Just came back from Les Miserables.

I was surprised: Russell Crowe turns out to have a pleasant baritone. Alas, the role of Javert calls for a man with a sinister bass.

Toby also didn't realize that Les Mis was almost all singing and almost no spoken dialogue, and reports that about 2/3 of the way through he was "Someone just SAY something! Aaaauuugggh!!"

(We did enjoy it: me more so than Toby, but it's not Great Drama, mostly Great Melodrama. Like the stage version, really. :D)

I enjoyed it too. Though I could have managed with fewer closeups of people's nostrils and tears and pores!
