Re: The End of Abaissé

Also sad the site is closing, even though I don't visit very often anymore. I joined when the movie was released in 2012 and it's hard to believe it's been over six years since then. I agree on the format of forums feeling antiquated (although sometimes I still miss the LiveJournal format) and too v...

Re: December 2019 - the end (??) for the original London production ?!?!?!?!?!

This seriously sucks. I knew it was a possibility when they announced the Queen’s was getting renovated, but given this is the last place in the world where the original production was still playing I was reasonably hopeful that they wouldn’t mess around with it. So much for that.

Re: West End Cast - 2017/2018

The new trailer is out. Honestly, it's...kind of underwhelming. Some nice visuals but not exactly epic.
I wonder if there'll be other edits available.

Re: West End Cast - 2017/2018

Killian/Thaxton doing the confrontation here: http://olivia-y113.tumblr.com/post/170833782939/ Killian still sounds more or less the way he did when he was Enjolras, but Thaxton sounds completely different. I'm listening to a full bootleg of this cast on the train for the first time, and can I just ...

Re: BBC’s ‘Les Misérables’ Miniseries

Lol, when I saw the news item this morning my first reaction was 'oh that's still happening?'. :lol:

Not familiar with the work of any of these actors actually, so will keep an open mind.

ETA: oh wait I recognise Olivia Coleman. Wow she really is in every UK show isn't she.

Re: Wicked?

I just watched this today (Apollo Victoria in London). It's one of those musicals I'd definitely recommend (especially if it's someone new to musical theatre) since it's very dynamic and a lot of fun, but while there's a few catchy songs I'm mostly 'meh' about it. Samantha Thomas was understudying G...

Re: Jesus Christ Superstar

Someone out there actually went to the trouble of dubbing the 2000 movie with the 1996 soundtrack :shock: . It was so well done it took me a moment to realise what was happening.

Needless to say Simon Zealotes was a weird track to watch :lol:.

Re: Jesus Christ Superstar

While I think Jerome Pradon is terrible in it, I'll always choose the 2000 movie over the original movie. Seeing that put me off the show nearly for life! What's the deal with the '73 movie? It obviously has a lot of fans - every Youtube clip of the 2000 movie has comments under it bemoaning how ho...
