Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: Clopin acts a bit more like a crimelord in the stageplay. He demands a cut of Esmeralda's earnings from her dance at the Feast of Fools and when she balks at this he tells her she can either follow his rules or get out of town.

Added DiffLines:

** AdaptationalWimp: Relative to the movie, this applies to Frollo, though much of it simply comes from him being less of a card carrying villain. In the ending of the movie, he tries to kill Quasimodo and Esmeralda himself, and the climax is them trying to escape him. The climax of the play however is him struggling to escape as [[spoiler:Quasimodo drags him to the edge of Notre Dame before throwing him off.]] However in the play, Frollo displays no desire to hurt Quasimodo, so he was no doubt taken off guard by Quasimodo's actions.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDisposingVillain: Averted unlike the movie version and like pretty much every other Disney production. Instead of Frollo falling to his death while trying to kill Quasimodo and Esmeralda, Quasimodo drags him to the edge of Notre Dame and throws him to his death while he begs for Quasimodo to let him go.

Added DiffLines:

* ArcWords: Sanctuary. Even more so than the film.


Added DiffLines:

* IronicEcho: "The wicked shall not go unpunished." Said multiple times by Frollo throughout the show before being thrown back in his face by Quasimodo moments before [[spoiler:Quasimodo throws him off the top of Notre Dame.]]

* AdaptationalHeroism: The La Jolla production restores Frollo's original role as an AntiVillain. He's much more sympathetic here than in the film, and while he's still ''very'' cruel and sinister, he's genuinely fatherly to Quasimodo. He also never kills Quasi's mother (although he does attempt to kill the baby until he stops himself from doing so).

He also never kills Quasi's mother (although he does attempt to kill the baby until he stops himself from doing so). And unlike the movie, at the end he doesn't try to kill Quasimodo over Esmeralda's body, he tries to comfort him saying things can now return to how they used to be. Unfortunately for Frollo however, Quasimodo isn't so ready to forgive him.


Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Played with Frollo. Unlike the movie, he is genuinely fatherly to Quasimodo even if he is a cruel man. However at the end when Quasimodo angrily asks him who he has ever loved, he is unable to bring himself to say Quasimodo, he can only say he loved his brother.


Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: Frollo has a reason for his hatred of Gypsies in the stage version. He watched his brother descend into hedonism with the gypsies and eventually die of the pox years later. Frollo blames the Gypsies for all of this.

** The sequel confirms the Gargoyles are real magical creatures and ''not'' Quasi's imagination; [[spoiler: At the end,the Gargoyles are sad to lose Quasimodo and hope that Madellaine will take care of him. Then ''Madellaine'' winks at the Gargoyles and tells them she'll take good care of Quasi causing the shocked Gargoyles do to a literal JawDrop]]

** In "Hellfire", Frollo calls the common crowd "licentious" a somewhat archaic term for "sexually promiscuous".

*** But also intentionally averted during the same song. A visual effects supervisor went through the animation of the song frame-by-frame to ensure Esmerelda was fully clothed at all times to ensure the G rating.

* DisneyFication: You wouldn't think Victor Hugo's original novel would be suitable fare for a children's movie. Despite being one of Disney's darkest movies, they still made it much nicer than the book Esmeralda was nicer, Phoebus was nicer, Quasimodo was nicer, there was a clearer line between good and evil, and the good guys didn't all die or kill themselves at the end. Even more strangely, the Disney movie is actually ''darker'' than the novel in a few respects; gypsy genocide isn't on the agenda at all in the book, nor is Paris burned. Also, Disney changed Quasimodo's public humiliation from simple corporal punishment to the whim of a sadistic crowd.
