To be fair, I’ve never seen Phantom onstage, only the most recent movie with Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler, but The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux (free at Feedbooks) and it is scaaaaary. I suppose it can be since it’s a book, and there’s room for so many more details and a few other characters. I had never heard of the Persian before, and he plays a pretty central character in the book. No doubt the songs are VERY catchy, and Gerry Butler makes for a rather (half-) handsome Phantom, but the book can have more elements of mystery and fear and anxiety and lack of confidence and all that.
