whats happened to the 20th anniversary concert?

i don't think POTO has the same following Le Miz does. I doubt it will get much, can ALW topple Cam Macks brilliant hat trick of a celebration?



It was planned for the Royal Albert Hall, but a fall out with ALW and the bbc stopped proceedings at the time.  

I think Phantom does have a followingg and a large one at that! But I think there are more die-hard phantom phans in the states than in the UK.

Don;'t forget Cam Mac was a producer for Phantom as well! Although RUg seem to handle most of the goings on now which is why i think there will be little done for it.

Phantom doesnt have as big a following as Les Mis??!  Seriously!?

Phantom has a huge following, all around the world.  I would also put money on Phantom outlasting Les Mis.

I love both shows by the way.

Plus it's dull as dishwater without the set and scenery! Can't imagine it working anywhere near as well as LM in concert.

Not sure Saigon as a concert would work as well either but I'd pay to see it assuming Cameron's stunt casting didn't attack.

Here's hoping the Miss Saigon movie pans out well. Details on IMDB have disappeared though of late. There was a director and producer attached to it until recently.

They are trying to make a Les Mis movie first.
