- Sunday in the Park with Fantine
We meet Fantine when she's carefree and still with Cosette's father; the Thenardiers on a day when they look ALMOST respectable; the mysterious M.Madeleine.
- Righteousness vs “Righteousness”
Continuing my re-read of the book: Javert makes his entrance as one of M. Madeleine's few detractors, and the system chews up Fantine and spits her out.
- Who IS This Guy, Anyway?
Javert reports M. Madeleine, Jean Valjean is found, and the mayor of the town must decide whether to let another man go to prison in his place.
- Get Me To The Courthouse On Time
Getting to not-Valjean's trial is a lot more complicated than a scene change. It's more like Hurley trying to make Flight 815.
- Off the Deep End
Valjean is recaptured, tried, and sent back to prison. He doesn't stay long, which may be why the musical skips over the Orion entirely.
- A Few Thoughts on the Mysterious Monsieur Madeleine
The crack shot who never kills a small bird (like a lark). No reason to fear new Inspector Javert - at first. And he surprises everyone.
