joined the boobs of doom club? Welcome. It's a strange world, where everyone apparently think them ladies should be discussed in detail because... uh, they're there.

Anyones ass we should kick on your behalf? Suspect

Thank you, Charleygirl! I feel so great in it! Anea did a beautiful job with it. I'm trying to keep it out of my cat's reach so he doesn't ruin the tassels. So far, so good. Wink Now I guess I need to build my own Hannibal. Shocked I mean, what good is it to have an Elisa skirt with no top. Twisted Evil

Deserted Phans member Raphael was going to say something, but Deserted Phans moderator Raphael gagged him, hog-tied him, threw him in the basement and locked the door before he could do so.

You're welcome.

Neat article about the guy who got parts of the set from Vegas:

I wish the whole set had gone to someone who could recreate the show for fans for a price. What a pilgrimage that would be! A Phantom fantasy camp.

That should definitely be a project of CamMac/RUG's when the show is over in its original form. Hook up with MGM Studios or Universal or something, or just have it somewhere in NY.

It's kind of why, of all places, someplace like NYC should have a broadway/theatre museum. Not that it would be totally Phantom, but it would be nice to have someplace to go that showcases up close aspects of famous/long running shows among other things.

That would be awesome. The Theatre Wing should work on that, with backing from major producers and theatre owners.

The idea of a museum like that has been tossed around on a few forums like Broadway World for a while.

I, for one, would love it...theatre and museums are two of my favorite things to begin with.

I know some people have said the concept would only "sell" to hardcore NYC-area theatre fans and not bring in enough tourists, but I think such a museum could attract both...there are enough musicals that are iconic and recognizable to the general public to bring in tourists.

I think it might attract both if it was located right in the heart of Broadway. I can't imagine a normal tourist, who has little or no real Broadway knowledge or interest, going out of their way to see a theatre museum. Problem then is finding real estate in the Times Square area for such a place, and I can't imagine how that would be possible these days.

I think it's an awesome idea, but probably not a feasible one.

Based on what I've heard, and since other major pieces were destroyed, that could be part of the reason he got them--not necessarily for preservation. The powers-that-be knew they would eventually be rendered unusable.

Oh, thanks for this. I was crushed to see such memorable pieces of theatre lying out in the sun to weather away and fade.

Yeah, we were all in shock when we saw the pics of the set being destroyed. It's too bad none of us were around for the week after the show closed to try and salvage things. They could have made a killing holding a charity auction. The organ alone could have fetched at least $6,000, but instead was cut up and thrown out. Sad I'm glad to see some parts of the set survived, even though they will weather heavily out in the Nevada desert.
