Without a doubt, the Phantom of the Opera is my favorite live show, and I’ve seen quite a few.
I saw it in Dallas while I was in college and my sister and I sat so far back that all the faces were tiny blobs so I still don’t know what the Phantom’s face looks like when he rips his mask off. Unless it looks like a tiny blob, then yes, I’ve seen the Phantom’s face.
I love the music. The Music of the Night is my favorite and when David Cook sang it on American Idol, it combined two of my favorite things in the world … that song and, you know, David Cook. A trifecta would be a duet of David Cook and Bryan Adams singing that song. But then I would die from happiness, and I’m too young to die.
Oh, you, STOP writing that email about how much you disagree with my taste in music. And how I’m not all that “young.”
When I learned the Phantom was returning to Pittsburgh one last time, well, my “SQUEEEE!” could be heard a mile down the ocean. My chance to see the Phantom’s face! My chance to hear the music live again.
I began tweeting immediately about how excited I was and one thing led to another and GOOD NEWS FOR YOU!
I’ve been given permission to offer my twitter followers, facebook friends, and blog readers a chance to buy tickets to the Phantom of the Opera before they go on sale to the general public!

For his final overture in Pittsburgh THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA returns to the Benedum Center to take your breath away. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s international award-winning phenomenon directed by Harold Prince has woven its magical spell over standing room audiences in more than 100 cities worldwide and is now the longest running show in Broadway history. Don’t miss your last chance to experience this timeless story of seduction and despair and the one show The London Sunday Times called “God’s gift to the musical theatre.”

So you have all this week, from now until Sunday, May 9 to buy your tickets to get the best seats in the house. After that, tickets will be available without a promotional code to the general public.
Me, my sisters and my mother will be attending opening night, thanks to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. If you go to opening night, let’s all meet in the lobby before the show and toast with Zimas, because I’m pretty sure they still have them there.
I cannot wait. To hear it. To feel it. To see his hidden face once and for all. Here’s hoping I’ll be all, “It’s so beautiful and haunting in a sexy scarred sort of way!” and not so much, “[gag].”
