I really dislike Cameron Mackintosh.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

Yankeefan...I actually heard it was Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick (in drag).

Why? It was a good show, but it had its run and its time is up. Its time for something new.
There's a lot I am not certain of...

This is unbelievably cool! This show so much more than Phantom deserves to be the longest running...

Innnnteresting! Can't wait to see how casting develops! And maybe -- just MAYBE -- we'll get a decent English-language cast recording out of it.

I'm extremely excited...considering I missed it the first time around.

Well, just as I was about to jump up and down with excitement, I began to think....wait a minute....are we going to get the cut-down cast and half-virtual orchestra that London got the last time the show moved theatres there? I hope not, but it IS Cameron Mackintosh. If so, leave me with my existing Les Miz memories and count me out.

I'm already wondering whether this will be considered a revival -- it has been 3 1/2 years, after all. On the other hand, it will be the exact same staging, set, direction, etc. On the OTHER hand (I'm starting to sound like Tevye), revivals have reproduced staging and choreography in the past and have still been considered revivals. Or with the 6 month engagement it could be considered a special theatrical event, but I suspect they'll put it down as a revival to make the performers eligible for the Tonys (it is, perhaps suspiciously, a 6 month engagement, the minimum amount of time required in the new Tony category).

You know what. I always think they should cast Hugh Jackman as Enjolras in "Hey, Mr. Producer" concert. I am serious.

And if there is a Les Miz movie, Jackman could be a nice choice if he's a little younger.

I am excited only because I have never seen it live. That is sad since I am well into my 20's. I had the oppertunity to see it on a school trip in college, but chose not to spend the money. Zoinks! Now, I have a chance to see it.

Other than my selfishness, I have to ask why, as well.
