the Les Miserables ensembleLes Misérables is an epic musical, and Countryside Community Theatre should be commended for its noble effort in staging the multi-layered, much-loved piece by composer Claude-Michel Schönberg and lyricist Herbert Kretzmer. Director David Turley and his cast treat the material with the respect it deserves. Friday night’s performance, however, was still riddled with problems, many of them of a technical nature.

Countryside Community Theatre presents Les Miserables“You know, it’s been interesting,” says Christina Myatt, president of the board of directors for the Eldridge-based Countryside Community Theatre (CCT). “Because we wanted to do something big for our 30th anniversary, and this is definitely something big. But when people hear what we’re actually doing, they either say, ‘That’s really great!’ or they say, ‘You people are insane.’”

Best Actor Daniel Day-LewisSeth MacFarlane, I thought, did a fine job hosting the 85th Academy Awards ceremony. He turned out to be a fine choice for the frequently thankless Oscar-emcee position, tossing in some fine jokes in between the generally fine production numbers and mostly fine acceptance speeches ... .

I’m sorry, but I am alone in thinking that last night’s telecast, in the end, was just a little too “fine”?

It’s incomplete, with such 2012 releases as Zero Dark Thirty, Amour, Rust & Bone, Arbitrage, The Intouchables, Not Fade Away, and Here Comes the Boom (ha ha!) still requiring my viewing.
