The Christmas Present I Am Looking Forward To…

Les Misérables (musical)Les Misérables“, the movie, opens in the US on December 25th. I can’t wait. I’ve been playing the Broadway Cast album over and over… love the music.

And, from the 25th Anniversary TV special, here are four different Jean Valjeans singing “Bring Him Home“. The first soloist, Colm Wilkinson — the original Jean Valjean — will be playing the Bishop of Digne in the Les Misérables movie. Truly magnificent!

 

Colm Wilkinson is worth the whole gig!

Half a year to go and I can’t wait to see the film of Les Mis…

They have released a “teaser” and that’s just what it is. I am teased. I’m really looking forward to the December release of the Les Miserables movie… not the kind of thing I usually get so fired up about.

Another movie I can’t wait for…

December is going to premiere the film musical Les Miserables whose score I have played over and over for years (but I can’t on WSHC because the Music Director has a ban on show music – a small minded person)… and I hear there is at least 1 new song for the film.

Hugh Jackman will be playing Jean Valjean, and, get this, Russell Crowe will be Inspector Javert. There’s a pair who can really go at each other.
