Les Miserables - videos from the 1995 "Dream Cast" concert

This past Sunday I was privileged to see the Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof at the Cleveland (Ohio) Playhouse (the nations largest preforming arts center outside of New York.)
- but that would be a blog post in itself....just describing the striking beauty of the theater lobby, the thrill of hearing the first notes of "Tradition" swell to the ceiling...it was incredible.

Now my sister, mom and I are crazily excited to be *hopefully* seeing Broadway's Les Miserables next April.

:swoon:

Plays (particularly Broadway) are my latest passion. There is something awe-inspiring about seeing a live performance, all the colors, the voices of the actors, the props, the dancing and the music - a feast for the eyes and ears.

Sometimes I wonder if a movie could ever impact me again. ;)

Here are a few of my favorite videos from the 1995 "Dream Cast" concert version of Les Mis. Breathtaking! There are some seriously talented singers in these videos, and I've watched them so many times in the past couple of days, I think the songs will be permanently stuck in my head. ^_^




*special note about above vid*
Colm Wilkinson is my newest favorite singer. Listen to the passion in his voice! Gorgeous. And the song, so sad yet pretty. What do you think?

  2. Hello! This is Alexandra from "Of Trims and Frills and Furbelows" and YOU ARE RIGHT! We have soooo much in common! I have just LOVED visiting--and you're looking at a fellow Broadway FANATIC. I think Broadway music is *almost* all I listen to or sing. ;-) And what's more, Les Miz is one of my FAVORITE musicals!!! HOW EXCITING that you may be able to see it! Yikes! That's so awesome!!!

    And I love Colm Wilkinson too. Did you know he played The Phantom in...Canada, I believe. While I am a staunch Michael Crawford/Phantom person, as you know, Colm's "Music of the Night" was pretty incredible, *almost* as good as Michael's. ;-)

    Oh, my goodness, I love your blog! Thanks SO much for dropping by! I'm going through your "I Love" list and nodding the whole way...;-)
