Michael Crawford does go on at times.Ask the veteran singer and actor what made him interested in recording a CD of inspirational songs - his latest CD, "On Eagle's Wings" - and his answer stretches on for almost 20 minutes. After a while, he makes a joke of it, self-mockingly interjecting, "Gosh, I'm so long-winded."Yet no matter how long Crawford goes on, it never seems like he's talking too much. For one thing, the 56-year old Englishman, who is appearing at the Baltimore Arena this Friday, is a natural storyteller, blessed with wit and able to paint a picture so vividly that the listener hangs on every word.

It's a wrenching number of times to relive a heartbreak. When the curtain rises tomorrow at the Majestic Theatre, it will mark the 7,486th time the caped Phantom ascends from the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera to terrorize those within it. Every night, the masked figure falls dangerously in love with the delicate soprano Christine and challenges a stalwart nobleman for her affections. Broadway's Phantom does not survive unscathed, as 11 million theatergoers have seen since Jan. 26, 1988.

HOLLYWOOD -- It is an emotional journey that has now lasted nearly a decade, a journey born in a darkened theater when the Phantom vanishes from his lair leaving behind only a mask for his pursuers to ponder.As the houselights went up, Diane Flogerzi was so overwhelmed by Michael Crawford's performance in Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical "The Phantom of the Opera" that all she wished for was to get back in line at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles and -- like a child who can't get enough of the rides at Disneyland -- immediately experience it all over again.

As an organist at his church, which he calls "the place to be," you can catch Michael Crawford with his hands on the keys just about any Sunday, bringing music to everyone's ears.But once those hands touch the football when ninth-ranked, unbeaten Patterson plays, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Crawford is not an easy catch at all.Witness his back-breaking 47-yard run against City on Friday night, which helped the Clippers to turn a 12-7 deficit into 27 unanswered points. Consider his four touchdowns vs. Southwestern in a 41-6 rout and two more while shellacking Poly by the same score.

TICKETS FOR ''The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber,'' the concert production that opened last evening at the Lyric Opera House, are scarce. Some are still available for the Sunday matinee performance, but most others have been sold.This comes as no shock. As concert productions go, this is one of the best you'll ever see at the Lyric. If some shows are lost there, this one certainly is not. If ever a show was meant to play the Lyric, this is it.Michael Crawford is the star. He has an immense following, something that may surprise those who are not that familiar with stage personalities.

The master of the overblown techno-musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber, sure composes shows that are big and loud. Even a concert version compilation of his greatest hits packs an aural wallop. But is it really music to the ears or just passable pop at high decibel levels?"The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber," which opened at the Lyric Opera House last night and remains there through Sunday, isn't likely to win any converts among those of us who swoon at Sondheim and wince at Webber. Still, the hefty 37-member orchestra, 12 vocalists and star Michael Crawford (aka "The Phantom of the Opera")

Where does Allie Kupec go from here? The freshman Virginia Tech middle hitter has played only one collegiate volleyball tournament (three matches) in her life and already she is being celebrated as the Big East Co-Rookie of the Week and as a member of the Hokie Classic All-tournament team. The 6-foot-1 Kupec (River Hill) barely had time to unpack her bags in Blacksburg, Va., before she put up some big numbers in three straight victories over Miami (Ohio), Campbell and East Tennessee State that carried Virginia Tech to the Hokie Classic title Sunday.

Michael Crawford has always been a fighter. At times, that trait has served him well, beginning 21 years ago when he was born 2 1/2 months premature. At times, it has been a detriment, as was the case when Crawford got into too many scrapes at Canton Middle School and was suspended for several months in the eighth grade. Eventually, Crawford kept his battles confined to the football field or the classroom, and he has won most of them. Now in his fourth year as a member of the Virginia Tech football team, Crawford awaits the possibility of his biggest fight to date.

People like to spend time outside during the summer. That's why outdoor amphitheaters like Pier Six, the Merriweather Post Pavilion and the Nissan Pavilion at Stone Ridge traditionally dominate local concert business during the warm-weather months.This year, though, some of the season's hottest acts are going indoors. Anyone hoping to catch "Titanic" diva Celine Dion, Led Zeppelin vets Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, R&B superstar Janet Jackson or alternarock heroine Tori Amos better be ready to put up with air conditioning, because these shows will be playing indoors at the recently opened MCI Center in downtown Washington.
