Performer Elimination Game -- Valjean Edition

Postby deHavilland » Sun Dec 11, 2016 9:08 pm

We've had a couple of elimination games run through Abaisse at one point or another, but with a bunch of new conversations about "what performers are good" and "who are some new people I would enjoy?" popping up, I figure it's time for a Performer-Specific round!

Below are a list of actors who have played the role of Valjean in an English-speaking production -- I went with a pretty big variety, but limited it to English productions for ease of comparison -- and links to some version of their performance. There are a couple strategies you can use to acquaint yourself with them, you could sit and watch them all in one go, or you could watch a couple and let the game carry along, taking time occasionally to watch new performances as people are eliminated. Feel free to check out other videos and not just the ones linked here! The point is to check out some performers you may not have heard yet and at the same time help choose "Abaisse's Favorite English-Language Valjean (as Determined By a Forum Elimination Game)."

• Each performer starts with 10 points: comment below with a +1 next to one you like/would want to see win and a -1 to another you like less or want to see have points taken away from so that your favorite can win.
• No double posting. Wait until someone else has made a post before you post again.
• Once a performer reaches zero, they are eliminated and removed from the list.
• Please structure your posts by adjusting the order to match the score and make sure to add the point as you give them or deduct them.
• You do not need to preserve the links on your posts, as long as they remain here in the main post, they are accessible to everyone.

Yes, you can repeatedly vote for the same person whether it's an up-vote or a down-vote, but you have to let at least one person vote before you vote again.

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.

Yep, exactly! As the list gets smaller, it's easier to focus on individual performers and spend some time thinking about who you want to upvote/downvote! And to help with Acaila's problem of not being able to focus while Alfie Boe is still on the board...

(And a +1 to Robert Marien for being my first Valjean.)

Oh, cool! Thanks Havvy. The number of people I want to upvote may not be the same as those I want to downvote, so I might have to repeatedly +/- someone at a certain point.
Translation: 23623 is going to dump all her excess votes to Rauch and Colm so be prepared for that! 8) :twisted:

I didn't even bother to downvote Alfie because he's going to be out of this list pretty soon. Same with upvoting JOJ because half of the fandom is going to do that. :lol:
