There was a tumblr post a while back about a girl who’s spent years in theatre summer camps, voice lessons, and dance classes and is thrilled to announce that she’s playing an ensemble member with one solo line, and meanwhile this boy is like, “The theatre teacher cornered me after Math class and said I have to play Shrek now,” and I feel like that encapsulates how I feel about Ansel Elgort’s casting in West Side Story.
Most of the leads have Broadway experience, there was a nationwide search for a Maria, and then there’s Tony, and you can just see a high school theatre teacher being like, “I just need a tall moderately handsome leading man type! It’s okay if he can’t really sing! We’ll work on it!! I just need someone who radiates HETEROSEXUALITY!”

Grantaire things I don't see being talked about (at all)
The Grantaire episode of my little barricade boys appreciation post series where I reread the Brick and listed some details I would otherwise forget, things that might be interesting and also more general stuff about the Amis.
we stan a good gourmet
can box, foot-fence and dance
single-stick player
his first monologue is over three pages long
in the English version I have in front of me it says "The Brutus who killed Cæsar was in love with the statue of a little boy." but in the German version it reads: "[...] was in love with a little boy made of marble." and I instantly remembered Grantaire saying about Enjolras "What fine marble!" So... maybe that means nothing but I just wanted to point that out
"I know nothing." -> proceeds with his highly intellectual rant
literally sits on the other side of the room from Joly and Bahorel but still loudly chimes in to their conversation
"I can talk the most superb twaddle for six hours by the clock" - and believe me, nobody would ever doubt that
getting two bottles for himself when entering the Corinthe
calls himself hypochondriac
Bossuet and Joly are R's best friends because they're the only ones that can put up with him for longer than a few hours and you can't convice me otherwise
"Every good girl contains a hero." (So, the context of this quote is honestly very sexist and harassing but I got this feeling that modern!Grantaire would be better than this and frame it in a respectful manner -> this comment is not meant to excuse his behaviour in this situation, I just think that he's always overcompensating things to hide what he really thinks)
wanting to give money to poor people if he were rich
looking tenderly at Enjolras
waking up right in time as Enjolras is close to being shot
《Vive la République! J’en suis.》
《Permets-tu?》
dying at Enjolras' feet
(Episode 1: Courfeyrac, Episode 2: Jehan, Episode 3: Bahorel, Episode 4: Feuilly, Episode 5: Joly, Episode 6: Bossuet, Episode 7: Combeferre, Episode 8: Enjolras)

So Spotify Wrapped just dropped and here are my very not surprising stats. I love Hadestown, can’t you tell?
I feel like listening to Anais’ other stuff bumped her up a ton too, same with Reeve

[images: drew sarich (graf von krolock in tanz der vampire] and his wife ann and fellow actor mandrella at an event/party for the 2019 baden production of kiss of the spiderwoman (kuss der spinnenfrau), in which drew played molina and ann played aurora]
it’s come to my attention that there are some homophobes and transphobes in the tanz der vampire fandom on here. you aren’t welcome. the musical literally has a gay character it in, and other implied bisexual characters, and has employed multiple lgbt actors. i don’t know how you can call yourself a fan if you hate herbert, the canon gay character, or ‘headcannon’ him as straight. if you don’t want to make content about the lgbt characters’s, that’s fine. if you don’t feel comfortable writing lgbt characters because you’re cishet and don’t feel qualified, that’s fine. but taking the canon lgbt characters and writing them as straight is not. if you don’t like lgbt stuff then don’t touch canon lgbt characters. learn to respect human beings and understand what lgbt representation means, why it matters, and why straightwashing isn’t okay. some of these people have interacted with me and if you didn’t recognise the trans flag in my profile picture, hey i’m trans and gay so you probably don’t want to know or respect me so i suggest you block me or learn some compassion. you know what, if you’re a homophobe or transphobe you aren’t just not welcome in the tanz der vampire fandom, but in any musical theatre fandom. am i being too harsh and aggressive? i don’t know, i realised this wasn’t a safe space for me and i thought it was. i’m allowed to be aggressive about wanting to be seen and treat as an equal human being.
anyway, i love these photos of drew and ann, it makes me feel nice to know he’d accept me as the trans man i am, and i’m glad i have a reason to share it, even if it’s a shitty one.

