Kayla and I are watching the Les Mis 10th. I’m flailing over Michael Ball and his perfect faces. We are belting all of the songs. I’m also flailing over Enjolras just for existing. We are both flailing over Colm Wilkinson’s lips and Quast’s voice.

James McAvoy, who played the younger Professor Charles Xavier, said that Vaughn has some “fantastic” ideas for the next movie. The actor is keen to show how his character copes with the life-changing events at the end of the first film.
"I don’t know where we find Erik - it’s kind of defined at the end of the film that he’s a bad guy. I can’t really speak for him, but I know that with Charles, you either have to write him out of the movie or give him an interesting story. He can’t just become the guy that we saw in the first three movies. He just had two major things happen to him. He’s lost his best friend, essentially, and he’s just been paralysed from the waist down. Which is just a huge, huge blow to his considerable ego. So he’s got to deal with that.
"And I don’t think we can just brush over that and go ‘Yeah I’m in a wheelchair now.’ You’ve got to deal with that, I don’t care if he’s a superhero and has brain powers or not, he’s just had a huge part of his physical life taken away from him, by someone he cares about more than anyone else.
SO BASICALLY IT WILL BE CHERIK AND MCANGST ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE SKY AND JDBVKJSBDKVJBSDFKGHSDFV
“Harry Houdini, master escapist, buried and chained and tied. Reaching for danger, darker and stranger, now that his Mama’s died! Conquering fear in hopes he will hear a voice from the other side. Come see Houdini’s daring display! Thrilling the crowd and making them say, “Let’s run away to Atlantic City!”—
Weird as it sounds, I think Houdini is probably my favorite character in the show. It could have something to do with the fact that I really adore him in general as a historical figure, but his integration into this musical is just so cool, as is the involvement of all the historical characters in Ragtime.
Gah, I do love Houdini though. I’ve always been fascinated by magicians and when I was younger I went through a period where I’d only read biographies (don’t ask….it was somewhere between my American Girl phase and discovering Harry Potter) and I must have read four or five about Houdini alone. He had a really fascinating life. So, yes, there are reasons that I’m excited about Houdini: The Musical beyond that it will probably involve a shirtless Ramin. XD
The Confrontation - Ramin Karimloo & Hadley Fraser
Really really pleasantly surprised by Ramin tonight, sliiightly freaked out by him at the stage door, figured this was the bit most people want to hear, even though I don’t think it was his strongest point.
Ramin Karimloo’s first performance as Valjean November 29th 2011
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I AM DEAD. DEAD. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. AHHHHHHHHH!
Everyone is entitled to their opinions, of course, especially about music….but after hearing this I really don’t understand why the Ramin Karimloo tag is full of wank and cat fights.
Once upon a time, the Controller of the BBC commissioned 3 1 and a half hour TV Shows which were some of the best things ever produced on TV. Then, someone seemed to forget they had an award winning TV Show on their hands, and didn't think to make anymore immediately. Instead, they waited a year and a half to even begin thinking of showing more episodes. Driven mad by lack of this show and with only 3 episodes to watch on repeat over and over, the fans took it upon themselves to create plots, relationships and entirely new characters which weren't in the original show, each of these new ideas more insane than the last.
I think we’re all going to be confused by the new episodes. I mean jesus, we’ve written this all for ourselves!
“Ehh…why aren’t they having sex right now?” “THERE ARE MUGS! THERE ARE MUGS! …why aren’t you doing anything about it?” “ANDERSON WHERE ARE YOUR DINOSAURS!?!? WHY ARE THERE NO DINOSAURS!?” “WHY ARE YOU HAVING BUTTER ON YOUR TOAST, JOHN!? YOU LIKE JAM! YOU LIKE JAAAAAAAAAM!”
So. Accurate. They’re going to start telling us everyone’s backstories and we’ll just be sitting here like NO. THAT IS INCORRECT.
Sherlock won’t be the one who bought Mycroft his umbrella.
Lestrade’s family life will actually be happy instead of divorced-with-three-kids. (that’s fanon, right? I’m starting to lose track of reality…)
Sherlock will never have gone to rehab.
Molly and Jim will not have some dark, twisted, glorious relationship, but rather he simply leaves or something and never sees her again.
Okay I need to peel myself off the internet now because bedtime and I have to do ALL OF THE THINGS this week and I haven’t been writing much or reading much or organized much and kdjfbvksjdhgskjbdfvkjshdfkjgsbkdfvb
Gotchu beat. Also Tori, short dark brown hair, double Drama/English degree, current stage manager, fangirled so hard over Phantom that I think I broke something, and am also a giant Whovian (and Sherlockian). BAM Toris of the world UNITE.
Not to be a creep, but my name is Tori. I am 19. I have short curly brown hair. I am a theatre major that is considering adding an English minor. My first Broadway show was Phantom of The Opera. I am also a Time Lady, Brown Coat, and witch. Do you find this as amusing/spooky as I?
Well, that is rather coincidental! O_O *waves* Hello other me!
DAKJSGHDSKLFJADKSGHAGDHSA I GOT TO MEET HIM AND CHRSITINE (I can't for the life of me remember the actress's name D:) AND I GOT THEIR AUTOGRAPHS AND YOU WILL BE SUPER HAPPY TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE BOTH SUPER NICE.
“We immediately began the duet from Othello and already catastrophe loomed in the air. I sang Desdemona with a sense of despair, a heartfelt fear that I had never displayed before. Instead of robbing me of my abilities, the company of such a grim partner inspired a magnificent sense of terror in me. The events of which I had become the victim, brought me closer to the Bard’s thoughts and I found a proficiency deep within myself that would have astonished all of my former music teachers. As for him, his voice thundered forth, his vengeful soul emphasized every note, prodigiously magnifying its power. Love, jealousy, and hatred burst around us in his harrowing cries. Erik’s black mask naturally made me think of the Moor of Venice. He had become Othello. I truly felt he was going to strike me, that I would die beneath his blows… And yet I did not run from his fury, like shy Desdemona. Quite the opposite. I moved closer to him, attracted and fascinated, finding a new charm in Death amidst such passion… But before I died, I wanted to carry with me, as I took my last breath, the sublime image of his unforgettable features, transfigured by the fires of eternal art. I wanted to know the face of the Voice. Suddenly, with a movement which I was utterly unable to control, for I no longer was in control of myself, my fingers hurriedly tore away the mask…”—Gaston Leroux (Phantom of the Opera, Apollo’s Lyre)
