Tropes in HoND: Beware the Nice Ones
"The sweeter, gentler, more polite, more peaceful, and overall nicer a character is, the worse it will be for whomever is in the vicinity when they’re subject to one round too many of Break the Cutie, or Dude, Where’s My Respect?, a Rant Inducing Slight, or hitting their Berserk Button or Rage Breaking Point. What was once a sweet and nice individual suddenly snaps and becomes something far worse than the Big Bad could have expected.”

you can lie to yourself and your minions
you can claim they you haven’t a qualm
but you never can run from nor hide
what you’ve done from the eyes
the very eyes of N o t r e D a m e
'Hunchback' Musical: Gargoyles to be played by puppets? Plus staging and marketing info
So I ran across La Jolla Playhouse’s San Diego Tourism Marketing District (SDTMD) application for funding from December 2013 and it’s filled with some info we haven’t heard of before. [LINK]
According to them…
- The musical will draw more heavily on the Gothic setting and darker tone of (Victor) Hugo’s novel.”
- The production team wants “the focus to be on the actors and the music”
- The setting will “be relatively simple and inspired by the medieval style.”
- It will also include "built-in puppetry that the actors will manipulate as Quasimodo interacts with the gargoyles in the bell tower."
