I saw it in Atlanta at the Fox (after all those years in NY I was DRAGGED there) and fell in LOVE with it!! My all time favorite play!

Les Mis is playing in Los Angeles next summer for about 6 weeks. We feel that our boys will be old enough to see it (almost 16 and 13 by then) so we're going to combine it with our Disneyland trip!!!!!

I liked it when she sand On My Own better for the 10th Anniversary, but she's still wonderful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqb9FLKdSj8

Eagerly awaiting 25th anniversary broadcast in theatres! We lived in London 1987-1989 and saw it almost 50 times! DD#2 got a job ushering at the National Theatre in WDC one summer just so she could see it 50 MORE times. Best principals: Colm Wilkinson (Valjean), Michael Ball (Marius), Laura Hampton (Eponine), Rebecca Storm (Fantine), David Delve (Thenardier), Gaye Soper (Madame T.) - Just my opinion!

I am in total heaven tonight. My girls are home, the 10th anniversary dvd is in, and I'm enjoying date night with Colm!

I'm such a nerd...I made it "ALL' the way to "At the End of the Day" before the tears started. I might as well bring a wheelbarrow full of tissues to the concert in movie theatres!

I love Les Mis!!!! I have seen it 6 times and my favorite was when my mom took me to Toronto to see it with Colm Wilkinson. Amazing!!! I'll have to check the site to see if it is coming anywhere around here. Would love to see it any chance I get!

I'm so glad I opened this thread! Just looked and they are coming about 4 hours from me! 4 hours is a perfect drive!

What's the youngest age you would take a DS to see this? I saw it twice, but it was before kids and would like to take DS's this time....they are not into theater AT ALL and fairly young, but heck---this is Les Mis!!

I'm thinking maybe first or second grade?

We started taking our kids to "kid-friendly" musicals (as in "Annie" or "Beauty and the Beast") around kindergarten.

But Les Mis is longer, darker. And you might have to explain Fantine's illegitimate pregnancy.

good point. DS's will be in 1st grade and 4th by then......I guess they could always take a nap if they didn't like it

New CD available now! We had to order the 25th anniversary cd from Barnes and Noble. Right now, they seem to be the only store in the US carrying them. In fact, our store didn't even have them in stock. We ordered it and picked it up. The official title is: Les Miserables Live! The 2010 Cast Album.

I had been worried about not having Colm's voice as Valjean. I am thrilled to say that John Owen Jones is incredible!! He comes really, really close to Colm. There is some new orchestration, and I really like most of it. I don't like the beginning of I Dreamed a Dream at all. In fact, the actress playing Fantine seems very whiny, frantic, and a bit desperate. Gareth Gates plays Marius, and let's just say the nicest comment I can make is that he's no Michael Ball!


Now, the big news: The list of theatres that will be showing the 25th Anniversary Concert Movie is beginning to appear. The link I'm posting is showing the complete list of Georgia theatres. Fandango also has some of these theatres listed. For us (and I don't know if this is the case nationwide), it's one day only and one showing only: Wednesday, November 17 at 7:30. Hope that helps.

Oh, and the cast for the cd and the movie are different except for Cosette.
