Hated just hated the stage version of this lousy Brit musical. And what I’ve seen of the movie version? Hugh Jackman is NOT aging well.

Its not a Brit musical, its a French one that has been translated into English.

My introduction to Les Miserables w as on stage in Boston. I was enraptured by the stage version. I watched TCM present three back to back screen versions a few nights ago and loved even the black and white rendering of this awesome story.

EWTN has presented a couple of programs on the new movie that made me believe it to be well worth seeing again. I hope the operatics don’t get entirely lost on the audience’s appreciation of a classic story of Good and Evil, virtue and vice. We are so lacking for healthy lessons at the movies.

What didn’t you like about the stage version? Did you see a bad production? It obviously endures.

Agree with you miss m.

Hollywood has once again ruined a perfectly good stage musical.
