On the weekend of June 19, there is a group of geeky LM fans getting together to go see the Québec production of Les Mis. Because it is shiny and in French. Since that's kind of a long way for most of us, we're going to rendezvous on Saturday the 18th in Massachusetts, where I am currently working a summer job at school and have a double room in the dorms, catch a night's sleep on the floor or the spare bed, and drive up to see the show on Sunday. When we get back everyone can sleep in my room again and then go home.
I know this is only a couple of weeks' notice, but I just wanted to see if anyone else was interested in either meeting us there or in joining the Massachusetts rendezvous plan. So far it's me, MmeJavert, lesmisloony, and a couple of people who aren't very active here but whom I've met before in real life and who are awesome. If you're interested, either reply or PM me and I can give you more details about timing, location, directions, etc.
There's also a big rock festival in Québec on Saturday the 18th, so a couple people might be arriving on Friday and going up a day early. If you want to go to that, talk to MmeJavert.
I know Québec City seems ludicrously far away to most Americans, but it's only a five-hour drive from where I am in Massachusetts. There are people coming from as far south as North Carolina and Washington DC, and I can pick people up from the train station or from anywhere within a two-hour drive from central Mass, so distance or lack of car doesn't have to be an obstacle.
