This wasn’t all cliché though, in fact not at all. Danny kinda thinks he is the Phantom of the Opera, or at least life imitates art. Not entirely literally, he doesn’t actually live in a sewer and act all stalky but he is a campy thesp and he does have some troubles with the laydees.
This was an extremely likeable narrative and by the end we were all rooting for him, very good.
And he got H on stage and sung to her, hehe.
