Re: How different Les Mis is when it is translated to another language and culture?

I just found a Chinese version of ECAET , performed by a Chinese singer who irrc had actually been on Broadway. There's no Chinese production of Les Mis so this is just the singer's personal work I guess, but I'd like to share the translation anyway. The Chinese lyrics are written in a very poetic s...

Re: The Phantom of the Opera

Just watched a full video from the Swedish revival of POTO. I think...I need help. (No actually, don't help me. I've "passed the point of no return". :mrgreen: ) It feels so unreal how my tastes have changed from two or three years ago. For me Phantom has always been "just that musica...

Re: Non-English musicals?

Here's a new (well actually it's been a while) audio of Robert Marien singing "Soliloquy" from the French Musical Gala in Shanghai last month! :D

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Bought tickets to see Les Mis in Sweden earlier today, and I'm so excited. :D Oh my gosh I'm so excited for you too! :shock: I hope you'll enjoy it, and please post a review after that for us non-Swedish people! Emmi Christensson will be playing Cosette right? I'm so madly in love with her Christin...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

So I just read this interview with Philip Quast in which he talks a little about his decision to quit. It seems that he simply doesn't want to do it anymore, which I completely understand, and I'm glad that he's very honest about this. Performing at such a high frequency is taxing, and he indeed isn...

Re: Best and worst of the Schools Edition

I feel like this is a good thing to start off with to show how *not* to do Les Mis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVEYyNybSnU Ah Blacklick, we barely knew thee! One nitpick that I consistently have with School's Eds is when Fantine only wears a mop cap after her hair gets cut, as opposed to weari...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I watched Follies last night, I saw Philip Quast singing live, and I was absolutely giddy. The rest of the cast is fantastic as well, but I admit he was the reason I bought the ticket. Sadly I didn't catch him at the stage door. I took too long to find where it was, and unlike Les MIs they don't ne...

Re: Jesus Christ Superstar

What parts of it didn't you get? 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! Hehe, I've heard good things about JCS for quite a long time but only actually decided to watch the movie when ...

Jesus Christ Superstar

I watched the 2000 movie for the first time last night and oh Jesus...I didn't get it at all. I'm not being critical. In fact I like most of the music but feel really confused by the plot, like, I sort of know what's happening but I don't get what the authors have intended to do with that? :shock: A...

Re: West End Cast - 2017/2018

Just read a review of the performance last night. Here are two things I think you really need to know: First, Killian did a nose bopping thing too. But guess what? He did it to Fantine. ... :shock: :lol: Second, he nearly missed his entrance in the factory scene. When he said "come on ladies se...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

The business of musical theatre isn't that big (as shown by the many overlaps between big shows) so it's not impossible. I can't think of any Marius/Cosette or Éponine/Gavroche examples at the top of my head, but I'm still a fetus in the fandom compared to some so I'm sure some of the more adult fa...

Evita

How do you like the musical? I've only listened to an official recording and watched the movie. Like the music but dislike the show. Going by what I've seen it's like...Elisabeth but with misogynist filters. Some of my Internet friends have watched it on stage recently and they don't like it either,...
