I've never seen a bad Enjolras. Admittedly, I've only seen 4... David Thaxton was my first and my favourite. Full of charisma and charm.
I'd have loved to have seen David as Enjolras! Having heard bootlegs he seemed to put so much into the role!

It's a shame Sierra is leaving before Cast change. I'm going on the 1st December aswell though so hopefully I'll get to see her then as I've been looking forward to seeing her Fantine!
Great news about Phantom though, she's a wonderful Christine :)
Also, I've yet to pass judgement on Oliver Savile as Enjolras but he'll be on as him on the 1st so I'm looking forward to seeing his interpretation of the character. I've heard both good and not so good things about him, but going on looks (which I know you shouldn't do, but anyway - ) he looks very book!Enjolras which makes me excited!

look at http://accesslondon....tre-q-with.html last para re December 1. Not sure what it means, but I have a ticket for that day too....

Thanks for posting - it's better to know in advance I think.
I'm a bit dissapointed because I really wanted to see Sierra but I've heard good things about AJ.

I wouldn't say I've seen a bad Enjolras exactly-but there have been a couple to whom I'd have made an excuse and gone back to the pub...

I think the timing is due to her having to fly to New York and rehearse in time to play Christine in Phantom of the Opera from w/c 21st January.
