I listened to the entire Les Mis original Broadway soundtrack (two CDs, each about an hour long, I think) on the way back from New York yesterday. w00t! Best musical ever. I'm planning on reading the book this year (but then again, that's what I said about Don Quixote last summer, and I'm still not really that far in that  one...), 'cause my school library has it. Yayyyy. 

How exactly to they change the musical to make a "Youth Version", though? (They do have one- Cam Brown was in a local production during freshman year.) Get rid of the naughty bits in "Master of the House"? ("Everybody raise a glass! Raise it up the master's ass!") Pretend Javert never committed suicide? Totally axe "Lovely Ladies"? (Y'know, the prostitute song.) Probably all of the above.
