1. Do you keep up with celebrity news (watch it on TV, read it online, read newspaper or magazines)?

2. What are you wearing today?

3. College-did you go? Did you stay home, go away? Did/does/will your children stay home or go away?

I have to say I've never ever liked Marius in any stage production.. I neer got why the girls were so gaga over him.. but Eddie Redmayne is hands down the best marius I've ever seen in the movie..I think the ability to close up on him was important for that number.. and he did nail it.   I wasn't in LOVE with Jackman as Valjean but I did like him.. I'm such a Colm Wilkinson purist :-)

Spring: Do you have some kind of issue with community college? Do you find it an inferior choice?

Ummmm...since I attended one then the answer is obviously no.

m confused, I thought you said you hadn't seen it?  I can't keep up with this contant spin.

Nope, I was shunned because did not read the book and I said I would like to see it when it comes back to Broadway. I have seen the movie and the play from London that aired on my local public broadcasting station.

Pumpkin, like Katie I have always thought the teenaged live story was pretty lame. Cosettecus less a character than a plot device. But the kid who did Marius in the movie was terrific. His "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables" tore me up. And Hugh Jackman is fabulous. Knowing that he is an adoptive father IRL, I just fell apart at the scene in the Inn when he meets Cosette. And Jean Vsljean is just probably one of my three favorite fictional characters ever.

Didn't the movie just come out last year, it was in the 2012 Oscar's right, so only known for a year?  It's been a huge hit well before that, that's why they made it into a movie....right?

I trust your judgement, I just might have to see the movie.
