A few nights ago, I had the opportunity to see the musical Les Misérables (also lovingly referred to as "Les Miz"). Les Miz happens to be my favorite musical of all time. Which is really saying something considering I have seen a lot. Les Miz only tours about every 4 years and I am always looking forward to the next time I am able to see it. We had amazing seats... 4th row, center.

I am also super excited that the movie adaptation of the musical Les Miz will be released this December! So excited!!! The cast includes Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen, and more. Side note: There is already a movie of the book version (starring Liam Neeson), but the new one will be a musical.
And just because I am so in love with this musical, I thought I would share a video of one of my favorite songs, On My Own, sang by the character Éponine. Fun fact: This version was sang by Samantha Barks who will be playing Éponine in the movie!
Dang, I wish I could sing like that! I could add more videos of songs that I love for the musical, but that would create a very lengthy post. ;)
All in all, it was a fabulous night! If Les Misérables visits a town near you, I highly recommend you go to see it! If you have seen Les Mis, I would love to hear what you thought of it.
Until next time!
