Awesome! And another proof that Napier's design didn't come out of nowhere...

Request: I'm looking for any photograph of the original Barbican production as well as the Skydome, Toronto 1989 and Windsor Castle 2004 concerts. Also any depicting the death of Enjolras would be much appreciated. Please contact me via pm or post them here. Thanks in advance mes amis!

I have a few ultra rare stills of the original London production including an awesome pic of Patti LuPone as Fantine on stage. It's a nice change from the one IDAD picture that is available of her in the role. I also have shots of the students at the barricade and you could see just how massive the original production was at the Barbican/Palace. All of these are in color, of course.

The only thing that makes me not post them is, the site I got them from had a stern warning about posting without permission. Even if it didn't, it'd be real bad form to just post away like that. Only problem is, I can't seem to remember the URL so you guys could just go there and see them for yourselves. Maybe one of you knows which site I'm talking about? If you do, post the link for me?

If nobody knows, don't sweat it. I have the details stored away on some piece of paper, lost in this vast junkyard also known as my office. It's gotta be somewhere in here, I can assure you of that! LOL.

Also, I've since expanded my souvenir brochure collection by a dozen, or so. Including one from early on in the Palace Theatre run, the OBC brochure, first New Zealand engagement of the Aussie tour in '91, and a few others. I'm a lazy mofo, so who knows when those will get scanned but I'll share away those ultra rare shots as soon as I locate the URL!!! \:D/

The 1981 show is the mother of them all Miserables productions ! :thumbup:

The 25th anniversary events (touring production and O2 concert) should have been named 30th anniversary... ;)

Bad bad Uwe... ;)


Bit of a late lurker, but I've noticed Uwe Kroger likes to grope his female co-stars in non-serious pictures...and the women are always laughing like "aww..what a cute gay man, he wants to fondle me" XD I do find it amusing

So he did the bible thumper Javert? Sounds interesting...

Scott Irwin, 10th Anni Australia Tour 1997. Heck of an Enjolras, should rank among the best.

Was poking around various sites when I came across original musical staging consultant Kate Flatt's site and this picture:

I love Cosette ads.

Quote:

“When we started to rehearse the American cast,” says Caird, “we did a very interesting exercise. We got the company together, sat in a big circle and said, ‘What we want you all to do is tell us where you all come from, where your parents came from, when they came to America and why.” And we found that in most of the cases their ancestors had come to America from Europe — France, Germany, Russia, Poland — at precisely the time of ‘Les Miserables’ for precisely the reasons of injustice, poverty and degradation that Hugo is describing. In many senses the American cast of ‘Les Miserables’ are more truly the children of Victor Hugo than the English cast. And by inference the people coming to see the show in New York will be closer to the events.”

Newsweek March 30, 1987

Hossein was really into chains for every scene and every actor. :shock:

I can't get over how the original French production had a very similar look to the version we all know. And that orchestra!!

Agreed! If this physical production were revived today, using the familiar version of the show, it would still be viable and probably fantastic! Though I might want to scrap the surreal use of chains everywhere... I get the symbolism, but still... weird...
