Mike Eldred, Chuck Wagner, Laura Matula, Rachel Potter and More Set for Studio Tenn's LES MISERABLES This Weekend
Studio Tenn's season finale production of the operatic epic "Les Miserables" will celebrate Claude-Michel Schönburg's stirring, masterful score: the core of this sweeping contemporary phenomenon.
Made into a major Hollywood motion picture in 2012, "Les Mis" is the theatre title currently on everyone's lips. In Studio Tenn's production, the music, foremost, will triumph-its full majesty aptly showcased amid the grandeur of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center's acoustically unparalleled Laura Turner Hall this weekend, May 3 and 4, 2014.
Featuring some of the finest vocal talent from Broadway and beyond, adorned with exquisite costuming and backed by a full symphony orchestra, this "Les Mis" bodes absolute magnificence: a revolutionary production in substance and splendor.
The cast features internationally renowned tenor, recording artist and performer Mike Eldred as "Jean Valjean," a role he played on Broadway. Chuck Wagner will play "Javert," also a role among his many Broadway credits. Studio Tenn's own Laura Matula is Fantine. Éponine will be played by recent Nashville transplant Rachel Potter, a top 12 contestant on the singing competition TV show "The X Factor" with a large Broadway resumé to boot. Seasoned Broadway actor Matthew Scott will play Marius and New York based actor and singer Gregory Maheu will be Enjolras. Managing Director Jake Speck -- a former member of the Broadway cast of "Jersey Boys" -- will play Thénardier, alongside company member Kim Bretton as Madame Thénardier and Belmont University Senior Sarah Caroline Billings will play Cosette.
They will be joined by a 20 member ensemble and a 146 voice choir.
