I should have probably written this.
My first time seeing LM ever. So the London show is great. I did not expect it to be this great!
Peter Lockyer has an amazing voice, plays Valjean perfectly and also is a very sweet person. Sometimes he gives thrills when on stage. It’s a wonderful casting choice, truly brilliant.
David Thaxton does a great job as a Javert. Too bad he runs away all the time after the show. The fall of Javert in the end is very well set on the scene.
Michael Coulborne - I don’t know how they cast him, it looks like they put him on stage and set light on him and then they were blown away because he looks VERY glorious on stage, his cheekbones and stuff. He also sings very well. And in real life he looks much better than on any picture or video, also kinda dorky and really lovely.
Christian Edwards would earn all your love, Blagden-style, if he was in a movie because he plays Grantaire perfectly. He does everything he is supposed to do as this character. You see that sad melancholy that is all over him, you see how he reacts to everything that happens on stage, especially to Enjolras. And yes, he touches Enjolras a lot. Christian seems a bit shy getting complimented but he should get used to it. I think every person who adores Grantare as the character tells him one single thing: you nailed it.
Carrie Hope Fletcher is seriously wonderful. The staging of On My Own is stunning. She is also a very enthusiastic and a pleasant person to talk to. A lot of fans gather around her after each show.
Emilie Fleming is very lovely and heartwarming. Great job!
Rob Houchen is great for the role. His Empty Chairs at Empty Tables sound really good and touching. Also the setting of this song is going to make you cry. In person he is nice and friendly.
I also liked all the Eponine-Marius mini-scenes, they were really touching. As well as Marius-Cosette scenes, actually. The tiny interaction between Eponine and Montparnasse is also nice. The good thing about the show is you can watch it again and again and find new details you missed.
Adam Linstead currently has many roles on the show. I guess, the Bishop is one of the best among them. Was glad to see him in act and also in person.
Celinde Shoenmaker - what a wonderful Fantine, what a wonderful voice. Loved her.
Tom Eden and Wendy Ferguson are a perfect duo that get all kudos from the audience while they are on stage. People get crazy when they come on stage in the end of the show.
Girls who play young Cosette and those boys who play Gavroche are absolutely heart-breaking and totally awww-worthy. My crying started with the death of Gavroche.
Special kudos to the Swing/Ensemble teams. They totally rock. Very special kudos to those two singing “I smell women, smell ‘em in the air, think I’ll drop my anchor In that harbor over there” - they are absolutely gorgeous, i don’t know why.
The set is built… wow. When you see the first time barricades fall on the stage - no words. The stage is not big but the spinning effect and the way the barricades fall on the stage in the second act - wow. The directors did a good job, the set designer did a good job, the guys who work with lightning and special effects did an awesome job. Let me correct myself - do an awesome job. The orchestra also needs to be praised for the job. Everyone working there does.
