    Exclamation 100 Years of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

    Just to spread the word, 23 September 2009 will mark the 100th anniversary of the appearance of the first installment of Gaston Leroux's Le Fantôme de l'Opéra in Le Gaulois, the French paper in which the novel was initially serialised in Le Gaulois prior to publication in book format the following year in 1910.

    To celebrate this achievement, a brand new Phantom Twitter stream has been launched to spread the word of the centenary and the latest news and developments concerning the Opera Ghost. Eventually it is hoped the stream will be used to release exciting new ongoing research currently being undertaken into the novel and all its subsequent adaptations (including, of course, the Lloyd Webber musical) in areas never previously explored. The more fans who join the stream, the better, so we can spread word of the centenary to the wider world and draw attention to all things Phantom!

    I've seen the play twice. Once in Philadelphia on NYE and once on Broadway. I could watch POTO every couple years. I love it that much. My husband loves it too. He's the one who introduced me to the play. I think he's seen it four times.

    September 23? So close to my birthday, only a few days off! Maybe that explains my obsession...
