i love the book by victor hugo. i read the whole thing (unabridged, thank you very much!). it's so evocative. except for the army parts. those were boring. but important at the time.
the musical i have completely memorized. i've seen it several times, and have the original...
I saw a concert version of Les Mis last night on TV. Many of my spare tween hours were spent listening to a tape of the show, to the point of knowing the entire thing by heart. Back then, Eponine was the one I loved and identified with. I sang her song “On My Own” a million...
for it and I was so excited. This wasn't anything big it's only local theater but it was a step up from all the stuff I usually do.
I auditioned and the next day I got the call. I got gavroche!! I was so happy. I'm 13 so I'm three years off the preferred age but I'm really...
Wasnt the best I've heard but didn't suck either. Color me surprised.
In all fairness, my first exposure to Les Mis was the dream cast concert with Colm Willinson as Val Jean and Phillip Quast as Javert. As any show fan knows they will forever be my image of the...
If you don't know by now
Well, let me just say:
I am obsessed with Les Misérables <3
Really, I am.
I love everything about it
From the setting to the plot
And the characters, they are marvelous, the whole lot!
But by far my favorite is Éponine.
Let me explain . . .
I saw the movie last week and i fell in love with the story and the characters. I was sad and depressing but also very moving. Now i listen to the music on pandora and just keep picturing the movie in my head. I want to see it again.
world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
It all went wrong.
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that god would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were...
and dear to my heart. It's an amazing story, and an amazing musical. I've seen the production 3 times. The first time in London (at Queens theatre) and twice in Toronto. I love every single thing about it, and I can honestly say that it made my life better. I'm really hoping to...
now like nick Jonas is in the 25th anniversary of les miserables like what is life anymore JEESUS take the wheel when I like first saw that my emotions could not handle it so I cried in a corner 😂 XD :D #whatislife
I was in chorus. We had to practice singing songs from Les Miserables. I of course was in the tenor section. One day one of my music teachers gave free tickets to a few of us to see Les Miserables. I was blown away! I sat all the way in the balcony. After seeing it, it made the...
I love Les Mis. So much talent, and so much emotion... I love singing along to the songs, and I dream to one day be able to play Eponine in a theatre production, or maybe Madame Thernadier when I get older!! I love singing Madame Thernadier's parts for a laugh, I often make my...
Only saw this Movie & then the Musical in 2009 & it was by far the best I'd seen in 15-20 yrs. Victor Hugo's uncanny tale of mystery & suspense left me wondering how long could I sit and watch,the 3 hrs went so fast I couldve sat for 3 more intrigued by the plots & sub plots...
I love LesMis and I have been watching it since I was a toddler... my family loves musical's like this and it's amazing to find people who love it just as much as I do...... I'm 16 and not a lot of teens my age or any age like this... I love It!!
more!" I know all the words!
One day more, another day another destiny this never ending road to Calvary, these who seem to know my crime will surely come a second time one day more.
I did not live until today, how can I live when we are parted
One day more
Tomorrow you'll be...
On my own
Pretending she's beside me
I walk with her till morning
I feel her arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And she has found me
In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the...
I especially love that! I think I literally experience EVERY emotion throughout that show. I've seen it live once. I own the original soundtrack and now have it loaded onto My mp3 player. The show makes Me friggin depressed and very inspired all at the same time. But it sucks...
It was amazing, the stage rotated and the scene changes were amazing. I love the west end, it seemed not as crowded as broadway. I am ashamed I waited so long to see this production, it was the best musical I have seen.
A friend of mine had been singing the songs to Les Miserables when we were doing a show together. The show wasn't Les Mis, but I got so annoyed that I finally asked him for the CD. He gave it to me in French and in English, and I've been in love ever since.
Over the summer, I...
as much if it wasn't for Javert.
Javert was the one that did me in.
Seriously, how can you not like Javert?
After him, it's definitely Jean Valjean... But Javert is the best.
When he was on that bridge... Oh, I just died a little inside. He was just as miserable as everyone...
quite a bit. When I want to cut I can listen to that and it just helps a lot. Fav songs are Stars because it's just a beautiful song and it's so powerful and Lovely Ladies because I used to sing it when I was little and now, I think it's a hilarious song. :) i feel much better...
There are classics. Then there are CLASSICS. Then... well, then there's Les Mis. Perhaps the crowning achievement of all French literature, Les Miserables is truly one of the greatest novels of all-time. It is, to be sure, an immense tome -- a monolith, epic in scope, larger than...
I have the book, and fell in love with the characters. I find it that some of the Army parts were boring, but the novel itself is a true classic. I have never seen the musical, I heard it is great. Hoping to go see it this summer. Victor Hugo is one of my favorite writers and...
In my drama class, we are currently watching it. I love it; the songs, story, acting, characters everything. I seem to be the only person in my class who enjoys it; my eyes are glued to the screen, while others pass notes or talk. I can't wait to see the new movie.
My high school performed this about 3 weeks ago. It was the most amazing experience ever! I'm only a freshman and the only one not in a choir class. My first musical EVER! When we were first told about this show, everyone thought "how can a high school accomplish this?"...
I'm 13 years old and I have absolutely love Les Miserables. I've seen the musical, I just finished the original novel and loved it. I've been in three productions of it as young Cosette, Éponine and Fàntine and loved it. I am so excited to see the movie that it's my Christmas...
School French class. My teacher would always talk about it and let us listen to the soundtrack. Then my junior and senior years I was able to go to see the play on Broadway. I actually saw Ricky Martin in the play. It was so powerful and moving. My favorite songs are "On my...
. When there voices were soft..
And there words inviting..
There was a time when love was blind..
And the world was a song..
And the song was exciting...
There was a time..
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
that note in the cover page. I then proceed to have a miniature happy-panic that I expertly conceal and proceed to act out the rest of the scene with obnoxious flair.
Me: Valjean, take care, I'm warning you!
Me: Clear out of here!
Once a thief forever a thief!
I read the book in my fourth year of French class in high school. Then my choir group took a trip to Broadway to see the musical the same year! It was wonderful! I loved it! It is now my most favorite musical!
