Broadway World: @MsLeaSalonga Reviews Movie Version of Les Miz, the Show She Help to Make a HIt

posted by Randall

theaterLes Miserables Broadway Star Lea Salonga not only went to see the new move version of the stage hit. She wrote a review of it.

My reasons for seeing the movie were threefold. First, having participated in its multiple live versions (stage musical and concert), I wanted to see how the show would translate to the big screen. Second, I had some friends and colleagues participating in the movie (including Samantha Barks as Eponine, whom I had the pleasure of working with on the 25th Anniversary Concert, as well as Frances Ruffelle, “Les Miz’s” original Eponine who plays one of the main “whores” … she was quite easy to spot). Third, I had my casting curiosities and wanted to see how Hugh Jackman (as Valjean), Russell Crowe (Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Sacha Baron Cohen (M. Thenardier), Helena Bonham Carter (Mdm. Thenardier), Aaron Tveit (Enjolras) and Eddie Redmayne (Marius) would fare in these very iconic and beloved roles.

 So what did Lea think of the movie? Her review was published by Broadway World.
