Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"
I haven't seen any of the earlier theatrical incarnations of Les Mis, but they have to get Alphie Boe: he's amazing as Val Jean!
Agreed; I was blown away by his performance in the 25th anniversary concert. He's still not as good as Colm Wilkinson, but then again, nobody is.
On a related note, I think that Norm Lewis is a fantastic Javert; he might be the best one I've seen.
Odo: Your faith seems to have led you to something of a contradiction.
Kira: I don't see it as a contradiction.
Odo: I don't understand.
Kira: That's the thing about faith. If you don't have it, you can't understand it and if you do, no explanation is necessary.
