I’m also a bit of a musicals geek. I have a few firm favourites (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, West Side Story etc) but my all time favourite is Les Miserables.
I haven’t seen it in a few years, since it moved to the Queens Theatre in fact. When my brother and sister-in-law said they wanted to go it was too good an opportunity to pass up!
It is still as awesome and emotional as ever. No one will ever beat the original Jean Valjean, Colm Wilkinson, but Peter Lockyer did a damn fine job and Danielle Hope was awesome as Eponine. The sets were as amazing as I remember.
With this being my 26th will I go again? Damn right I will!
Edit: A few days later I received an early birthday present, courtesy of my brother and his family. Something he had arranged through the theatre. Very awesome!
