Tom Hooper directing 'Les Miserables' film Jun 17

I haven't posted here on BWW for a few years, but I feel so strongly about one casting choice I had to chime in: Michael Keaton as Thenardier! Ever since I saw Much Ado, that's been my personal dream film casting.
As for the rest, Hugh Jackman is perfect...for Javert, although I really can't think of any better/more likely Valjeans. And I'm holding out hope for a Colm cameo as the bishop!
Hairspray doesn't seem too far fetched, though. I might see it if that were the case.

Four of those shows were done exactly five years ago. Then again, that's kind of what they do - recycle the same four or five shows every four or five years. Damn you, Paul Blake!
And NGD, with very few exceptions, The Muny is local.
I guess I can - once again - hope against hope that the seventh show is Ragtime. *sigh*

^ Very true - I was looking for a copy for about four and a half years (after narrowly losing out on an eBay auction), then a few months ago, I found a copy at my campus' library!
The best one I ever saw on YouTube was the combo of Avenue Q and Fiddler on the Roof - Avenue Jew!
(or was that something else?)

Am I the only one who's been expecting an Avenue Q mention at somepoint? While all of the Tony-winning cameos so far have been great, other than Julie White, weren't they all favorites in their categories? (Not that I'm doubting Cubby's influence, mind you.)
Best line: "You got all that from a song? I thought it was about pirates or something!"
