No photos allowed during the show, but we bought the VIP tickets so we got to take pictures backstage...
Anthony Crivello who plays Phantom talked with us while we got to watch him take off his prosthetic face.... then posed for pictures with us.
Under the stage are all the props and special effects and the control room where they are all cued and operated. We got to see the Masquerade characters and many props and the wig room, as well as photograph the inside of the theater.
And then it was home again... but see my daughter's blog with her Phantom costumes at loettchen.livejournal.com
Here is my daughter in her Red Death costume which she designed and made herself.
