Les Miserables, First Reaction

I know no one really reads these blogs on the weekend, let alone on a Saturday night in the summer, but I just had to gush for just a quick bit. I will get into the whole day trip to New York and the fablouslessness that is Les Miserables, but if you have ever found yourself in a moment where you said two things "My goddess, why have I not seen this before, and geez, don't let it end", that was Les Miserables to me today. I. am still on cloud 99.

I'm here too :) I guess I have no life, lol

I felt the same thing when I first saw it in a theater in Boston. It was my 16th birthday gift and I was so happy. I want more than anything to see it on Broadway though. I'm glad you had such a great time!

Got to agree with the others here. I first saw Les Mis in London in '94 as a chaperone on a HS trip (I was studen teaching). It has always been my favorite, even collected several cast recordings.

The Complete Symphonic is the best, every note, every word on 3 CDs. The 10th anniversary concert recording is great too as the best of each role are there (though my bias says Debbie Gibson should have been the Eponine).

The Vienna Cast (German) and the Original Concept CDs (French) are great too.

I haven't seen it live, but I love the music. I'm very jealous!

Another no-lifer checking in.

Actually, I've never seen a live play, even though there are many theaters in Philly.

I have no life either- glad you enjoyed it!

My husband and I saw it two kids ago in Boston. I loved it! However, the part where everyone dies, someone blew their nose in the audience and it sounded like a duck, so people started giggling. You know that whole fine line between laughing and crying. I swear the cast just couldn't figure out what was going on. I am so glad you had a great time!

I LOVED LOVED LOVED Les Mis. Saw it twice in Toronto and once in NY, when Leah Solonga played Eponine (sp?) and was so fantastic! I still get the welling tears when I hear On My Own. *sniff*
(going to dig out the soundtrack....)
