Russell Crowe to Make Joe's Pub Debut with Alan Doyle and Samantha Barks, Dec 8
Les Miserables film star Russell Crowe will make his Joe's Pub debut in a one-night-only "Indoor GArden Party" concert on December 8, featuring Alan Doyle and Les Mis co-star Samantha Barks. The pair previously joined Crowe for his "Indoor GArden Party" at the Gramercy Theatre last month.
Barks will appear alongside Crowe this winter in Tom Hooper's film adaptation of the musical Les Misérables. She will play 'Eponine' and Crowe will play 'Javert'. The long-running Broadway musical, based on Victor Hugo's 19th-century French fable of social injustice, will come to the big screen on Christmas Day.
The film, under the direction of Tom Hooper, will also star Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thernardier, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier. Original stage stars Colm Wilkinson, Frances Ruffelle and others will appear as well.
