The song On My Own was stuck in my head for a few days now. Then, I mentioned it to Sam and being the musical fanatic that she is, our conversation turned to Les Miserables.
There we discovered that there’ll be a musical film produced in Britain that will be released in December 2012. Hugh Jackman will play Jean Valjean, Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Helena Boneham Carter as Madamme Thernadier.
Isn’t it exciting? The 1998 film was a bore because there was no singing. HAHA.
Then, Sam also mentioned Lea Salonga’s journey with Les Miserables. In the 10th year anniversary concert, she played Eponine. And in the 25th year concert, she was Fantine.
Wow. Lea’s really making a mark in the world of musical theater. I do hope that they’ll be doing this play here in the country.
