BRAVO! RELEASE A SOUNDTRACK!
Such a fabulous rendition of this timeless musical. Loved seeing Lea Solonga play Fantine this time around, and what an outstanding job she did. The entire cast did a wonderful job. I saw this in theaters, and loved every second of it.
As for the Nick Jonas haters, because I know the onslaut of comments are coming, I am SO PROUD of how good he did. I am 21 years old, and have grown up surronded by broadway, especially Les Mis. I don't understand why it's necessary to bash a talented artist because you don't think he's good enough to play the part. Nick started on broadway, and I was so glad to see him return to his roots. Not everyone has a powerhouse voice like Michael Ball, so the comparisons are not needed. And if I still didn't sway you to stand behind him, take it up with Cameron Mackintosh, because he hand picked him to play this roll.
REGARDLESS, BRAVO! Not sure if a soundtrack is being released, but I hope one is! It would be a great assest to my broadway collection!
Les Miserables= BEST MUSICAL EVER
This concert is the best version of this shows music that I have ever witnessed. I had goosebumps when I saw it for the first time! Every single performer gives a top notch performance and they do justice to Cameron Mackintoshes vision of this phenomenal show. Alfie Boe brings everyone home with his phenomenal portrayal of Jean Valjean, the lovely Lea Salonga performs the role of Fantine better than anyone before her, NIck Jonas, although he was not as strong in voice as the others, played the role of Marius the best that i have ever seen and heard, he truly blew my mind with his rendition of Empty Chairs and Empty Tables, and finally the BEAUTIFUL Samantha Barks played the role of Eponine with incredible passion and emotion that he had me crying during her rendition of On My Own. I suggest this to ALL fans of the show, you will not regret it. Les Miserables maybe 25 years old, but it is a new experience every time you see it performed live.
I've seen Les Mis on broadway and watched several other renditions, and this one ranks with the best. Alfie Boe is amazing and so believable and Matt Lucas is perfect. The performance of Nick Jonas as Marius is the first time that I have felt that the actor fit the profile of a very young man who is experiences his first love. Although his voice is not as "theatrical" as others, it adds to his believable youthfulness. Bravo Nick! I highly recommend this performance to anyone who enjoys theater!
