I’d give my right arm to play Javert; I adore his passion. Alas, I am female and cannot sing.

It never fails to amuse me how, in the 25AC, someone as unattractive as Karimloo was cast as Enjolras and someone as handsome as Fraser was cast as Grantaire.

I couldn’t accept “Suddenly” as a part of Les Mis until I heard it sung by John Owen-Jones

 Lea Michele’s voice is too high pitched to be Éponine. She would better off being Cosette because either Dianna Agron or Naya Rivera have better voices for it.

when I discovered that Carrie Hope Fletcher was staying on as Éponine for 2014-2015, I cried, and NOT with happiness. I’d really hoped we’d get another three-dimensional Éponine. Alas, not everyone can do with their acting what Danielle Hope, Nancy Sullivan, Frances Rufelle, and over in the states Celia Keenan-Bolger, were able to do - but I have to say, Carrie does at least have a superior singing voice to most.

I love Ramin Karimloo in everything he’s ever done. But I cannot stand his Valjean, and it breaks my heart, because Broadway is my only chance to see Les Mis, and I’ve been a fan for 13 years now. I wish I could see any other Valjean but his.

the only times i’ve ever felt bad for being born as a girl, and then grow to identify as one too, is when i think of how i much i really want to play enjolras or marius in a stage production of les mis.

my school is putting on a production of les mis and i could not be happier. the thing is my dream role of roles is eponine: i have the voice for it, i can act it, i know all her lines off by heart, my family knows i have the emotion and capability to play her. the thing is, i’m in eighth grade and i know i will never be given the chance to play eponine.

I really hope that I will someday hear “The Confrontation” performed by Alfie Boe opposite Philip Quast.

Jeremy Hays is one of the few actors I’ve seen portray a near-perfect Brickjolras in the musical. I understand that Enjolras was written differently on stage, but Jeremy Hays’ portrayal seemed to come straight from the pages of the novel.

I loved the film but hated Hugh Jackman in Valjean’s Confession - having said that, Eddie Redmayne’s “it must be so” down the octave was so beautiful it made me cry, it marks Marius’s turning-point as a character and was a really brave choice.

people in the les mis fandom are incredible dogmatic about their beliefs (either value of characters, their sexuality etc.). Considering that hugo was against organized religion as a whole and considered passive christianity to be a cancer, it’s pretty ironic. please try to realize that textual interpretations may vary, and it says nothing of one’s politics, or even one’s correctness.

I’m just getting into Les Mis, but listening to the movie version of A Little Fall of Rain brought me to tears, and I don’t say that lightly. I almost never cry for media.
