Great to hear that you will get to see it onstage! As good as the concert version is, there is no comparison to seeing it actually "acted out". Alfie Boe is great, but if you get a chance, you should check out the 10th anniversary concert version. It is available at Amazon. Colm Wilkinson originated the role in London and then was the first to play it on Broadway, and he will always be my favorite Jean Valjean! He sings a bit of "Bring Him Home" at the encore with Alfie and the two current Valjeans.
