    "If you regularly watch the historical shows and specials on PBS and the History Channel, his voice is everywhere. He'll be missed."

    I believe he was the voice of FDR in the recent Burns series on the Roosevelts. Very sad news.

    "I'm not going to lie... I loved Ashley Brown's portrayal of Mary Poppins and I cried when she flew over the audience."

    That reminded me... the first time I saw Mary Poppins on stage in London, I found myself getting very emotional during Feed The Birds. This happened every time I saw the show both in London and at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Not sure why -- might be a nostalga thing, since MP was the very first movie I ever saw.

    Bring Him Home -- reminds me sometimes of the night we brought my firefighter brother home from the hospital. He was dying (multiple myeloma contracted from working at Ground Zero)& his wife wanted to get him back home -- he died two days later.

    Depending on the performers, in Les Mis, pretty much from Little Fall of Rain to the end.

    Tell My Father from Civil War. I saw the musical at Ford's Theatre in WAshington DC and was fine, but sometime after my father passed away I

    Very much enjoyed it. I was reminded of the last time I saw him live, which was when he conducted the Washington Pops (I think)in a salute to Sondheim that included Brian Darcy James and Maria Friedman, among others. At one point during the concert he pointed out two young girls in the front row with their parents, expressing great pleasure that there were young people like these girls in the audience and how great it was that the parents brought them to the show. He invited the family backst

    "Alfie Boe's concert at Joe's Pub was fantastic. And he did a stripped down acoustic version of Bring Him Home that was absolutely beautiful. I would love to see him in the revival."

    Bummer about Andrew Varela...

    Ah, ok, he was in the tour. I saw the show in London, and someone else played Don Alejandro. Thanks.

    CONAires, what rold did Earl play in the Zorro musical? I saw that three times and don't remember him being part of the cast.
  • Congratulations to Rob and the BWW team!  Mar 1 2013, 02:31:19 PM
    Wow, fantastic news!!!! Congratulations!!!
  • Les Miserables to return to Broadway!  Feb 19 2013, 03:04:35 PM
    Also hoping for Alfie Boe AND Andrew Varela as Javert.
  • Let's Cast the 2014 Revival of Les Miz! Go!  Feb 19 2013, 03:03:34 PM
    Valjean -- Alfie Boe
    Javert -- Andrew Varela

    These are my top choices for those roles Not familiar enough with those on Broadway now to make a suggestion for the rest, but I do think Stephanie J. Block would be good as Fantine. Would love to see Samantha Barks gets a chance on Broadway.

    Finians Rainbow is my guess as well.
    "If the movie couldn't have been made without Jackman - which is fairly plausible - then they should have just lowered the key on "Bring Him Home," end of story. I'm a huge fan of his, but talent and hard work don't change a baritone into a tenor. Valjean carries a ton of recitative and relatively staid music while everyone else is getting showoff solos, so the fact that his showoff solo was out of Jackman's range was...not a good thing."

    I agree, Plum.

    In response to a prev
    For most of the film Hugh was fine. BRING HIM HOME was a disappointment to me; mostly because he was straining on the upper notes. Even Hugh said it was difficult in this interview with Michael Reidel. As for Russell Crowe, I was pleasantly surprised by his STARS. It was better than I expected.
  • Happy 25h Birthday, Phantom of the Opera!  Jan 27 2013, 06:28:01 AM
    "Then came the encores, same idea as the filmed version, Phantom into Music of the Noght. Sierra Bogess did the Christine part despite Sarah Brightman being there, the Phantom was split between Hugh Panaro, John Owen Jones, Peter Jobak, and Ramin Karimloo!! Great way to end a fantastic night and I'm glad I was able to get a ticket!"

    Was on twitter before I came here and was delighted to read John Owen Jones' tweet that he had been in NY for this event. Kind of glad to read Sierra Boges
