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.

Considering how much Boe-love there is out there, you might have your work cut out for you!

Are there still any international productions going on since Dubai ended (not counting amateur ones)? Two years ago it felt like it was everywhere, on tour, on Broadway, in Oz (and scheduled to go to Asia). (Okay I just had a quick look at the website and it appears it's still on in Japan, Korea and Spain?).

The show is still going strong in London. I walk past that theatre pretty much every day and the 'House Full' sign still comes out pretty regularly (although it's not that big a theatre). The giant mural on the side of the building also boasts about LM being the world's longest-running musical, so maybe they'll keep it running purely so PotO can't overtake it :lol:

It's been on pretty constantly in Japan hasn't it? I don't know that it's been the same production all through, but it seems to be omnipresent there.

I really should stop crying over this but I really can't...I'm always just one step behind Les Mis. Missed it when it was in Australia and missed it again when it was on Broadway due to some stupid travel plan clashes. :( OK sorry for the rant. I don't think Les Mis is in Spain though. I did a bit of research last year before I went to Spain and was so disappointed that I couldn't see Les Mis anywhere. Is it a new production I haven't heard of? (If so...excuse me while I cry for missing another opportunity to watch Les Mis.)

Oh man, I've had worse! A friend once told me that she liked Nick Jonas as Marius... :shock: Also another friend said she believed the 25AC was the best production ever because as an anniversary it must be.

Random fun fact: I went to an interview last week and was asked "Tell me about your favorite book?" You all know what would happen next. :mrgreen:
Not kidding, that interview question kept me happy for the entire week. :D

Acaila's gonna be cutting it preeeetty close, but I have every intention of living to be over a hundred anyway as my great grandmother did. *spoken as I indulge in Pizza Hut for the eighth time this week*

I had a cousin (distant) who lived to 102, purely on 19th and 20th century food, from back when "milkfat" was a good thing and the more cream and butter in your recipes the better. Somehow she stayed a skinny little thing and was driving on the highway until about age 97. "I feel so free," she said, scaring the daylights out of the family. I wish I'd had the sense to ask her about the past.

My great aunt lived to 99 and two thirds. Surely I can make it to 98! (not that anybody on either side has got anywhere close to that except for Auntie Jen of course)

New topic but I think it belongs here with miscellaneous. I looked up the hunters in the woods in Euryanthe which Hugo says is the most beautiful piece of music there is.

It just sounded like music to me. Rats, I was hoping for a transcendent experience.

I'll be 86 when the 100th hits. Considering I can't even consider myself an adult yet, that's a weird thought.

Really? I really like it, especially the higher tenor line (dem top As). Having said that I can't agree with Hugo, not when the Allegri Miserere exists.
Though, as I'm finding out, the Miserere is a right bugger to teach.

I can barely imagine what the 100th would be like. At least we've all got a fighting chance of being around for the 50th!

Right, what can we chain Marius to to make sure she doesn't leave us again?
