THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA 


This is different. This is Spiders on the stage and it is spooky. However the clever Furniture tells us what is going on. The gorgeous boxes look like they are fantastic and expensive. Plus the sound on the stage is gorgeous. And not to mention that everyone is dressed with Diamonds, Gold, and wonderful looking clothes. 

This new exciting Opera at the Orpheum Theatre -  is certainly the best and brightest - and the cast is wonderful. They love us on the stage and we love them. Oh, talk of darkness: Christine Daae' - Katie Travis - Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny - Storm Lineberger - Carlotta Guidicelli - Jacquelynne Fontaine and many, many talents.  And boy, is the cast a blast. The Clothes are sparkling. Overly sparkling - but they know.  I wish I could wear them. Just kidding. But that's all I ask? When can I enter the Palace? 

There are Grand SHOW POSTERS on the Outside. Look outside....you will also be driven to the wonderful staging INSIDE - plus the acting that I have seen in this world and on this stage. WOW! 

I would be the Dance Captain (Tary Sweeney) - but she knows what to do. 

The Phantom acts like he just might bring him to the high and mighty. Especially in the face of death. Oh - talk of darkness  - it's creepy and crawly. It scares me. And of course there is - (Christine Daae') -- don't leave us. 'PLEASE'! 

Even the Phantom has a bad side of his face - he still wants Christine. She has the style and elegance to all. The Phantom has broad dimension...if only he could them together. He is as audacious under his command. He may bring you more! I'm sure you will.

She got a little mad. "He left here and had a fight. Then he fell asleep. One was falling asleep. Their was one looking at floating stars. She got a very bright Red Dress with a kind of a Sambo. But don't try to get to close to the boyfriend yet. From the Red Dress for Tango Day - wearing shining Jewels. 

For another drifting and floating. She floats - it's a bad time. There family requests some 'Real Crime'. Some soup and got mad. She shouted out "Your a F---ing floater". His girl friend shouts out more 'Mother F----er' -- or my. One of the Actors said: Boring IS Boring. (He seems to step back from girls that Cry.) 

They found that swearing is Now (1 2 3) and Dancing 10 Minutes left. The Boyfriend is not thrilled for XMAS Bulbs - BIG, BIG ONES. The family finally got together, and requested some Real Crime. Tsk - Tsk.

MAGIC MIKE - SHAKE-A - PLUS STRIPPING




THE CAST AT THE BEGINNING IS TERRIFIC. CHANNING TATUM IS THE BEST. HE PLAYS COMEDY AND DRAMA TEASE - PLUS EVERYONE LOVES HIM 

Yep - Magic Mike is very amusing - at the beginning. However  - Mike, is funny at most. You'll find out that "Magic Mike" - you'll see that this is a very strange sequence. About everything takes off your body. I'm sure that older men and women, might be shocked as the men let everyone love it, and then again - maybe they won't . Wow!

The film is extremely compelling. Channing Tatum shows that he has a hot body - and a smooth look at his face. And of course there is this: Stripping off the men and women bring scenes that are on the way toward drugs. Most of the show overwhelms. The movie seems to keep the men on top (exactly) as well as the women. Channing certainly will not give that up! Amazing AND Shocking!

STEVEN SODERBERGH - SEEMED TO BE HAPPY. MAYBE YES, AND MAYBE NO, TO OTHERS. 

THERE ARE A FEW WITTY REMARKS THAT GIVE US A FEW SMILES. MOST OF IT KNOCKS THE HELL OUT OF EVERYONE. EXCEPT THE WOMEN SHOWS JOE MANGANIELLO HOT TO DANCE 



Here are some of the actors:


Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriquez and Alex Pettyfer.
