    Les Miserables School Edition

    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?"...

    Les Miserables is near

    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...

    I Love The Book

    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...

    I have seen it in London.

    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 Vivid And Captivating Story Of Humanity In All Its Forms.

    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 Want To Watch It Again

    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.

    Love Les Mis

    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...

    Great Story

    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!

    Listening to Les Miserables music calms me down

    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...

    On My Own

    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...

    Amazing

    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 favorite song in Les Miserables is "one day

    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...

    ! Read the book two years ago, though it took me forever, I loved it. I liked fantines story the best though it was pretty sad..... Anne Hathaway did a really good job though.

    My School Actually Did A Production Of Les Mis

    So yeah, we did a production of it and I got to be Fantine. It was one of the most exciting things I've ever done, but the more professional productions of it are hard to live up to. I've never actually seen the movie, either, but I've heard really good things about it.

    I probably wouldn't have liked it

    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...

    My first thought: Russell Crowe

    as Javert? 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...
