Phantom Friday


♪ WELCOME BACK. IT IS TIME FOR “PHANTOM FRIDAY. ” RYAN: WE ARE SEEING WHAT IT TAKES TO CREATE “THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.” THE COMFORTER MOVES THE CITY ELEMENTS FOR THE TOUR WHETHER IT IS RIGGING, DROPS, CONSTRUCTION. WE INSTRUCT LOCAL CARPENTERS HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE ITEMS. THE SHOW TRAVELS IN 20 TRAILERS. OUR LOADING PROCESSES THREE DAYS LONG. WE HIRE STAGEHANDS DEPENDING ON THE MARKET AND THE CHALLENGES. SERVING THE MARKET INVOLVES VERIFYING DIMENSIONS THAT CAN SHOW THE DOORS ARE BIG ENOUGH. THE CHANDELIER WEIGHS ABOUT 2000 POUNDS. THERE’S ANOTHER THING THAT WEIGHS 2000 POUNDS. IT IS A DARKER TAKE ON THE STORY. THE PRODUCTION UTILIZES ROUGHLY 85 MOVING LIGHT. THE MAIN ELEMENT ARE TWO LARGE FALLS TRACKING — TWO LARGE WALL TRACKING AROUND THE STAGE. THE OTHER LARGE PIECES ARE THE TWO UPPER BOXES. THEY ARE 24 FEET LONG. ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT TORI IS BEING ABLE TO TRAVEL ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND CHECK OUT THE CULTURE AND FIND A NEW LOCAL BREWERY OR RESTAURANT. ♪ “THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA” RUNS FROM NOVEMBER 15 UNTIL THE 26 AT THE WATERBURY PALACE THEATER. RYAN: YOU CAN GET YOUR TICKETS ONLINE. I KNOW YOU HAVE SEEN IT A BUNCH OF TIMES, RIGHT? YES, IT IS A GREAT SHOW. I HAVE NOT SEEN THE LOCAL VERSION. IT IS A GREAT SHOW.
