Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

Ditto for me, first script readthrough on the 8th and nothing before then!

I was going to go to Cuba but then I didn't. ... March, I guess.

Happy New Year, everyone! I’m in New Zealand now, and it’s already almost the third of January. It’s fun being almost a full day ahead of my usual area. :D

I'd love to go to Cuba before it gets modernized and touristy. I understand it's a time capsule. Of course their Internet service is strictly controlled and people are still being thrown in prison for wrong thinking and such--maybe when it is opened up some of that will change. It's certainly a holdout of the old Communist style.

I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.

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.

Another year older...oh Happy New Year everyone! Currently speculating alot about a what if 1992/93 Les Mis movie musical. Finally found one great cast choice.

Oooooh that's great! I've been listening to audios from the tour. I really like Jillian and Phoenix as Cosette and Éponine, and I've heard good things about the Marius too.

I think they mentioned it in the TAC documentary that they had the plan for a movie musical at that time. Apparently it never became a thing for whatever reason, but it's fun to think about what-ifs! What's the casting choice you have in mind?

There's a small thread about a 92 Les Mis film here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1976
I might expand this or make a new thread for my own personal fun collecting all available information about the movie that never was and what remains of it on stage to this day. Owning the screenplay draft and looking at Napier's set designs, the cast was and still is a big ? to me. I can't think of actors/actresses capable of filling the roles in that timeframe-except for...

Bette Midler

Mme Thenardier!

Love that idea! She'd be better than HBC!

I'm going to try and stream my production tonight if anyone is interested :). Hop into the Abaisse discord if you are not already there -https://discord.gg/wkHBz7C
