Les Misérables 30 Day Challenge

Since I don’t follow the rules, I’m answering this in one shot.

Day 1. Favourite Valjean and why?

  • Colm Wilkinson (10th) – his age suits the role

Day 2. Favourite Javert and why?

  • Philip Quast (10th) – more scary

Day 3. Favourite Fantine and why?

Day 6. Favourite Éponine and why?

Day 7. Favourite Enjolras and why?

  • Its a tie between Michael Maguire (10th) and Ramin Karimloo (25th) – Both portrayed their role well

Day 8. Favourite M. & Mme. Thénardier and why?

  • Matt Lucas (25th) and Jenny Galloway (10th&25th) – both portrayed their role well

Day 9. Favourite Grantaire and why?

  • Hadley Fraser (25th) – acts better

Day 10. Favourite Les Amis and why?

  • Les Amis of the 25th. – Has Bromance 😀

Day 11. How did you first discover Les Miserables?

  • On my Own was the first song that I heard when my high school’s theatre clup had a play and they included that song. I googled it and found out it’s from Les Miz. [3rd year high school]
  • During my High School years, the English subject is discussing world Literature so they let us watch Les Miserables (10th) on the auditorium (film-viewing only, not the actual play) [4th year high school]

Day 12. A part from the musical that makes you sad?

  • Empty Chairs and Empty Tables

Day 13. A part from the book that makes you sad?

  • *Haven’t read the book. I’ll edit this post when I read it. maybe on Christmas Vacation*

Day 14. Favourite line or song from the musical and what it means to you?

  • One day More. This song was like Annie’s Tomorrow that tells us to never lose hope.

Day 15. Favourite quote or part of the book and what it mean to you?

  • *Haven’t read the book. I’ll edit this post when I read it. maybe on Christmas Vacation*

Day 16. Your opinions on the upcoming movie?

  • Many people criticized it that it will end up like other Broadway musicals that was turned to be a movie, that it will suck because when you make a movie, you need A-list actors. But when you make a musical, you need good singers. In musicals, people await for the showcase of talent especially in singing. So when they do the casting for movies, they don’t hire good singers; they just hire celebrities who they think can sing. I don’t think the movie can surpass the musical (in my opinion). If you have watched the Phantom of the opera movie and the staged version, you can see the real difference (lip synced :’c )

Day 17. Who is your favourite character from the book and your favourite character from the musical?

  • I believe the book and musical have the same story. I choose Fantine – because she’ll do anything for her daughter.

Day 18. Is there a part from the book that you wish was in the musical?

  • *Haven’t read the book. I’ll edit this post when I read it. maybe on Christmas Vacation*

Day 19. Least favourite song from the musical?

  • Dog eats dog. I think if it was removed, no one will notice.

Day 20. Tell us about your first time seeing the musical?

  • Sleepy because the room was so cold and the seats were comfortable.

Day 21. Tell us what you experienced reading the book for the first time?

  • *Haven’t read the book. I’ll edit this post when I read it. maybe on Christmas Vacation*

Day 22. Which character can you relate to in the book or musical and why?

  • Eponine. Always the unrequited lover.

Day 23. Is there a character you dislike? Why?

  • Bamatabois. I could kill him in real life.

Day 24. Favourite cast?

  • I only saw the 25th and 10th; and both are good in their own ways.

Day 25. Favourite members of the ensemble and swing?

  • all? Idk.

Day 26. Favourite pairing? (I don’t mean favourite ship. Your favourite established relationship or friendship in the musical or book).

  • Ramin Karimloo and Hadley Fraser’s Bromance 😀

Day 27. Dream cast for the upcoming movie?

  • I don’t have a list but I definitely want to see:

~Bernadette Peters as Mme. Thenardiers

  • and these people:

~Lea Salonga
~Arthur Espiritu
~Ramin Karimloo
~Carol Burnett
~Michael Crawford
~Sarah Brightman
~Betty Hutton
~Gene Kelly
~Debbie Reynolds
~Audrey Hepburn

  • and since they already got Helena Bonham Carter, Why don’t they include Johnny Depp?

Day 28. Dream cast for the stage show?

  • Same as #27

Day 29. Favourite overall actor you have seen from the musical and why?

  • Ramin Karimloo! He always amazes me.

Day 30. What does Les Miserables mean to you?

  • Les Miz is my Life. Everyday, there a different quotable lyrics that describes my current situation.

 

I think the one who  did this list is from the UK. favoUrite 😀

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
