A few thoughts:
So I'm watching Chris Jacobsen as Valjean. (and he is amazing but I've fangirled him enough (yeah right there's no such thing as enough for him <3)).....
When he is announced as an understudy for John Own-Jones, there was a little bit of muttering and tsking. I've seen it happen that understudy announcements have been applauded, which at the time we felt was weird, but maybe that's the sort of thing that should be encouraged?
Has anyone seen any notable behaviour around understudy announcements?
Also, is it my imagination or does Javert in the 25th anniversary production not have long hair in the prologue?
EDIT: Also, holy moly I forgot Petit Gervaise was in the redirected version
