I haven’t seen the movie or play or heard the music, but I have read the book. It’s actually really good. I probably wouldn’t be able to watch the whole movie, but the book was exciting, and not nearly as romancy as the movie sounds.
Oh, and I’ve seen the cartoon version back in middle school. I thought it was funny how they included the flying skull or whatever–can’t remember if it was in the book, but it was a funny sight to see, nonetheless.
