Phantom of the Opera or Les Miserables? Which one is better? Why is it better? If you've never seen either of them which one would you rather see and why?
I grew up with both of these plays in my life. Luckily, my mother and father loved them and hence, passed on the love.
The Phantom of the Opera or Les Miserables, question has floated around my family for years. I think we all love them both but we all deifinately like one better then the other. Personally I have always been drawn more to Phantom of the Opera, while my sister Sherry will forever sing the praises of Les Miserables.
I have seen both plays in theater and have seen both the movies as well. Les mis movie sucked, phantom movie rocked, although no one can sing Music of the Night like Michael Crichton.
I can't remember how old I was when I first saw these plays but I remember my mom thinking that it was not worth paying for me and my twin sister to see the play if we did not understand what was going on. So, on our annual trip to California she would play the soundtrack and explain what was going on to me and my twin sister and we would ask questions if we felt the urge to know more. This way we thoroughly understood the plot of both plays.
I loved it. I loved listening to them and listening to my mom explain all the complexity of the plots. It was awesome.
Cassie was afraid of Phantom after her first viewing and I fell asleep at the end of Les Mis during my first viewing. But I think we would both agree that we wouldn't give up that experience for anything.
They are completely different in almost every way but both absolutely wonderful. Luckily, I happend to marry a man who grew up with a mother who loved Musicals and therefore he shares my appreciation for them. Lucky me!
I love both of these plays. I plan on seeing them whenever they come to Gamage.
So, tell me which is your favorite. Leave a comment and explain why it is your favorite. Thank you.
