I'm listening to a full bootleg of this cast on the train for the first time, and can I just say how much I dislike Karis Jack's Éponine? I honestly struggle to find anything I like about her.

Seeing this gave me happy feelings. Do we have any confirmations about Killian leaving in June?

Killian/Thaxton doing the confrontation here: http://olivia-y113.tumblr.com/post/170833782939/

Killian still sounds more or less the way he did when he was Enjolras, but Thaxton sounds completely different.

Have to agree. I was hoping she'd get better as time went on but it's been over 7 months and that hasn't happened. Ditto for the Thenardiers. Jacqueline's comedic timing is terrible, this is the first Madam Thenardier I've seen that couldn't get a laugh from the audience for 'thinks he's quite a lover but there's not much there'. Steven seems to have toned down the ad-libbed lines/jokes (and the awful fake-French accent), but still not much improvement. I think for all three Thenardiers the understudies do a better job than their principals.
