How has "Phantom of the Opera" (all versions) affected your life?


Jeanette Birt:

Bonnie: I can honestly say that I was so emotionally moved at my first performance, that I was weak by the time the show was over. I had been searching for a way to put everything on hold, and the POTO music was my cure. I do volunteer work for children who are profoundly and severly retarded, and when I would leave there, I would be wired hours afterward. POTO showed me what I always knew, that there is beauty in everything. Many of the children looked monsterous because of what the seizure medicine does to them. People thought of Erik as hideous, but he is the most beautiful man I have ever seen. True beauty is in the eye of the beholder, POTO has taught me how to let the music set me free. When I play the tape on the way home, I am there, in the labyrinth, with Erik. It is the best thing that could have happened to me. I only wish it were all real, it is the ultimate escape.
