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.

I don’t think Eponine needs a pretty voice. I just don’t think she needs to sound too disparate. Yes, she loves Marius, but she’s a tough girl, she can deal.

I think the current London cast is overrated, with the exception being Rob Houchen. He’s probably the best Marius I’ve ever seen.

I loved Cosette and Marius with my whole heart and I don’t get why people don’t ship them that much or understand the hate Cosette gets. She did nothing wrong and it wasn’t her fault that Marius fell in love with her.

I loved Eddie and Amanda’s performances in the movie. One of my favourite portrayals of Marius and Cosette!!

I’ve never understood why everyone hates on Marius. When I saw the musical and when I read the book, I never had any negative things to say about him.

philip quast is great. michael ball is good. and yet somehow russell crowe is my favorite javert, and nick jonas is my favorite marius. i have no rational explanation for this. i’m not sure i want one.

when i was in high school, i understudied for my best mate, who played marius. my cousin, who was also in the show, played cosette. we didn’t have the same last name, so nobody knew we were related, and because we thought it unlikely that i would go on as understudy, we didn’t feel the need to tell anyone. but because the show ran for only three days, my best mate called in sick on short notice so i could have the spotlight the night my family came to watch the musical. yes, we ended up kissing. twice.

i think craig mather would be the best marius if he hadn’t used some of the silliest facial expressions.

i can sometimes forget the book characterizations when there is a dispute between the book and musical portrayals, but i have so much difficulty taking things like marius the revolutionary or javert the religious man seriously.

though i loved him as courfeyrac in the movie, fra fee looks exactly like my mental image of marius from the description in the brick. i’m desperately jealous of everyone who got to see fra playing marius on the west end!

i sometimes ship éponine and marius in a ‘maybe now cosette can go hook up with courfeyrac’ kind of way.
