Re: West End Cast - 2013/2014

I feel the exact same way ! Tam's beginning is so, SO awesome and the physical portions just get progressively better and better. The "fight" scene between them is so great. Don't get me wrong, I love Hadley Fraser, but I can never respect a Confrontation with screaming. :? These guys are ...

Re: West End Cast - 2013/2014

Torontocolm! :D Haven't seen you in these parts in ages! Glad you enjoyed it so much :) I'm a big fan of Rauch and Mutu as well, though I thought Dorsey was decent if not amazing when I was there. Glad you liked Adam Linstead as Grantaire, he's my new favourite :) Rob Houchen was a good Marius. I h...

Re: Community and School Productions

I had to beg and petition and threaten my director to put the full Confrontation in our high school version. I played Javert and couldn't let that song go. I love it too much. Our version was lots of fun and well-acclaimed, although our school was caught in some trouble for letting me jump from a ba...

Re: West End Cast - 2013/2014

Saw this show Friday afternoon- truly awesome!!! Worth the seven year wait to see it on stage again. Rauch is a freaking beast. Every note of every song is top notch, and he portrays the character of Jean Valjean so well. English isn't even his first language! He is my 2nd favorite Valjean now! Tam ...

Re: Comedic anti-climatic moments

I just got back from a production being staged at my old high school, and it had some... interesting technical difficulties. Cosette nearly got the curtain dropped on her when she came in after ECAET (was the curtain operator a M/É shipper?), for one, and at the end of the sewer scene one of the gu...

Re: Comedic anti-climatic moments

Just thought of one today-

Javert is about to jump off the bridge when Valjean arrives, talks him out of suicide, and they share a tearful embrace.

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Taking a vacation down to Florida away from school, away from family, away from my life and I'm sitting at a baseball game and what is the organist playing on the PA? Master of the House. Unbelievable.

Re: Sports Discussion Thread

Has Canada ever been in a World Cup? I doubt it. We really need some more soccer players.

If we're going to talk about football, my allegiance is to Chelsea! Long live Lampard!

Re: Your Stage History?

That record of playing them both is incredible. Valjean, Marius and Thenardier next on the list to complete the lot then? I have no plans of participating in more productions but yes, that would be quite a collection. Unfortunately I can't play 2/3. Valjean: I can't sing Bring Him Home unless its a...

Re: Your Stage History?

Let's go way back- In Kindergarten I starred as, "The Rainbow" in my kindergarten graduation extravaganza. Highlights included the whole class singing Rainbow Connection, and me waving a rainbow ribbon back and forth. Skipping ahead to my next role, in 5th grade, I played the Tin Man in th...

The Numbers Game: Who Am I? In other languages

In the USA and England (or any English speaking country for that matter), we know Jean Valjean as Prisoner 24601. What would "Who Am I?" be without the iconic 2-4-6-0-11111111111111111 at the end? However, in Spanish- we are introduced to Prisoner 23623, and 2-4-6-0-1 is replaced with a re...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Just bought a ticket for the London production of Les Mis at the end of June! Score! :mrgreen: That's great. Wish I could see it again. Is it the first time you'll have seen it on the West End? I've seen plenty of school/college productions but this is the first professional production I've seen si...
