He should get Norm Lewis to come do ArtSpeak sometime...
*cough*... (I have, erm, kind of a huge crush on Mr. Lewis...)
Hugh ever so cheerfully informed the lady, "She...um....understudies the chandelier!"

So, uh, I actually laughed out loud at this...

There's something slightly similar about their voices, except that MC's is more breathy and untrained sounding. Maybe that's why Hugh Panaro was such a great Phantom!

And you may have posted it somewhere else, but... your new avatar? Lol.
As for Lestat, I'm a conflicted fan of the books who has some hatred for Anne Rice but a burning love for her characters and her writing style. I thought Hugh was genius as Lestat but I really violently loathed Drew's Armand. I also don't love most of the music in the show. Or what they did to Marius. But I still kind of like it in a... in a cringe-y way. Hugh was wonderful.
