A few weeks ago I attended the Los Angeles premiere (with my pal Cindy) of Les Misérables, the award-winning musical (translated into 21 different languages, productions have played in 42 countries / 291 cities) which is now celebrating it’s 25th anniversary! I did see the show years ago on Broadway twice, I’m not going to lie, it’s not certainly not my favorite musical (I’m more of Miss Saigon fan, which was created by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, the makers behind LesMiz) but I actually enjoyed the production this time around way more than I remember. It totally felt fresh, the cast was incredible, I absolutely loved Éponine‘s On My Own, performed by Chasten Harmon. The show’s only playing at downtown’s Ahmanson Theatre until July 31st, so don’t miss out on seeing this spectacular show.
