So, as some of you may have noticed on the UK/European tour website or the regionals thread, Les Mis is going to be in Paris from late May to early July 2010. Which means it's going to be in Paris on 5 and 6 June, AKA Barricade Day. And
it's at the Théâtre du Châtelet which is in central Paris very close to where most of the book's action takes place, and
this is the show's 25th year, and
we have an entire year to plan ahead. It's like the stars aligned for a Great Big Fan Meetup in Paris.
If you're at all interested in getting yourself to Paris on the 5th and 6th of June to see the show (it'll be in English btw), meet some other fans, and stand on the real-life actual Pont Notre-Dame imagining a guy in a greatcoat jumping off the quay, please reply to this thread! Even if you're not sure whether you can make it, I'd like to see how many people are interested.
This can be as simple or as elaborate as we want it to be--anything from an unofficial meetup to practically a full-on convention. It'll depend on how many people are interested and what y'all want to do. I'm going to be studying in Paris all year, so I can show people around and translate things and give the real-life version of the Mizzie Tour
Théâtre du Châtelet's 2009-2010 season
- Les Misérables is already listed.
- Massive discounts on airfare, train fare, hotels, car rentals, etc. for university students and faculty. I love this site; it got me a one-way plane ticket to Paris for about $350 including fees.
- Discount airfare and price comparison for those not affiliated with an institution of higher education
Budget hotels in Paris
- Exactly what it says on the box.
[Dieu] entend ta voix, ô fille des hommes! aussi bien que celle des constellations; car rien n'est petit pour celui devant lequel rien n'est grand.
