Erika vs The Phantom of the Opera (the character, not the play--COME AT ME ERIK)
The Phantom of the Opera is one of those stories everyone seems to know, even if they've never seen it. It's iconic. Long before I saw the 2004 movie, I could have given you a rough outline of the plot. Until last summer, the movie was the only "real" versi...
