STAGE TUBE: Valjeans Unite! Ramin Karimloo and Colm Wilkinson Sing 'Bring Him Home'
The legendary original star of LES MISERABLES, Colm Wilkinson, returned to the musical that first brought him to international acclaim to perform the role of the Bishop in the Toronto production- a role he played in the Oscar-winning film adaptation. As the Bishop he passed the torch, or the silver candlesticks that his character passes on to Jean Valjean, to Ramin Karimloo, the young Canadian star who has won unanimous raves for his portrayal of Valjean -- a role he will reprise in the upcoming new Broadway production. In the video below, Karimloo and Wilkinson unite to perform "Bring Him Home."
This newly re-imagined Les Miserables, which grossed over $160 million in its recent two and a half year American tour, is currently breaking box office records, receiving rave reviews and capacity crowds with the Canadian production at the Princess of Wales in Toronto starring Ramin Karimloo, who will play Jean Valjean on Broadway. International productions of the new Les Miserables have been met with equal success and acclaim in the U.K., France, Spain, Japan and Korea and will open soon in Australia. This new version of Les Miserables, which premiered in the U.K. in 2009, inspired filmmakers to make last year's immensely successful Oscar/Golden Globe/BAFTA winning-movie.
