We’ve watched the 25th anniversary dvd about 5 times. Lea
Salonga as Fantine is marvelous.We’re going to see her in
concert in June. Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean has to be
heard to be believed how amazing he is. Also, Matt Lucas
as Thenardier is excellent.Both of them will be on stage
this June thru Nov. in London. We’re thinking of going to
London to see them preform.
I actually liked the 10th Anniversary Version better...except for Alfie Boe. Oh my goodness...what a voice.
In the 10th Anniversary Dream Cast production, Lea Salonga played Eponine, and I thought she fit that part well. Of course everybody ages, and I guess she was too old to play that part in the 25th, thus the Fantine character was hers.
