Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"

Slowing the song down is a problem.

I'll use The Sound of Music as an example. The Lonely Goatherd, is an upbeat fast song, but it's also used as the song for dancing the Lšndler. It's slowed down an slightly rearranged, but the same song. If someone with a weaker voice than Julie Andrews or Mary Martin had to have The Lonely Goatherd slowed down to accommodate their range, the Lšndler would have also needed to be slowed down to distinguish it from The Lonely Goatherd.

The same would apply with On My Own, otherwise if it's slowed down it'll be a reprise of Fantine's Death (Come To Me).
