    1. Long known as the "Other Phantom", Maury Yeston's version of the Opera ghost was written at the exact time Andrew Lloyd Webber was writing his own version. Yeston was in the process of securing financial backing for his musical when Lloyd Webber announced he was staging an adaption of the Phantom story.

    2. This will forever be known as "the OTHER Phantom," due to the presence of Andrew Lloyd Webber's ubiquitous pop-opera.
