STAGE TUBE: New LES MIS Eponine Danielle Hope Sings 'On My Own'
This video from the BBC's OVER THE RAINBOW TV show gives a sneak peak of what to expect from Danielle Hope's performance as Eponine in London's West-End production of LES MISERABLES when she starts performances on June 18.
Best known for starring on Andrew Lloyd Webber's Over the Rainbow television series, the 19 year old Hope won the role of Dorothy in Webber's production of The Wizard of Oz and starred opposite Michael Crawford in the musical at the London Palladium.
Hope is the third actress with a background in Webber's reality TV shows to be chosen by producer Cameron Mackintosh to play Eponine. The others were Nancy Sullivan and Samantha Barks. Barks will reprise the role in the upcoming film version of Les Mis.
As well as celebrating its 25th Birthday in October 2010, the legendary musical “LES MISÉRABLES” made theatrical history with an international first - three different productions playing in London simultaneously. The Original Production at the Queen’s Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue, the acclaimed New 25th Anniversary Production at the Barbican (where the show originally premiered in 1985) and the celebratory concert at The O2.
