26: have you ever tried reading the novel in its original french?
27: other works by victor hugo that you’ve read?

I never do ask memes or, indeed, interact with tumblr at all, but all of these questions are super exciting to me and I would jump at the chance to talk your ear off about them. So, um, send me asks?

phantom of the opera for the musical asks :]

  • Song I wish was longer: “Twisted Every Way”, or maybe “Angel of Music”. 
  • Song I wish was shorter: “Masquerade” is just slightly too long for me
  • The one song I always skip: “Magical Lasso”, also the prologue with the auctioneer because ain’t nobody got time for that
  • Song I sing the best: “The Music of the Night”. My voice is finally, finally low enough that I can sing the Phantom and have it sound actually good, and it is Fantastic.
  • Song I still don’t know all the words to: “Prima Donna” because it’s partly in Italian and I don’t speak Italian
  • Song that honestly deserves an award or five: “The Point of No Return” is sensual and romantic and probably encapsulates why this show is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I really love that whole “tortured genius seems abusive but just wants Love” vibe, and I think that the show generally does a good job of showing that no, he is actually really abusive, but Christine is still allowed to love him and appreciate his music even if she doesn’t approve? (n.b. I have not seen the sequel and I don’t know anything about the Backstory other than I read the novel once and I like the songs)
  • Song that’s terrible but I still love: “Notes” is just a regular patter song but it is so good you guys it’s the best
  • Song that’s really good but I hate: “All I Ask Of You” is actually a lot to ask of Christine and it bugs me. But it’s a great song.
  • Song I think could change the world: I guess “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” is the one that has affected me most. 
  • Song I wish I’d written: It’s gotta be the title song. I want to learn how to play the organ just so I can play this one song.

Les Mis? :D

Finally, the Paris revival version:

  • Song I wish was longer: “Tourne, tourne” got the last bit of it cut off for some reason?? Also, they should have gotten more Gillenormand in there.
  • Song I wish was shorter: “Tu viens, chéri” is as usual difficult to get through.
  • The one song I always skip: Still “Seul devant ces tables vides”, but also “Pourquoi ai-je permis à cet homme” because for some unknown reason they saw fit to split Valjean’s Soliloquy across two tracks.
  • Song I sing the best: Ok, so as bad as “La confrontation” is, I still find enormous joy in belting out “Enfin, Valjean, tu vas purger ta peine!!”. 
  • Song I still don’t know all the words to: “Bonjour Paris”. Look, Gavroche sings really fast and it’s all different from “Donnez”.
  • Song that honestly deserves an award or five: “C’est une poupée dans la vitrine” fixes all the problems with “Castle on a Cloud” and “Mon prince est en chemin déjà”, and does it by going back to the Brick! Five stars, A+, Cosette longing to show the maternal love she never receives T.T/10
  • Song that’s terrible but I still love: “Mon Histoire” is really nice in this version for some reason. It calls back to Eponine’s childhood and sort of parallels “Mon prince est en chemin déjà” from the OFC, and I can almost forgive it for pushing out “L’air de la misère”.
  • Song that’s really good but I hate: “Comme un homme” is just as bad as “Bring Him Home” but it rhymes less and makes less sense. 
  • Song I think could change the world: The finale is the BEST ONE out of any production of LM ever. “Il viendra un jour glorieux où, dans sa marche vers l’Idéal, l’homme ira vers le Progrès, du mal au bien, du faux au vrai” !!!!
  • Song I wish I’d written: I really like “Le bagne : pitié, pitié”, especially that line “Pitié, Seigneur, laisse-moi plutôt mourir !” which I always see as calling back to “tuez-moi plutôt”. 

les miserables

I’m going to do the TAC for this one. 

