Re: Best translation for a beginner?

When I was at the bookstore choosing which translation to buy, I read through several different chapters to compare and contrast, and found that F/M was really the way to go. Donougher, though it had extensive footnotes, was far too modern, whereas Wilbour was too archaic. I think F/M strikes that p...

Re: The New Broadway Revival - Starting March 2014

Actually, no. I really enjoyed Chris McCarrell's performance. His voice was a little strange at first, but I really felt the boyish energy that Marius needs from him, and he did a great Empty Chairs. His acting was better than his singing, which is fine in my opinion.

Re: The New Broadway Revival - Starting March 2014

Just saw it! I thought it was honestly fantastic. John Owen-Jones was an excellent Valjean, doing an especially good job with the Soliloquy. And Hayden Tee is now one of my favorite Javerts - the Suicide was probably the best I've ever seen it done, along with Confrontation. Other standouts were the...

Re: What is MOST complete filmed version?

Those sound excellent! I suppose the longer the adaptations are, the more material they can cover.

This is actually the movie I was referring to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOmcrYcVqZ8 (link goes to the trailer). It's British, directed by Glenn Jordan.

Re: Unnecessary deaths?

I did some research and found that the one I was thinking of was the 1978 TV movie, which ends with the wedding and Valjean living. I haven't seen it, though; I'm just going off of Wikipedia, so I have no idea how accurate that is. But now I'm interested... Getting back to the idea of him living, I ...

Re: Unnecessary deaths?

I'm fairly certain there's a movie version that just ends with the Marius/Cosette wedding, and Valjean DOESN'T die...but I can't remember which one...

Re: Hello!

Nice to meet you both! Yeah, I'm very grateful to have gotten tickets. I hadn't yet seen this production of it because I assumed it would be around for a couple more years, at the very least. And thank you! :)

Re: Hello!

Lovely to meet you! My favorite character is Javert. I find his personality and role in the story fascinating, because he's not sadistic, or even really intentionally bad - he's just the antagonist. If I had to pick a favorite actor who portrayed him, it would be Norm Lewis. And yeah, I'm super psyc...
