Yeah, so I've let this place go for a few years. Life kinda gets in the way. Layoffs, moving, depression, other health issues...now all in the past. So I'm trying to update stuff.

Added a new section under OnStage. Called Playbills. Based on my collection, only. I'm typing out the casts, including any inserts, or autographs I may have acquired on them. The goal is to have images of all the playbills, and, at least for the US casts, the page with all the head shots on them.  So far I'm working on the finishing touches of the 2nd US National Tour. What's completed, except for the images, are the West End, UK Tour, Broadway & 1st National Tour.

Another section under OnStage is going to be a list of the cities the US tour stopped in, for how long, and any interesting factoids I found out about the tour when it was coming to that city. The early days of the US tour were the most fun to read about in the press. They were so excited. Had tons of newspaper articles, pictures ads. As the new century began, and the tour had been around a while, the articles become "meh, Phantom's back. Same old, same old." Highly amusing stuff.
