Christian - $750?!?!?!?!?!?! Ok, I worship Sarah, but not THAT much.
Andrea - Yes, this is quite a deviation, but it's a passion I've had just as long.
Yes, Tim Rice joined up with Elton for all of his Disney stuff, I know that for sure... (Lion King, etc). Andrew Lloyd has pretty much faded into the background though, you're right. Maybe he accomplished everything he set out to do. Oddly enough, Phantom is the only one of his musicals I've ever seen... I haven't even seen Cats yet, and that plays in Calgary almost every year! lol
