The Ongoing Les MisÚrables Discussion Thread

So many people dont 'get' sarcasm, humour, self deprecating on social networking. Ive seen it happen so many times with people on twitter having to defend something they said as a joke
Nothing wrong wth not liking his performance, but blaming twitter is insane. Especially when you actually lool at what little he posts on les mis.

Firstly, I think you may be misinterpreting his messages, which is very easy to do on social networking sites as you can never really understand the tone that the message is set in. I had the pleasure to meet Niall just the other day and he did not come at all across as arrogant or full of himself. I completely agreed with what Titan has previously said in regards to social networking and how what he posts has no relation to his performance. Also, bear in mind it was his first performance understudying Enjolras. Ok, so in your opinion his performance wasn't perfect or how you were expecting, but most actors take a good few runs to get settled into the role, especially when understudying another character.

The whole cast was great. The problem with having seen a few amazing casts now is that I get so picky and find myself a little underwhelmed sometimes, yet they were all great.
Cameron was a fantastic Thénardier as always. I had only ever seen Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier before, so it was strange with someone new, but Wendy was really great, with the right amount of menace.
Na-Young Jeon was a very good Fantine. Acting-wise not as strong as the other two I've seen, but was nice to have a slightly younger-seeming Fantine. And vocally probably my favourite Fantine.
Carrie Hope Fletcher was a really good Eponine. Great voice and she seemed very natural in the role, yet I just felt there was something missing and I can't explain what! Maybe it was just the mood I was in but I wasn't as moved by On My Own as I usually am.
Rob Houchen was a lovely Marius. Great Empty Chairs. Samantha Dorsey was fine as Cosette.
Tam was a great Javert but because I've seen 3 other amazing Javerts I wasn't blown away, but Stars is always stunning and his was no exception.
Thought Niall was brilliant as Enjolras. Lovely strong voice, great presence, really glad I went to see him.
And Chris was a wonderful Valjean. Maybe not so strong at some parts as others I've seen, but a great performance. I particularly like his voice with the softer more gentler bits and really liked his Who Am I? And his Bring Him Home was just beautiful.
I love this show so much.
