Thanks for fixing that! I don't think it was the board's fault, because even if I paste it in a word document, it still cuts off. But I downloaded the PDF, so I don't have to worry about the link now!
Nice Gavroche pic! Umm...what is the thing with all the characters wearing chains?

Sorry about the link; I admit I didn't test it.
Yes, that would be my youtube account.

I find it absolutely strange that the Paris production is so obscure, considering how popular the show is now. You'd think we'd be inundated with information. I spent twenty years loving the concept album before I ever saw a single photo. It's very mysterious.

I really want to write Rose Laurens to ask her all about the show.

That reminds me: one of the links posted earlier (I think it was the one with the full program of the show -http://operette.forumactif.org/login?redirect=%2Ft1182-topic ) doesn't work anymore. Did anybody download the pictures and could pass them on? I unfortunately didn't...

Since "From Stage to Screen" contains an abridged facsimile of the 1980 brochure it's only fair to share the whole thing (plus other photos I found online) for all the Mizzies here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ep6m8b

Enjoy! :)

I knew it would be worth to stay up this late and poke the internet for OFC photos:

Cosette looks so young! (and a little like Claire Danes in the 98 movie or is that just me?)
The wigs are....quite something :shock:
Great find! :)

Looks like we had the same first impression. :) First time ever that I see the aged look of OFC Valjean, and man, that's what aging should look like! *points at movie make-up department which still did a great job with Aaron's wig and Hadley's moustache*

Couple more pictures

Full cast: http://i.ebayimg.com/t/COUPURE-DE-PRESS ... J/$_57.JPG

From a press clipping which I own.

Release of the recorded show is my biggest wish for the 30th anniversary next year. Well apart from a director's cut of the film.
