I've done search after search trying to find pictures and cast lists of the ORIGINAL Los Angeles cast of Les Miserables but have no luck. Does anyone know where I could find this?

Do you want the complete cast list? I have the sovenir brochure (with pictures and bios) of the original Los Angeles cast.

I'd love to see this as well. Somewhere along the way, I have forgotten this *lol*

I'm confused. Was there ever a sit-down production of Les Mis in Los Angeles, ala the current Phantom and Wicked in Los Angeles?

Yes. Michelle Nicastro, who recorded four albums with Bruce Kimmel (including one with "On My Own"), originated Eponine.
