Photo Flash: Christine Jimenez' Les Miserables Artwork
In honor of Les Miserables' Broadway opening tonight, BroadwayWorld proudly presents the artwork of Christine Jimenez.
Jimenez has been creating artworks (mostly for the various casts of Les Miserables) for the last 3 1/2 years. She began creating portraits and caricatures before the Broadway company closed, and has also produced art for the Third National Tour company and for the London company. She most recently drew charcoal portraits of the 6 principal cast of the show--Alexander Gemignani, Norm Lewis, Aaron Lazar , Adam Jacobs, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Ali Ewoldt. Jimenez plans to present Lazar with her caricature of him at Les Miserables' opening night.
Les Miserables, in its highly anticipated Broadway return, began previews at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street) on Saturday, October 24th, and will open on Thursday, November 9th. The epic musical is set to play a limited six-month engagement.
With music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, with original French text by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel and additional material by James Fenton, Les Miserables is based on the sprawling novel by Victor Hugo. Directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, Les Miserables originally ran on Broadway from 1987 through 2003.
