Christine: "What time is it?"
Erik: "I don't know. Pass me that trombone and we'll find out."
Erik: *plays the trombone very loudly*
Mme. Giry, in the distance: "WHO IS THAT PLAYING THE TROMBONE AT TWO IN THE MORNING!?"
Erik: "It's two in the morning."

Simon Burke as Raoul, 1994
Being Raoul - a review of and interview with Simon Burke, 1994, by RC Do Rozario
Published in Masquerade/Beneath the Mask #4, Winter 1994.
It's a thankless job, really. You get in there, you woo the girl, you face fireballs, falling chandeliers, even odd notes, you end up at the end of a rope looking decidedly goofish and when at the end of all that, your neck a little raw, wet through, your shirt stripped, you finally get the girl...
No one's really interested! They're all mopping their eyes because the Phantom said in a despairing wail:
"Christine, I looove you!"
Simon Burke agreed it was a pretty thankless job. "Everyone loves the Phantom."
Okay, he also agreed that it's hard to make Raoul three-dimensional. That's fair enough. Raoul never gets a solo. His best song is a duet and even here he's not the locus, it's the ever so frightened, ever so vulnerable Christine. His juiciest line is a whole: "So, let it be war between us!"
Those were the bits the West End's last Raoul really enjoyed. Simon Burke is an Australian actor. His career began at eleven, and at thirteen he won the Australian Film Institute's Best Actor Award. In his twenties he began to sing too, and won acclaim for roles like Marius in "Les Mis" and Billy Crocker in "Anything Goes." He also starred in A-grade Australian TV, like "Brides of Christ".
He took on the role of Raoul in 1992, after turning up for the audition in ripped jeans and with the lyrics to a song scrawled on his hand.
The couple of hours he puts in at a gym each day did wonders for this new Raoul. Simon's performance managed to snatch a little limelight from the Phantom! It didn't leave you perplexed as to why - well, okay, for some fans, it didn't leave you QUITE so perplexed - as to why Christine goes off with Raoul. After all, Raoul is strong, pretty good looking, and definitely not a wimp. In fact, he relishes the challenge of the gauntlet the Phantom throws him. He's not going to just run aimlessly about after Christine, he's going to RESCUE her.
The actor himself is extremely intelligent - though you'll never get him to say that. Or admit it. He's happiest, it seems, in a pair of old jeans.
His voice has been improving in leaps and bounds, and is now a fulsome tenor with plenty of panache. He's a wonderful actor, at his best when he gets something either meaty or comic. While he tends to get a lot of romantic leads, you know of wonder if he's reached his full potential. Then, he is only 32!
Note: Thorsten Tinney, a Viennese Raoul, showed off what he was capable of in "Kiss of the Spiderwoman", where he brought the house down with his "socialist anthem". Can it be that the Raouls of this world have been hiding their true strength?

Let’s try this one more time: Rare/unreleased Phantom & Les Mis Broadway audios for sale
Hello again folks. Since these were announced for sales a few days ago I've not received any contacts for them. I cannot really understand why, the number of people who've asked about these audios over the years would suggest there'd be a lot of interest.
So I'm making a new listing. I’ve clarified the language in the NFT rules since originally it sounded pretty intense and sketchy. And several audios have been repriced to $3, however the rarer of the audios shall remain at $5. The prices will be listed beneath each audio.
This is the only time these audios will ever be released in any way, shape, or form. They will never be available for trade. Here's a brief summary of whats available:
They are all superb quality, and feature some incredibly rare and sought after performances including excellent quality sources of BOTH Norm Lewis' final shows as The Phantom, a collection of excellent recordings from the AMAZING 2015 Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival production of Les Mis which featured former Broadway and US Tour actors, Alfie Boe and John Owen-Jone's first Valjean performances in the Les Mis Broadway Revival 2.0, the final performances of popular Valjean alternates Nathaniel Hackmann and Aaron Walpole, the ONLY full recording of alternate Valjean J. Michael Finley, and a new and excellent source of the final performance from that production.
IMPORTANT NOTE: They are to remain STRICTLY NFT and completely unlisted by anybody who purchases them. They are never to be traded out. To assure that this rule is followed, whenever someone purchases them I will simply be tagging the mp3 files (similar to how you add an artist name or album name on iTunes, not anything sinister!) with some sort of phrase that’ll indicate the purchaser to me, this is not something anyone else will be able to know what it means but me so your email will remain private. This way, if you purchase the audio, trade it out, and I find it on a list, I can check the mp3 tags for the indicator on it and find the source of the leak.
I am stating it clearly right now in case there's any uncertainty in the future: I have no desire for these to ever be traded further--not now, and not anytime in the future. Thank you.
Alright, sorry about that haha! You can reach me at my email address — bradyrands@yahoo.com, or you can contact me at my trading website: https://phantomoftheoperatrades.weebly.com/ and if you have any other questions just let me know!

Eu ignoro totalmente a história de LND, mas de resto - e especialmente as músicas - me tiram completamente do eixo. Vou defender ´Till I Hear You Sing pra sempre <3 um dos melhores solos da broadway e só o que importa é a minha opinião.
