“Epilogue,” London, 2013. Daniel Koek as Valjean, Na-Young Jeon as Fantine, Samantha Dorsey as Cosette, Rob Houchen as Marius, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Éponine.

Beautiful. Poignant and beautiful. The original staging has never been bettered.

Daniel might be younger than some other Valjeans, but he compensates nicely with his body language. His bent posture, even when resting in his chair, creates a sense that his body is truly racked with pain and with the weariness of old age. So after he dies, it’s especially moving to see him stand fully upright as a spirit and raise his head toward heaven. The fact that his face is still lined with age and sickness even then (since he obviously can’t make his makeup disappear) arguably serves the same touching purpose as Fantine’s still-short hair – those dark eye bags and cheek hollows are his “battle scars,” symbolizing the long, hard earthly journey that’s made him worthy of paradise.

Well done.

Sooooo…. I’ve got splints now which are supposed to stabilise my wrists during every day tasks. What they are not doing is help when I’m writing so I am now taking them off when writing and wearing them at all other times.

It’s okay, I still try and wear the splints when typing, although I also type slower than before with them…

Anyway: I am trying to get back to posting Nocturnal Acquaintances next Friday, 5th June … wait … that’s Barricade Eve. Oops. Um … well, why not - it’s a fitting date, after all.
