Phantom to Close On Broadway#1
Posted: 7/16/08 at 8:08pm
For four days why they put in a new sound system. Has any other show closed to fix something for a bit?

Aww....I saw this announcement on Playbill and was headed over here to make the same misleading post! Genius!

If Phantom was closing we'd be having a major board meltdown right about now!

They already did the same for the London production a few months ago.

I think the title of this thread should be changed...I almost jumped for joy when I read it and then I opened it...

WickedBoy...the ARTICLE states the show is closing for 4 days/perfromances in August.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Funny title, I don't see how anyone could have been mislead. All you had to do was look at the headlines at the top of the page for more information.

I'm sure if this was any other show, people would be nagging the original poster to change the title of the thread, regardless of any headlines. But, whatever.

WickedBoy: That comment was uncalled for. I've met a lot of intelligent, dedicated theatre people who were under 18. And I bet they can all spell "because" and capitalize their "I'm" - things that should've been mastered by first or second grade.

Ok the world's most pyscho phantom fan is here.....and yeah haha this thread was funny. If Phantom was really closing, you would have seen the HUGE news headlines blaring it on the BWW main page before you clicked over to the message boards, duhhhh. And anyway I read playbill.com first before this site so I knew all about the 4 day va-cay. So who wants to go see the final show with the old sound and the first show with the new sound? And for all you phantom-haters out there, all I gotta say is, to quote that maino song "you see me! hi haters! hi haters!" haha
