Ever seen Phantom of the Opera on Broadway or on film? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it. I think we first saw it when we were kids. It’s a pretty spooky story about a tortured hipster that dwells beneath the Paris Opera House. When new management comes in, things start getting a little crazy. What unfolds is a tale of murder, chandeliers, love and toy monkeys! The heroine of the story is the talented Christine Daae who rises from chorus girl to Prima Donna. Orphaned as a young girl, she grew up in the opera as a ballerina. Anyway, just netflix it, it’s good.

Everybody knows the story of My Fair Lady. Two bored aristocrats happen upon a girl who might be a little down on her luck but because of the grit of the street they can’t see how pretty she is. They decide to take her under their wing as some kind of game or sport. A few scenes later they throw her in a nice dress and suddenly they fall in love because she’s beautiful. Rags to riches, blah blah blah. Maybe that was a little harsh, but that’s the basic story. Let’s watch Eliza’s transformation through the story, shall we?
