les mis day

cute date idea for theatre nerds

you buy me front row tickets to broadway shows and leave

edit: or you can stay if ur super nice and cute and willing to eat food with me after

not 2 be overdramatic but when J ValJ sings “another story must begin” , rips up his yellow ticket in time to the string and horn beats, then throws the pieces in the moment of nothingness and then your entire soul is suspended in that silence cause u know in 1 second everything is about 2 change then suddenly the waterfall strings of At the End of the Day burst through the silence like a man gasping for air moments after nearly drowning combined with a holy chorus of seraphim ushering in the end of days, is maybe one of the best parts of les mis

one of the les mis quotes that breaks my heart the most is in enjolras’ barricade speech where he says “the nineteenth century is great, but the twentieth century will be happy”

it’s just so hopeful and naive and i think it was something victor hugo himself probably believed. That all the great dramatic events of the 19th century would be a thing of the past and that the 20th century might be a little less romantic, but there would be peace and people would be happy. But he was totally wrong and the 20th century was both world wars and france was occupied and took huge blows to it’s spirit as a nation probably more so than anything before in hugo’s time. It’s such a great line honestly, and it’s perhaps even more poignant because of it’s tragic irony from a modern perspective. Idk that part just breaks my heart to pieces every time. 

We all know that Enjolras was on the barricade to fight for Liberty

And we know Combeferre was on the barricade to fight for Equality

And we know Courfeyrac was on the barricade to fight for Brotherhood


But Bahorel was on the barricade to fight for the right to exist beyond ‘class’

But Feuilly was on the barricade to fight for children without anything else

But Joly was on the barricade to fight for those choosing between medicine and food

But Jehan was on the barricade to fight for the right to live fully

But Bosset was on the barricade to fight for freedom of the future

And Grantaire was on the barricade to fight for his friends, the goodness in life

reblog if you're

highkey having a crisis bc you’re a broke kid who lives very far away from New York and therefore can’t watch shows on Broadway but respect the cast & crew of every single show and don’t want to undermine their hard work by watching bootlegs!!
