I Love Les Miserable

I have a new obsession.
Les Miserable
The story is so wonderful. Jean Valjean is one of my new favorite literary heroes. Cosette, Inspector Javert, Marius, Fontine, Thenardier, Enjolras, Eponine…
The music, the costumes, the cast, the set, the whole production is exquisite!
I’ve seen some videos on YouTube of other productions but this one is my favorite.
Its funny, sometimes the main hero or heroine isn’t my favorite. I really like Eponine because I love the songs she sings.
Have you seen Les Miz? Which song is your favorite? Which character is your favorite? Or least favorite? Who would make up your ideal cast?
Here are two of my favorite songs.
One Day More

Les Misérables has been my all-time fave musical since I first saw it in 6th grade. I think I've seen it 5 times, twice on Broadway. I plastered my room growing up with every bit of Miz memoribilia I could get my hands on, (waaay harder back before the internet. ;-) :-P)

I always dreamed I'd play Eponine on Broadway. She has always been my most beloved; Cosette seems so milquetoast by comparison!

Wow! That was amazing!!! I've never heard of this before! I love the second one, "On my Own". That was incredible! When she hit that one strong note it gave me the chill bumps. ;) I think it would be so much fun to be in a big production like that!! So is this a broadway musical? Where can you watch it at? Is it on you tube?
