Criticism

I hope no one's going to shoot me for starting this blasphemous topic. :oops: So, here on this forum we all love Les Mis dearly and agree that it's one of the best novels ever written. But have you heard of or got any criticism of Les Mis? It could be about any aspect of the work. For example, one o...

Re: Ukrainian productions?

The Russians had wanted to do Les Mis for some time but unfortunately so many problems came in the way. They gave up their first attempt due to the financial crisis. There was a plan for a Russian concert production of Les Mis last year which was canceled at the last minute for some reason. Good new...

Belated happy new year! :D Belated Happy New Year! Let's hope 2018 beats 2017. And this is the year I'm going to see LM live! If all goes well I will get to see the touring production in Dallas, Texas. Oooooh that's great! I've been listening to audios from the tour. I really like Jillian and Phoeni...

Re: Star Wars!

I can't see TLJ in the cinema until January though I...kind of have seen it via spoilers. I don't know how much of what I've heard is true, but if all of that is true, I don't think I'm mentally prepared for this movie. :shock:

Re: Les Miz Fanlit

*revives thread 7 years later* I just saw this post in the movie section about a TV adaptation of a Vietnamese novel adaptation of Les Mis. Googled what this "Ngọn Cỏ Gió Đùa" is and google took me to this list of Les Mis adaptations on wikipedia. Found some quite interesting ones on the l...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Tecklenburg has just announced the cast for their production next year. I have mixed feelings about this tbh. There are people who I like and who I...don't like that much. They didn't announce the actors for Éponine and the Thenardiers somehow. I'm desperately speculating on some of my favs though ...

Re: Political Posts

As an economics major, I agree with most of what Havvy has said. Actually the current situation reflects perfectly how the job market is functioning. Job hunting is harder for some majors simply because the demand for such positions is lower. STEM majors find jobs much easier and earn much more beca...

Re: Of boys and bullets

I would argue that the future of any of the Thenardier children is based on the economic position of their parents at any given time. Gavroche is pretty much cut loose from the family, but for Éponine and Azelma it looks like where mom and dad go, they go. (Probably because (questionably) attractiv...

Re: Les Misérables 2017 Swedish Production

This is so interesting. Thank you for the review and the photos, Morbidmuch! Forgive me for saying this but Emmi's makeup is really awful. :( She looks like a boring old lady (even older than Fantine seriously) with that wig. I'd be very happy if they had given her a blond wig like the one she had w...

Hehe... I had my birthday on the 18th (wow, I’m almost 30...), and a few days prior, I got this in the mail. No card or return address other than the company, which weirded me out a bit... but it turns out that my sister ordered it for me and intended for a card to be included; the company just for...

Re: Of boys and bullets

Has anyone ever thought about what would become of the Thenardier children if they grew up? For example would Azelma become another Madame Thenardier when she grew up? She wasn't evil beyond any point of redemption (she was a kid after all) but since she was little all she learned from her dad was h...

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...
