Little Erik made a new friend.
I’m reading Leroux’ book again after 6 years. I forgot that Erik has a bad writing :D I find it hilarious :D
Newspaper Article from ‘The Glasgow Herald’, April 24th 1987.
The article reports James Paterson (original West End Don Attilio and Passarino) debut as the Phantom in London. Paterson seems to have been whisked on, due to Michael Crawford’s illness, and Steve Barton’s injury, due to trapping his knee in the trap door during Why so silent.
A programme I have,from when Paterson played Andre, reports that on this occasion he performed the role of the Phantom 23 times.
This also confirms he never played opposite Sarah Brightman- but Claire Moore and Rebecca Caine instead!
Cool snippet, glad I found it!
