Re: Language learning

I’m not sure which other languages would have been commonly spoken in France during the Revolution/Terror/Rebellion eras... Sorry I couldn’t be of more help! Just got back from New Zealand, and I love how the indigenous Maori language is so ingrained in daily life there — most museum displays, guide...

Re: Greetings from a fellow crazy Les Miz fan :D

Welcome back! I’m James, and I live in Hawaii. I don’t think I’ve met you before, since I joined in 2012. But in any case, it’s awesome to meet you! I know a tiny bit of German mostly because of German-language musicals (mainly the ones Michael Kunze and Sylvester Levay worked on, plus German transl...

Re: BBC’s ‘Les Misérables’ Miniseries

I love David Oyelowo and am thrilled that he’s getting this opportunity! Kinda wish he was playing Valjean instead, as that’s more in line with the other roles I’ve seen him play; but then again, he does have the range for either. I know Olivia Colman and I’ve heard of the actors for Valjean, Fantin...

Happy New Year, everyone! I’m in New Zealand now, and it’s already almost the third of January. It’s fun being almost a full day ahead of my usual area. :D

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Happy Holidays to all! Hope you all have a fantastic time (and perhaps get to see some stage shows)!

I'm getting to visit my sister, her husband, and their son in New Zealand for New Year's... So excited! :D

Re: Star Wars!

So, has anyone else gotten to see Episode VIII: The Last Jedi? I saw it on opening day... Want to catch it a couple more times before I decide where I’d ultimately rank it in the series; but overall, I really enjoyed it! I gather that not all fans felt that way, though. What do Abaissé members who a...

Re: Political Posts

Well, hey! Alabama managed to elect their first Democratic candidate to the Senate in over 20 years, largely because his Republican opponent was alleged to have molested underage girls (and that’s putting aside his pretty clear and obvious racism and homophobia). So aye, cheers for Alabama voters, t...

Re: Political Posts

So, all but one of the Senate Republicans voted for a tax reform bill that nobody had read in its entirety before the vote, because the bill is 479 pages long with last-minute additions and revisions handwritten in the margins and was only sent out to the Senators a few hours before the vote. The Re...

Ooh, I look forward to seeing the video! :D (Still need to track out the audio from the production I went to earlier this month, as well... :oops: )

And happy day-after-Thanksgiving in the US now. Hehe

Re: The Phantom of the Opera

So, they’ve announced that the 30th anniversary Broadway Phantom won’t be Ramin. Instead, they’re bringing back... Peter Jöback.

And the string of unimpressive actors in the title role in NYC continues. :?

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Yay for epic closing nights! Even if they weren't as good as they could have been... still, fantastic job, and I'm glad you got recordings of it even if it ended up not being the best performance of the run. :D And niche references always make things better. Well, usually... maybe. XD I saw my forme...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Interesting... I was just talking with a friend a few days ago about how I hadn't heard anything about the BBC/Davies version in a while, and wondered if it was still on. Guess this answers that question! Finally got tickets for my alma mater's production. Remember, remember, the 5th of November. (H...

Re: The Phantom of the Opera

Some news from the Broadway production: James Barbour is leaving the title role, and someone new (or not-so-new) will be coming in for the 30th anniversary in New York. Laird Mackintosh will cover the role from Barbour’s final performance on Dec. 23 until the new full-time Phantom comes in. And ther...

Re: Les Misérables 2017 Swedish Production

Oh wow, this was fascinating to read. Some rather neat ideas... I liked the thought of the barricade boys still lying dead onstage for "Turning" and then getting up for "Empty Chairs." Though yeah, having them still be there for "Javert's Suicide" is a bit odd. (Credit ...
