Comments: Looking back on the time in 2008 when I saw Disney PIXAR's 'Wall•E', and the first thing the viewer hears is the voice of Michael Crawford in 'Hello, Dolly!' (Since theb I've been a fan if that musical.) It still makes me smile that I became such a fan of 'Phantom' such a long time ago, and have refallen in love with Michael since! When reading his book, I saw someome who went through good times and tragedies, and the philosophy of always cherishing the good. That, and his smile, have been helping me through a trying time in my life; But I have faith that it will get better. I light up when I hear Michael's voice, and I feel so fortunate to have his music and humor in my life. ?? I thank him for his humbleness and goodness.

God bless, ~Erin Flayhan

Comments: As a child some mothers was a firm favourite, however the true love affair started when I saw Barnum! I was 15 yes old, and would travel into central London and pay £1 to stand at the back and watch. I think I saw it 17 times. At the age of 16, I read an article in the guardian about Phantom and my friend begged her dad to let us use his credit card to book tickets ... we got tickets for the 5th night, centre of dress circle... a memory I will never forget . That's when my scrap book started... sadly I don't still have it, but as a teenager I was obsessed. Two years ago I travelled to London to see the go between ... and got to meet my man.. Next year will be very special, and my daughter is performing in one of the first school performances of Phantom in Australasia.. how special will that be... that's why I'm thinking of Michael right now. What an amazing opportunity to perform in such a fantastic musical. Michael will always be my favourite phantom

Comments: Hi Mr. Crawford, my name is Audrey, and it is such an honor to be able to sign your guestbook!

My main reason for writing is to let you know how much I have come to love your music. Your Christmas CD “A Christmas Album” has grown to be my favorite CD of ALL time, and I listen to it year-round. A few years back, I went through a really hard time with anxiety and OCD. But every time I would stop and listen to your Christmas CD when I was feeling the littlest bit anxious, it was like hearing God pour out His love on me through your words about Jesus and His birth. I cannot begin to thank God enough for using you to encourage me through those dark times. Christmas has always been my favorite time of year and your album magnifies it for me. Thank you!

My second reason for writing is to tell you that about four or five years ago I had the privilege of meeting an old friend of yours, Laurie Gayle Stephenson. She was a guest singer at a private dinner for a Bible study of all things. :) She sang, gave her testimony about knowing the Lord Jesus Christ, and then mentioned that she worked on Broadway when she was younger. I believe God was stirring my heart to ask her a question, and I was so shocked when her answer was “yes!” I had asked her if she had ever met Michael Crawford while working on Broadway, and she said “Honey, I worked with Michael!” I was absolutely SO thrilled to find that out! Someone that I was talking to had actually worked with my favorite singer! It was such a wonderful moment, and I am so thankful to have gotten to meet Ms. Stephenson. :)

I also hope that I will be given the privilege to meet you oneday too, Mr. Crawford. But if not here on this earth, then I believe that someday we shall meet in the Presence of the One Who will make all things new.

God Bless you, Mr. Crawford, and thanks again! :) ~Audrey

Comments: I listened and listened to the tape of Phantom, fell in love with him even.....your music moves me, touches me deep within my heart.

Saw the Phantom, but not with you in it, sadly, though I did see you in Barnum.

Comments: A group of us were just reminiscing and I was thinking to myself, Frank Spencer was a modern-day Buster Keaton. Imagine my surprise to see on your time-line that you'd worked with him.

Loved your sense of timing, and like Basil Fawlty, the episodes you made are the stuff of legend.

You're an all-right singer too!

Comments: Hello Michael-I first became a huge fan after hearing you in Phantom. I was absolutely mesmerized by your voice. Being from the Midwest, exposure to musical theater was extremely limited, so the original London cast recording was my way of experiencing your performance. I also enjoyed your performance in Hello Dolly. I am currently reading your autobiography and find it quite delightful. Via the internet, I have been able to see you in Some Mother's, which is brilliant. I also admire your charity work and the compassion you show to others. I wish you love, peace, health, and happiness.

Comments: Hi Michael, just watching some of your "Some Mother's... shows and they are hilarious. Your comedy and its topics were ahead of its time.

You look like you did many of your own stunts as well, maybe except for the roller skating! Classic English television at its very best.

