Can I swoon now?? My oh my…
On the advice of , I went to see Phantom in the theater today. Gerry Butler is now my new eye candy:
*fans self* I have to agree with her that Erik has always held quite an appeal for me. Something about that whole Orpheus thing; the seductive quality of his voice and genius. If only it weren’t for that minor psychotic thing…
He is truly a pitiable character, and you want to just take him home and love him. Unfortunatley, he’s insane. *sigh*
What Michael Crawford did for his voice, Butler does ten-fold for his presence. “Point of No Return” and “Down Once More…” are the point where I usually become a sobbing wreck when listening to the cast recording, and the movie definitely did it for me again. I found myself wondering if Butler might not get the Oscar nod for this one. I sure hope so!