  • Song I wish was longer: I do wish that “Who Am I” was just a little less rushed, and possibly had the same tune as “Noir ou Blanc”, but, ah well, the show is long enough as it is. 
  • Song I wish was shorter: “Waltz of Treachery”. It seems to drag on and on, and although the scene in the novel is really funny and suspenseful, it’s hard to get that into a song. 
  • The one song I always skip: “Empty Chairs At Empty Tables”, also sometimes “Turning”. 
  • Song I sing the best: Gotta be “Stars”. 
  • Song I still don’t know all the words to: All the bits with Patron-Minette, they don’t really contribute to the overarching plot and I was never really interested in learning the whole thing. Or maybe I’m still bitter that Patron-Minette didn’t get a proper song.
  • Song that honestly deserves an award or five: The Finale is actually really good, especially all the little callbacks to the previous songs. Obviously “I Dreamed A Dream” is great. “Red and Black” is also one that is pretty much perfect. Oh, if we’re not just counting ones on the TAC, “Suddenly” is possibly my favorite song from any English version!
  • Song that’s terrible but I still love: “The Confrontation” is OOC for both Valjean and Javert, its melody is stolen from “Donnez” and “L’air de la misère”, and I have never been able to sing it with another person. But it was for a long time my Favorite Song of All Time, and I love it.
  • Song that’s really good but I hate: “Every Day” just never really did it for me. Also I can never get my brain around Cockney Gavroche – for me, the only good Gavroches are francophone.
  • Song I think could change the world: 

    “One Day More”, I guess? The concept is from the OFC, as with most of the songs here. I suppose “Do You Hear The People Sing” is just the obvious answer to this. 

  • Song I wish I’d written: “Dog Eats Dog” is one of my favorite additions by Kletzmer, and I’m really glad that it exists in the musical. Also, if we count any English version, that bit in the 2012 movie that adapts CJPDC, the extension of the Runaway Cart bit with Javert apologizing to Valjean, that’s the song I wanted to write. 

For the musical ask! Les Mis!

I got three asks for les mis, so I’m going to do the three versions I’m most familiar with, which are the OFC, the TAC, and the Paris revival version (PRV? Does it have a TLA?)

For the OFC:

  • Song I wish was longer: “L’aveu de Jean Valjean”. That bit that goes “je ne suis plus dénoncé, poursuivi, ni mis en quarantaine” always gives me chills and I love it. Also this part of the Brick is Valjean’s Last Struggle with his Conscience, and it should get a solo just like “Who Am I” does, rather than this dialogue thing that we have here.
  • Song I wish was shorter: “Mon prince est en chemin déjà”. That intro is just too long. Also, the idea of Cosette just waiting for a Man, instead of like, a better life, or material security, kinda rubs me the wrong way. 
  • The one song I always skip: “Mam’zelle Crapaud”, or “Les beaux cheveux”. I’m not even sure why “Les beaux cheveux” is even a separate track. 
  • Song I sing the best: “Dites-moi ce qui se passe”, of course. 
  • Song I still don’t know all the words to: “J’avais rêvé d’une autre vie”, the bit at the end just before “La nuit, la nuit, je sombre en mon corps” sung by the chorus is just, not quite audible. Also there are bits in “Demain” that I don’t know by heart.
  • Song that honestly deserves an award or five: I’m going to go ahead and put “La devise du cabaretier” here, because it’s significantly better than “Master of the House” and its derivatives. Like most of the other songs in the OFC, it quotes the Brick extensively, and it’s funny without being overblown or clownish. It’s not the best song in the album (that’s “L’air de la Misère”, “Noir ou Blanc”, or possibly “La faute à Voltaire”), but it really doesn’t get enough credit for being actually a really good song, when you take away all the slapstick stagey stuff from the Broadway production. 
  • Song that’s terrible but I still love: “L’un vers l’autre” and “Voilà le soir qui tombe” are arguably superfluous, but I love them dearly. I don’t even think 

    “L’un vers l’autre” got adapted into anything? What a waste. 

  • Song that’s really good but I hate: I don’t think there’s any songs on the OFC that I actually Hate, besides obviously “Les beaux cheveux”? Oh, no, “Le coeur au bonheur”. I hate that song a lot. 
  • Song I think could change the world: I remember once hearing a rumor that “A la volonté du peuple” was regarded by some French people as an unofficial national anthem, like “America the Beautiful” is here. 
  • Song I wish I’d written: “Noir ou Blanc”
