Yes, no, maybe so?? I LOVE this show and I personally can't wait for the movie version this Christmas :P talk about it erryone. Who's you're favorite character/song/version/etc.?
I LOVE LES MIS!!!!!! They are like amazing and I can't way to go see the movie when it comes out! I think Anne Hathaway playing Fantine is perfect :) she's my favorite character and obviously the classic "I dreamed a Dream" but I think Anne sings it the BEST!! I LOVE LES MISERABLES!! BEST SHOW ON THE FRIGGIN PLANET!
aaaaaaaah! someone else! I haven't ever seen the musical, but I really want to, and also the movie on christmas! my favorite character is jean valjean. my favorite voice is actually javert (or eponine). I have the british version on itunes, And I love that scornful kinda mean voice he does. my especial favorite songs are the confrontation at fantines death, do you hear the people sing, and I dreamed a dream.
and this also means someone will finally understand my username...
I always cry when I hear bring him home. especially if it is sung by a really gifted singer.
Les Mis is a very special film. Anne Hathaway, as Fantine, is wonderful, especially during that tear-jerking moment when she sings "I Dreamed a Dream."
But Russell Crowe, as Javert, is not a fantastic singer, at least for the first songs when he sings with Jean Valjean, AKA Hugh Jackman.
@ 24601-- that is epic!!! love your username! I really wanna get a T-shirt that says "24601" on it just to see who around my school get it.
I am a huge Les Mis fan. My favorite Valjean is Alfie Boe who played him at the 25th Anniversary Concert, but I still feel like Jackman did I good job even if his vocals don't compare to Alfie's. I looooove Samantha Barks as Eponine, she has so much talent for one so young :)
But yes, love, love, love the show I'm getting the movie the day it comes out on DVD for sure!
My favorite songs are "One Day More" "At the End of the Day" "Epilogue" "Sililoquey" "I dreamed a Dream" and "Little Fall of Rain" (though not the way they did it in the movie, bleh. Shouldn't Eponine be in more pain? I mean seriously, if she's gonna get shot from that close? I don't care if she says "I don't feel any pain" they should have staged it like when Samantha did it at the West End).
Anyways, end of rant. Les Mis will always be my favorite music, (with Wicked coming close behind).
I love Eponine, Javert, and Enjorlas. Valjean is okay. I love Hugh Jackman!!!
