    Javert isn't evil :mad: He's just misunderstood!
    Exactly and he's only trying to do his job isnt he?

    (oh and....Before you say another word javert, before you chain me up like a slave again, listen to me, there is something i must do.........is that right ? )

    Lol, yeh, his voice stands out more... mainly cause his part is simpler...
    this is what valjean says though:
    Believe of me what you will
    There is a duty that I'm sworn to do
    You know nothing of my life
    All I did was steal some bread
    You know nothing of the world
    You would sooner see me dead
    But not before I see this justice
    done
    I am warning you Javert
    I'm a stronger man by far
    There is power in me yet
    My race is not yet run
    I am warning you Javert
    There is nothing I won't dare
    If I have to kill you here
    I'll do what must be done

    Can I join?
    I am Jean Valjean in a production of Les Misérables School Edition!
    Whats the chance of a usergroup? How about using the recognisable Les Mis image as the logo?

    Thank you
    I personally think Javert has some of the best lines in the show. I secretly wanted to be Javert, but when you are offered Valjean. you don't complain!

    Awww that's adorable! Yes I suppose you can't really complain! Your no doubt excellent talent would get lots of attention as Valjean. All good actors secretly want to be Javert . Pity me though, I'd need to crossdress to be Javert :eek:

    It wouldnt be that bad if the person who got Javert could sing with the passion needed to be Javert, and act as though they are Inspector Javert - but they cant!

    That's the worst thing! When someone else is doing the part you want and they're not doing it well. Drives me mad :mad:

    And this I swear to you tonight: There is no place for you to hide: Your child will live in my protection: Wherever you may hide away: And I will raise her to the light: I swear to you I will be there.

    Yes I always listen (and sing along to) to Javerts part, in the confrontation I only know Javerts lines and have never even deciphered JVJ's

    best song:VALJEAN (to COSETTE)
    Now you are here
    Again beside me
    Anow I can die in peace
    For now my life is blessed...

    COSETTE
    You will live, Papa, you're going to live
    It's too soon, too soon to say goodbye!

    VALJEAN
    Yes, Cosette, forbid me now to die
    I'll obey
    I will try.
    On this page
    I write my last confession
    Read it well
    When I, at last, am sleeping
    It's a story
    Of those who always loved you
    Your mother gave her life for you
    Then gave you to my keeping.

    FANTINE
    Come with me
    Where chains will never bind you
    All your grief
    At last, at last behind you
    Lord in Heaven
    Look down on him in mercy.

    VALJEAN
    Forgive me all my trespasses
    And take me
    to your glory.

    VALJEAN, FANTINE, EPONINE
    Take my hand
    And lead me to salvation
    Take my love
    For love is everlasting
    And remember
    The truth that once was spoken
    To love another person
    Is to see the face of God.

    I LOVE Les Mis... My girlfriend's drama company performed it Feb '04, and I went to watch it, and then they did a 2nd run in September... and i went to see it twice in 2 days (fir and sat matinee), and would've stayed for the sat night performance but didn't have enough money
    Obviously, I would be Javert if I could perform in it
    I have the CD and love it... 'Confrontation', 'Work Song' and 'On My Own' are my favourites... pity that 'In this nest of *****s and vipers, let one speak who saw it all...' isn't on the CD.
    I think I might be going to see the West End performance for my 18th b'day... yay!!! yay yay yay!!!!
    I've never seen a DVD of the musical... I have the one with John Malkovich as Javert though, but is there a musical DVD... of the actual show? Please tell me there is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BTW, can I join the Society?

    Awww. I was just listening to it:

    And now I'm all alone again
    Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
    Without a home, without a friend,
    Without a face to say hello to.
    And now the night is near
    Now I can make believe he's here.

    Sometimes I walk alone at night
    When everybody else is sleeping
    I think of him and then I'm happy
    With the company I'm keeping
    The city goes to bed
    And I can live inside my head.

    On my own
    Pretending he's beside me
    All alone, I walk with him till morning
    Without him
    I feel his arms around me
    And when I lose my way I close my eyes
    And he has found me

    In the rain the pavement shines like silver
    All the lights are misty in the river
    In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
    And all I see is him and me for ever and forever

    And I know it's only in my mind
    That I'm talking to myself and not to him
    And although I know that he is blind
    Still I say, there's a way for us

    I love him
    But when the night is over
    He is gone, the river's just a river
    Without him the world around me changes
    The trees are bare and everywhere
    The streets are full of strangers

    I love him
    But every day I'm learning
    All my life I've only been pretending
    Without me his world will go on turning
    A world that's full of happiness
    That I have never known!

    I love him
    I love him
    I love him
    But only on my own.


    I love this song
