Holy shit. If you have even the slightest opportunity to visit Tromsø to see Les Mis, do it. I'm unreasonably picky when it comes to non-replica productions, but I'm completely in love with this one. This is better than London has been in years, since the 2009/2010 cast left.

A+ scenic design. Delightful Cosette. Socially awkward Marius. Ann Christin Elverum had me riveted during snooze song IDAD. Mme Thenardier was a real person, not a caricature. Enjolras had the pipes AND a musical!Enjolras characterisation I can happily live with.

More on this later, as I didn't bring a computer and thus am typing this on my phone.

I LIVE FOR NITPICKING LM PRODUCTIONS BUT MY ISSUES ARE MINISCULE COMPARED TO WHAT'S USUALLY THE CASE!

#45 tomorrow!
