03:31 am - omg it LIVES!!
So, a bit over a year ago, oldphan and I got the random BRILLIANT idea to put together an audiobook recording of Leroux's Phantom of the Opera with different voice actors for each character. We intended to make it absolutely complete, but fully preformed, instead of just read. Not like a radio-play-ified version of the book, just the book itself (and an unabridged version, no de Mattos for us! We used mostly Bair's translation), but a bit more theatrical than your usual Phantom book-on-CD.
We cast the thing, then had to recast the thing, then had to RECAST the thing, until we finally had people that were able to work with the schedules and make the deadlines and now...FINALLY...the Forward and Chapter 1 are DONE! They aren't perfect, but they're our first attempt at this kind of thing, and we decided they're about as good as we can get them. Future chapters will be even better, but these are very enjoyable--So for all you Leroux Lovers out there, come listen and look forward to more very soon!

Links to listen to the chapters are on Oldphan's website:
The Leroux Audiobook Project

You can just listen to them there, or save target as, and put them on your computer or ipod or whatever if you want. They're for the phans' taking! Share with any other phans you know too! Spread them around!
Our editing skills will get better as we continue. Leave your thoughts in the guestbook on the site too, if you can!

eeeee! I'm so excited! I can't wait for Chapter 2 now! :D

Oh! Heart! *snatches to listen later* I was wondering about the fate of this project (it's been, what, a year since you guys started this?), but kept forgetting to ask. =D Yay! I can't wait!
