Les Miserables - Review
I went to see "Les Mis" in July, 2000, more than ten years after it opened. How has it stood the test of time?
The Les Mis site at Center Stage (UK): synopsis, reviews, recordings, cast lists - the lot! The site has recently (as of May '97) received a total revamp (which includes a new chat room), and this has improved it even more. Definitely worth a visit for Les Mis fans.
Les Mis - La Rue de Vilette
This is an enthusiastic and romantic young girl's reaction to the show and, seen in those terms, it isn't a bad site at all. In fact, it's quite endearing. But don't look for any critical insights. There are lots of nice piccies, though!
Les Mis at the Typhoon Page
One page devoted to the West End production of Les Mis. Lousy spelling and punctuation and a total lack of any critical thought. After telling us the story, the author says, "I thought this musical was very good... The acting was brilliant. Comparing it to musicals like Oliver, it was about even."!
Les Mis : 50 Years On
What would the lyrics of the confrontation between Javert and Valjean be if it had happened fifty years later? This tongue-in-cheek page shows us.
Les Misérables: Beyond the Barricades
"The Internet resource and recordings index" for the musical, so the Webmaster tells us, and there is a huge amount there: news, every recording from all over the world in every languge into which the show has been translated, a site search-engine, a large number of links, an interactive section which includes Les Mis postcards, forums and the inevitable guestbook, plus an awful lot of technical detail about the site and how to optimise your browser for best viewing.
The Likes of Us
The Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that never was. Jen Bogdans explains why!
The Lion King
Yet another page from the Tim Rice site. Like all of them, it is a useful resource.
The Lion King (Official Disney Site)
This is a site which deserves leisurely exploration, for there is a large number of pages, all interesting and enjoyable. The whole site is based around a guide to the show for children, but don't let that put you off: adults will find it equally fascinating. There's everything you can think of, from an outline of the story to pages on African music, from anthropomorphism to Lion King screensavers. Brilliant!
Lord of the Dance
The official site of the offspring of Riverdance. This link goes directly to details about Michael Flatley, the star of the show, who left the Riverdance company after "artistic disagreements". Older visitors might be interested to know that the show's director and choreographer is the founder of Hot Gossip, Arlene Phillips.
Lord of the Dance Site
Created by Joseph Meehan, who also did the unofficial Riverdance
site, this has some information not carried by the official site.
This link will take you to the official site's most glaring omission,
an outline of the show itself.
the Rings - The Musical
Site for the new musical of Tolkien's epic. Flash 6 is needed! There's
a trailer, a message from the producers, details of the creative team,
downloads, and a mailing list.
Love at the
Five and Dime
A new 60s and 70s musical presented at the Westminster Theatre on
21st and 22nd August, 1998 at the Westminster Theatre. There are details
of the show itself, the cast, the writers and the original recording.