Comments: Michael, Posted in Dec.2016 so maybe I am not allowed a second post. However, saw the Phantom in another showing and there is no disputing--you cannot be surpassed. I am a huge fan and have tried many times to contact MCIFA to be allowed access to updates. I own many cds, Barnum autobiography etc.etc. I am overwhelmed at all the hard work and self -discipline you have shown. The Go-Between was a huge success from what I have read, but not a surprise. I would love to see you bring it to the states. Am I out of line to request a signed picture? One more thing--no one could possibly sing Gethsemene as you do. Vivian Benshoff

Comments: May I sign the book twice? I did once in Dec. I took my daughter and grand daughter to Atlanta yesterday to see the Phantom of the Opera. As I said in the earlier posting, I saw you Michael in New York twice. The road shows are done well, but NOBODY can come close to your performance as the Phantom. I have so many of your cd's, your autobiography, the DVD Barnum which I love and I watch and listen to clips on the internet. One last comment--my favorite cd is the one on which you sing Gethsemene. I never cease to weep. Any chance of coming over the pond with The Go Between? This 80 year old fan would get there someway!

Comments: While I was never lucky enough to see him as the phantom I did get a chance to see him in EFX here in vegas and also the concert he did in 98' at mgm gand here in vegas as well. He was amazing in both, and I also will never forget getting to meet him at the mgm grand for fans to have him sign stuff, I waited for hours in that huge line, but you were so nice and signed my phantom book. And now at 33 years of age I have my own kids now that I am introducing you to them as the phantom as well. Thank you for always being such a bright spot in my life.

Comments: Hello to the MCIFA, and to Mr. Crawford!

I would just like to say to Michael, your work has absolutely inspired me in every way. Your performances in everything from Hello, Dolly! to The Phantom of the Opera are brilliant and incredibly nuanced, and as a 16 year old aspiring actor, I would love nothing so much in the world as the chance to meet you and thank you for your work, which was the catalyst for me becoming interested in musical theatre. The Phantom of the Opera means more to me than the air that I breathe, and each time I hear you sing something from the role, my heartbeat quickens and I feel like I am home. I know that it is a slim chance that I could ever be honored with the role of the Phantom, but if I ever do, it will be with respect to the deep understanding and love that you had for the man, and how much he meant to you, because as a young man who knows what he wants to do for the rest of his life, I have no one to thank but you. You have my sincere gratitude and reverence for the wonderful person that you are.

I hope you are very well, and I wish you a (soon to be) Happy 75th Birthday!


P.S. I was hoping that I might be able to send Michael a fan letter and, if it isn't too much trouble, a photograph for him to sign. What address can this be made out to?

Comments: I have been fortunate to see MC in Phantom twice in New York. Now 80 yrs old I have rediscovered him. I own many cds and dvds and have read his autobio. His talent and energy just amaze me. I have watched Barnum over and over and am on my third reading of autobio. I also want to commend him on the way he lives his life as an ardent Christian. I am sure his daughters and grandchildren are very proud of him. I would like to see him update his autobio to the present.

Comments: I still have the letter and autographed picture Michael sent me in 2004, when he was rehearsing "The Woman in White", and I treasure them. I was inspired by him even more over the last year, because I did a painting of the Phantom's mask. I would love to send Michael the painting, seeing as I can't deliver it in person. I hope someone can help me out here. Thanks!

Comments: When I think of my childhood and the tv series that we all loved, I think of Frank Spencer in 'Some Mothers Do 've em' like a big brother. This was one of the few shows that were aired in Cameroon tv and just like in UK, Frank became a household name. We even learned how to brake and spoil just like him! Awesome. I love the episode in which Frank went to attend the human resource program for five days! Not forgetting the one in which he had to call a doctor for Betty's mother. Since last week, I have been watching some great episodes of the series and it is amazing how entertaining it still is and how much of my childhood I can still remember. Thanks Michael Crawford for putting a laugh on our faces all these years and know that just like in the UK, there is a generation in Cameroon that will never forget you. Thanks.

If it is possible that you did do another series or a Christmas special it would be very well received by everyone . for me it brought back wonderful memories of seeing Some mothers the first time around [new episodes at the time ] I have ordered the box set of dvds im probably not alone in that . To see you with Michelle Dotrice again was great and the actress who played Jessica was brilliant . thank you

Comments: "The Games" and "Hello, Goodbye" introduced me to you when I was growing up. Both left an impression on me, possibly because I identified with the awkward fellow on screen. I don't understand why somehow those two movies have not been better received. I did not know about your singing background, but was quite astounded when I heard you singing songs from Phantom of the Opera on a CD that my wife bought. You do have a wonderful voice. Thank you.
