Anyone notice how I kinda really don’t like non-replica productions in general, with a few notable exceptions? Well, it’s official, I’m head over heels in love with a non-replica production. If you have any opportunity at all to go visit Tromsø before the end of November, do it!

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!
