Nobody on here really things that Eponine deserves Marius. Really, between this thread and that other thread in the Social Forum, it really seems like you don't have a feel for the opinions of the members of this board. And so to go on assuming that our opinions usually match those of the uninformed general theater fans of youtube and broadwaysecrets is just wrong.. and slightly annoying.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean that at all. I don't assume that everyone shares those opinions, I was just stating that some people do. And I do respect everyone's own opinion, I just feel very strongly about my own.

Again, I'm sorry if I came off that way.

I mean, that's understandable. Before I came here, all of the Les Mis communities were like that, so hey. :)

To anyone's knowledge, has any of the cuts in the SE been restored?

Not that I know of. Basically all that's cut is lyrics from about a quarter of the songs...but I haven't heard of any restorations.

Schools do that illegally all the time.

speaking of which, in the finale is it mandatory that fantine sings "and you will be with God" up the octave, or do some school Fantine's sing it down the octave like they do in Professional productions? I'm auditioning for Fantine in May, and can reach that low note most of the time....

I can't imagine that it's mandatory. Shows change keys and put things down/up octaves all the time. If your show had a low mezzo/alto Fantine who wanted to show off the low D, I don't see why taking one line down an octave would be a problem.

^ That's good! I can reach it most of the time, but it just seems that most school fantine's i've seen do it up the octave... maybe they're scared, or maybe it's the MD that's scared... :roll:

I don't understand that or why some people just plain hate Eponine. I personally love both characters and wish Cosette had more screen time in the musical, because I absolutely loved her, although I love Eponine, too. It seems like here on the internet, it's been just one or the other, but in real life, everyone I've talked to likes both characters.
