I'm stupidly delighted about James Hume taking on Lesgles, and also because that was James Gant's ensemble role for a while and the two of them both played Etches in Southwark Titanic. Hume made me love Etches, Etches made me love James Gant.

Also editing this from my West End - 2013/2014 cast post made me especially nostalgic.

That's such a cute pic of Simon Gleeson. Also it made me think of the passing on of the Enjy vest and now I want to cry!

Ugh, I thought the same thing and that's kind of why I chose to post that picture in lieu of any group shots that may or may not exist yet.

Jeremy Secomb got Killian on scarecam and I gotta say, Killian's making a pretty good looking JVJ right now.

I may or may not have played that video about 10 times in a row :lol:

On another note, someone London based needs to go see the new cast soon so we'll get some reviews.

Is it wrong that I kinda want to see Killian have a moment where he reacts like that during the show? :lol:

:wink:

There was a review on tumblr after the first night. Apparently Killian was good but there were heaps of bloopers from the others, like missed lines, one of the warnings didn't go off and Fantine got her necklace tangled in her hair.

Thanks :D Such a shame about the missing warnings, it's such a powerful moment in the show. When are you seeing the new cast? Your reviews are first class, so I'm eager to read them

How do you pronounce "Meo"? Like...meow?? I find the name slightly (scratch that) REALLY funny because...Patron Minette. :lol:
For real though how to pronounce "Hyoie"? :shock:

Monday was the first show, so it's been almost a week already :shock:
I'd pronounce Meo like Me-oh, but that's probably wrong :lol: From Hyoie's twitter: It's like 'Hughie' with an 'Oh'

Hahahaha thanks, glad someone enjoys my rambling nonsense :lol:

Hope to catch them soon, but by then they'd probably be familiar with ththe material so not so many bloopers. (I both kind of want to catch some bloopers but also cringe for the actors when they happen. But they're all pros so I'm sure they get over it.)
