Christine Daaé may not be the title character of the musical The Phantom of the Opera, but she is the one with the most stage time and arguably goes through the most visible character arc. Despite these two facts, however, she’s not looked on too favorably by critics. She’s often thought of as flat, boring, and a character whose plot is in service of others’. Is there any truth to these claims? If so, is it possible to still consider Christine a worthwhile character from a feminist standpoint?
"Christine is a child at the beginning and unqualified adult at the end." Though this quote actually comes from a favorable review of the actress playing Christine, it shows a popular belief about the character: that she is juvenile and doesn’t change much by the time the show ends. Fans and critics have often found this to be an issue with Christine Daaé, but I tend to disagree.

Someone needs to let me know if they know where a copy of the DVD or a rip of it is available for the show “Majiyo”. It is part of the stage series TEAM発砲・B・ZIN, and is the one Miyuki was in.

along with this guy

image

Yeah, you remember him. Shibue Jyoji, Mamoru from PGSM.

image

Anyway, I’d really like to see the whole thing

image

If that’s possible.

image

Because, Miyuki.

image

If you go here, where I got some of the pictures, the blogger also has a clip of a song Miyuki sings in it.

Please, let me know.

My mind is still full of so much, to quote Elphaba, “Did that really just happen?” It was a three week gig, but it felt like three days. I ended up getting two chorus girls - Rebecca Kritzer and Shayla Beck - and two swings - Marissa Lupp and Brenda Hamilton - along the way when one of my girls went in for Nessarose a few times.

Those costumes. Those fucking costumes. I CAN’T with those costumes! From a distance they’re pretty awesome, but up close they are BREATH TAKING! Elphaba’s second act costume

- this one -

is incredible up close. I wanted it so badly. So freaking badly! Needless to say though, I was able to narrow it down to my two favorite costumes. My first one is Glinda’s Emerald City dress.

Sure, it’s pretty simple, but I would wear that in a heartbeat. Of course, I’m paler than Casper the ghost and I’m dish water blonde so the chances of my being able to pull of a pale yellow dress are virtually non-existent. It’s adorable as Hell up close though :)

The second one could be because I worked with it up close and personal :) It’s one of the chorus girls’ costume for the ‘Dancing Through Life’ party scene:

Pictures from backstage are limited at best since this was a job I really didn’t want to fuck up on. Here are some pics for ya’ll

Dear Fansies,

I know you’re in pain. I know you think Broadway is and potentially always will be a little darker without the show you love. I know you think the Nederlander will never be the same again.

While I wouldn’t dream of rushing you through the process, I want to assure you that it will get better. Somehow you find a way to make do with the cast recording and bootlegs and eventually you can look at the marquee and it won’t hurt too much to not see your show’s title there anymore.

Sincerely,

A Renthead
