Hi, I'm Martha_Valjean. I love both the book and musical versions of Les Mis. I've only known the story for about a year, but, since then, I've fallen in love with it. The first exposure to Les Mis I received was a local school production, and since then I've seen the movie many times, have read the book several times over, and have seen the musical on Broadway.
I love theatre - In fact , my username comes from a nickname I received after I wore my 24601 shirt to drama rehearsal while playing Martha Cratchit in A Christmas Carol. Currently, my friend and I are attempting to get a production of Les Mis at our school, so we'll see where that goes. I really want to make the costumes. Truth be told, I'll probably make some of the costumes even if we don't get to do Les Mis.
Éponine is my favorite character in the book, but my favorite character in the musical depends majorly on the casting. Lea Salonga and Celia Keenan-Bolger are my favorite Éponines, and the 10th anniversary production and first Broadway revivals are the only times she was my favorite character in the musical. I usually prefer Valjean, Javert, or Enjolras in the musical.
Right, I think I'm starting to ramble, so I'll stop here. Bye!
