Phantom: Abridged

| 5 Comments
+3 BOOBIE GRAB!


Did you know that...
  • when you go to see Phantom of the Opera on a Tuesday Night in June, it's at 100% max capacity?
  • the tourists audibly gasp when the Chandelier is revealed?
  • the guy who does the "turn off your cellphones" speech nowadays really does sound like he's bored/tired/depressed?
  • PHANTOM 2 is actually going to be premiering in just eight short months, and there's nothing you can do about it?
Just wanna get all our bases covered before riding BROADWAY: THE RIDE.

(Or "Phantom of the Opera Abridged", for those of you who are having trouble pulling down your lapbars...)

Thanks to Jennifer Jordan for co-writing.

YES ALL OPERA HOUSES HAVE THIS WHY DO YOU ASK

Hilarious! Although this script really does read like you guys just got wasted and typed whatever came to mind while listening to the OCR. (That's a good thing.)
Gil and Jennifer...I laughed so loud at this.

Don't ever stop.

I love it all!

This may be your best abridgement yet! Loved the cameo by ALW's cat, though I'm not sure the sequel is such a bad thing. I mean, the abridgement of it practically writes itself. I bet you could write one before the show even opened and you'd be dead accurate.
ROFL! This has got to be the best one yet! A BTW I also can't believe there's going to be a sequel!
This is the funniest thing I've read in quite some time. Bravo. It's pretty dead-on accurate as well!
Oh, and yes, I can't believe the sequel is happening either- already listened to the album and it's quite horrific. Some of the stuff that happens seems like it came from one of your abridged scripts already.