Oh my God. The Cats movie was so bad it turned Andrew Lloyd Weber into a dog person.

Julie Andrews burns the President of Warner Brothers during her Best Actress acceptance speech for Mary Poppins at the 1965 Golden Globes Perhaps one of the biggest scandals of Golden Age Hollywood was the decision by Jack Warner, president of Warner Brothers, to cast Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle in the movie adaptation of My Fair Lady instead of Julie Andrews. Julie originated the role of Eliza on Broadway and in London - which has been heralded as one of the most difficult Broadway characters of all time - for three straight years, stunning audiences around the world. To provide some modern perspective, My Fair Lady was the Hamilton of its time, selling millions of copies of the Broadway recording in a matter of months, every single Broadway and London show sold-out for its entire record-breaking run. To everyone at the time, Julie was Eliza Doolittle, so to see her passed up for the movie adaptaion sent shockwaves through Hollywood. However, because Jack passed on Julie for the role, Walt Disney was able to cast her in Mary Poppins, for which she won both a Golden Globe and an Oscar. Julie stated of the Golden Globes night: "I suddenly realized that if Jack Warner had asked me to do My Fair Lady, which I missed out on, I would never have been able to do Mary Poppins." Her dig - deft, quick, and spoken in her classically sweet nature - took enormous courage, delivering it to the most powerful man in Hollywood in front of all his peers. A member of the audience stated: "Everybody screamed. It was like a thunderous scream, everyone was laughing [including Jack Warner, pictured above]. That was her little sweet revenge."

I’ve seen a lot of thinkpieces claiming that Cats could never have worked as a live-action film because the show critically depends on the unique energy of a bunch of chronically sleep-deprived weirdos running around wearing costumes made out of carpets.
While that’s true as far as it goes, it’s not true that a live-action film cannot capture the energy of a bunch of chronically sleep-deprived weirdos running around wearing costumes made out of carpets.
You just need to Dark Crystal that bastard.
100% muppet cast.

Enjolras things I don't see being talked about (at all)
The Enjolras episode of my little barricade boys appreciation post series where I reread the Brick and listed some details I would otherwise forget, things that might be interesting and also more general stuff about the Amis.
is twenty-two when he is first mentioned (looks younger)
wealthy and an only son
Yes, we get it, Victor, he is freaking beautiful!
is a fan of Jean-Jacques Rousseau
blue eyes
getting teased by Gavroche
"said the handsome Enjolras" (Victor Hugo be like: "Have I ever mentioned that Enjolras is beautiful?")
aging backwards (suddenly he's said to be twenty. Maybe that's just because he looks younger but we all know Victor)
hates death
proclaiming right at the beginning that he's gonna die
standing like a marble statue (Victor: "Did you know? Enjolras is beauti-" "Yes, you might have mentioned it once or twice now.")
offers Gavroche his carbine
taking Mabeuf's coat as the new flag of the barricade
declaring Marius as the new leader of the barricade (You sure about that, Enj?)
"Advice from Enjolras was a command."
"You are abandoned." (Wow, Enj, what a way to motivate people)
communicating with Combeferre without using his words
after Combeferre made the Grantaire-move (as in: three pages monologue), he does it as well
big Feuilly-fan (a little ironic, considering Feuilly's profession as a fan-maker)
wants everyone to have the right to go to school
"Enjolras' marble cheek" (honestly at this point there's this image in my head that Enj is literally just a marble statue that they take everywhere as their mascot and Combeferre or Courf are just voicing him)
might have been called Apollo
one National Guardist almost didn't want to kill him because of his beauty
《Enjolras lui serra la main en souriant.》
pierced to the wall by eight bullets
(Episode 1: Courfeyrac, Episode 2: Jehan, Episode 3: Bahorel, Episode 4: Feuilly, Episode 5: Joly, Episode 6: Bossuet, Episode 7: Combeferre, Episode 9: Grantaire)
