The Ongoing Les Misérables Discussion Thread

Adam as Grantaire is usually very good. However, the past 3 performances I have seen, he was going for laughs quite balatantely, even in the barcade scene just before BHH. I didn't think that was appropreate. Why is he doing this? Is he bored of playing this role in a normal way, or what? I think he should drop it.

That said, I really like his Grantaire. His affection for Gavroche is moving. And I swear sometimes I see a gay subtext between his Grantaire and Enjolras, but maybe I'm just looking for something new.

I just don't like him in the Cafe scenes and the way he completely ignores Enjolras. He doesn't even look at him. And later he seems to care more about Gavroche and Marius. Doesn't work for me I'm afraid, but hey, each to their own.

Has anyone seen Zoe Doano as Cosette? I thought she was wonderful, much more vocally comfortable with the score than Lisa-Anne Wood I felt.

I've never really thought about the relationship between Enjolras and Grantaire before, but is it so hard to believe that Enjolras wouldn't like him all that much? Here he is trying to lead a revolution against a cause he believes so passionately about, and there's a guy who's contstantly drunk and maybe Enjolras thinks that he's not taking it seriously. Adam's moved me to tears in 'Drink with me' and the final battle scene, I think he puts so much into the character and has really thought about it. In any show, not just this one, sometimes I tend to pay more attention to the ensemble than the leads and I love to see backgrond artists giving their all to a character knowing the majority of the audience probably won't be watching them.
An ensemble make a show, and this current Les Mis company are top notch. My favourite girl is Mary Cormack, I've seen her in a show before and she has a superb voice.

I saw her some months back in the role I immediately thought her singing was at ease with the score. Her top end never seemed strained & her acting equalled Lias's. I was hoping to see her again IMO she's the better Cosette.
