If I have to choose a Broadway musical that I absolutely love, I would have to say Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables. It was the first ever musical I saw on Broadway when I was 18-years old. What struck me when I saw the musical was that I wasn’t aware that it was the musical version of the film I saw in black and white, and I loved it then.
There have been several versions of Les Misérables in movies that nothing that caught my interest to see. Yet this one, I may just have to take time and see it. Anne Hathaway is true to her character as Fantene and even had her glorious crown of hair chopped off for the film. Other A-listers are in the film such as Russell Crowe as Javert, Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette to name a few.
Here’s the first installment of the trailer. The movie is due to come out Christmas 2012.
