This, there's a reason it didn't work out well on Broadway, etc.

Also the American version has a lot of crappy plot changes; the anniversary version they just made standardizes everything and fixes a lot of problems. See the following:

I watched pic related expecting something like Ches and was disappointed...

I didn't really like the Arbiter's performance as much, but all the leads were GOAT.

I really liked the reprise of the "Florence Quits" theme at the end of the Mountain Duet.

>>65006340
Chess script is utter shit. It only would work if they threw it away and make another who is only vaguely based in the original one.

Its songs are god-tier, though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYZF5BtrdpA

>>65006340

I think the biggest problem for me with Chess is that there are a lot of songs that don't stand out that well, compare that to Les Mis where EVERY song stands out and is memorable.

The ones that do in Chess are easily as good as the good ones in the more popular musicals, but the rest drag it down; they're not bad, they're just forgettable.

Florence Quits and Nobody's Side are my picks for strongest, One Night In Bangkok obviously too due to it's international single status. There are some others that are also good >>65008607 for example brings in the Florence Quit's theme again to great effect.

Les Mis by contrast is almost entirely callbacks to different themes, and is basically symmetrical with it's songs, re-utilizing the strong melodies.
>>
>>65008607

yeah it would have to be a musical to be at all successful, but the script for the 2008 stage version is much stronger than the original concept album.

There's more character development with the backstory of Florence's father, which I think was from the West End adaptation. The Broadway changes were all worthless.
>>
Chess would be much better if they simply made the American and the Russian a couple, let's be honest.

The story would be a lot more simple and easy going, the Russian's wife is a filler character.

None of the song reprises save for Javert's leitmotiff and Bring Him Home in the end have any reasons to be reprised when they are. Why is On My Own a reprise of Come to Me? Why is Empty Chairs a reprise of Myriel saving Valjean in the prologue?
>>
>>65009246
One Night in Bangkok is great too but serves for nothing in the story.

I overall like the music in Webber's version better but I feel this does much more justice to the story.
>>
>>65012929
I don't want to spoil the surprise if you ever do go see it, but it begins with the audience on a dancefloor and it's set up like a disco with two stages on either end which they perform on. But as the show goes on they move the stages around while you dance and it gets really crazy. It's one of the most innovative uses of crowd participation I've seen. Totally would recommend it, even though the songs are really forgettable.

Made a thread about this earlier, but it died very quickly.
Do you think there's any advantages theater has over film? And what are some ways they could be replicated?
>>
>>65015278
Theatre is much lively since you have a room full of people and its going in live. Then you also have the freedom to go off script if something happens or you can add a joke if its a comedy. Then the actors can also feed off the audience which makes for a better show. I don't think it can really be replicated due to how in the moment it is.
