Ah, listening to “All I Ask of You” from Phantom of the Opera.  Have to admit I can be a sucker for romantic duets.  Although in Phantom, the best songs are the songs of the Phantom himself, because they are so powerful and sad, as is his character in general.  *sigh*  Maybe after this life I will get reincarnated into a musical, where my whole life consists of beautiful, ecstatic, poignant, tragic, passionate, airy, vibrant, uplifting, heartbreaking music.  That is, if I don’t get to be a cat in my next life, which seems like the best way to go.

My attention span is deplorable.  But in the meantime, I just found out to my interest that the boy who played Dicken in the original cast of The Secret Garden (the musical) grew up to star in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”  Interesting.  ALSO Mandy Patinkin, who played Archibald Craven in The Secret Garden later played Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride.  Funny the things you find out while not writing IHUM papers.
