When: March 6th, 2004
I saw Julie perform
on March 6th in NYC. Her performance was beyond amazing. After seeing and hearing countless Christines, Julie Hanson
is by far the best I've ever seen. Her acting is phantastic, as well as her singing. I absolutely loved her "Twisted
Every Way", and especially loved her in the final scene. She portays a young, innocent, and loveable Christine. She acted
so well opposite Hugh Panaro, who was also wonderful. This was definately the best performance and portrayal of any Christine
I've ever seen, no exaggerations whatsoever. I truly hope to see her again soon, because she made that day the most
memorable of my life.
Ms. Hanson is the definition of innocence and beauty on and off
the stage. I've never seen such a dedicated performer, for Julie isn't just dedicated to her art, she shows a dedication
to her fans and admirers like I've never seen with any broadway actor, and I give her all of my respect for it. Julie
Hanson doesn't just play the role, she *is* Christine. When she is on stage, there isn't the slightest trace that she
is an actor, she is the role, and she delivers the most convincing performance I've ever had the pleasure of sitting in the
Majestic Theatre and watching. For this reason, I've made the Majestic Theatre my home-away-from-home, that is when
I can afford the trip from South Caronlina :-). This girl is my inspiration, and I forever encourage her to stay the
sweet heart that she is, for it brings indescribable joy to her fans, and all phantom-fans who've ever heard her name.
I hope that if it is her wish, that her run with this show be until it closes, for I will never cease to enjoy her amazing
performance as Christine.
