First, I love the cast! John Owen Jones will always be the best West End Phantom. Haha! Katie Hall is my favorite Cosette, and Simon Bailey is my 2nd (1st is Hadley, 2nd Simon and Jim Weitzer, 3rd Killian Donnelly) favorite Raoul. :D They all got those amazing vocal chops! Just perfect!
But, I didn’t love most of the set at all! Oops, sorry.
Here are the videos I’ve seen so I guess I should comment on these (Got the links from http://wanderingchild.tumblr.com/) :)
Think of Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXTtZlCrUyk&feature=player_embedded) - Loved Katie’s voice. Though it’s not as powerful as Gina Beck and Sierra Boggess, it still sounded cute and reminds me of her as Cosette. And they just used the scarf on the first and last part :( That I don’t like!
Title song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqCfz6kPNjI&feature=player_embedded plus the Mirror scene) - I actually didn’t understand the Mirror set. And that moment when Raoul is slowly looking for Christine is not cute. I mean, is that what people do when their loved one is missing?? Duh! Now, the only thing I loved during the title song is that they didn’t use their alternates to do their way going to the Phantom’s lair. It’s more realistic. Didn’t love that mini torch on the boat. :/ Oh, but Katie’s awesome voice at the end is just beautiful! :)
I WANT MOTN!
Point of No Return (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIqkjieJ90k&feature=player_embedded) - To make it short, I loved the vocals but not the set and John’s costume. Katie’s movements are so cute and sexy. Still, I think it looked elegant for Christine. But, I didn’t loved John’s movements. I just don’t know why. Sorry!
Final Lair (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3nlEeX4dOo&feature=player_embedded) - Loved it when the Phantom pushes Christine on the bed. Hahaha! :) Didn’t like Katie’s acting but I loved John’s! Make’s me miss the original set and blockings :(
*Wait! Does anyone have a video of All I Ask of You, Masquerade and Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again??! Those are the only set and choreography that I really loved! Please post it :D Thanks!
