Enjoy! We saw this same company a few months ago - it is a fantastic show!

I've been following Andrew Varela, the actor who plays Javert, on Twitter. He has been tweeting that the cast has been hit by illness really bad. They've had to recruit former cast members from NYC, and used their stage manager as an extra!

It will be interesting to hear your reacting to seeing the stage musical again, after seeing the movie. After seeing the movie, I had to watch some of the Colm Wilkinson clips on Youtube again. Then, everything was set back into order in my Les Mis world.

Eeps! That's kind of like when the real plague went around wiping out people in France during that time!



Has anyone seen Jessica Chastain in The Heiress? I have walked by the theatre a couple times and didn't know who she was, until I saw Zero Dark Thirty, which I loved. Then I realized who she is. Is The Heiress, the same as the old Olivia de Havilland film? I know there was also an old play based on the same as the movie. I don't think I'd be that interested in seeing the show if it is. But, I'd like to know how Jessica Chastain is in it.

Glass slippers are so back.


Anyone else looking forward to Cinderella on Broadway? We have tickets for next month. Seeing it in previews. I am very excited.

I hope it's good but I've found the stories I know the most aren't the best shows

it's got a new book and they have added a few additional Rodgers and Hamnerstein songs.



We have tickets for 2/7. I will gladly post a review. Glass slippers are so back.

I just don't like Laura Osnes. I think it goes back to watching her on "You're The One That I Want".

never watched that show and did not see the "Grease" revival, so I don't have any preconceived ideas about her. Though I did hear she's been good in other roles.

I saw her in Anything Goes. But she was sharing the stage with Sutton so I really didn't notice her.

That was her? I was too busy watching Sutton Foster and Joel Grey to pay attention.


Actually Hope is somewhat of a bland role overshadowed by other characters, and there was a lot of star power on that stage, but as I thibk about it, she was good in the part.

Loved Annie. The girl playing Annie was fantastic and Miss Hannigan was perfect. The dancing was very good but very different from the way the original production was choreographed.

LOVE Katie Finneran. She is the only reason I want to see Annie. She won a Tony for her role in Promises, Promises. Her Marge Macdougall was fantastic.
