Broadway's longest-running musical rings up twenty-five years this month, so it's time to look at a much less successful chapter in its history: the hauntingly awful film adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera!
NOTE: YouTube content bots have been an issue with this particular offering; if you can't see the episode here, please check the Zippcast link!
Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.
New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.
