Unexpectedly found Norm Lewis playing Javert in Les Mis this evening.

Fantastic performer with cracking voice worth checking out.

Lucky you! I saw him in the Broadway revival and really enjoyed his portrayal. And loved his voice.

No idea how long the run is. There was a glossy insert rather than change to the programme. Imagine he is here for a six month run on Equity exchange though?

Vocals were terrific. Really got his teeth into it (and enjoyed him taking the final part of suicide up the octave)

I believe he is in it for a couple of weeks similar to the Jonas boy, just to prep him for the concert..... I heard they were doing it with all the concert cast!!!

This makes me interested in a return visit...

Just curious as to how the Jonas fans have been behaving during the show - I saw hordes of them o/s the Queens stage door recently, squealing whenever a people carrier approached.

Does anyone have confirmed dates for Norm Lewis?
Seen some shows in my time....

The audience was very well behaved and apart from louder cheers for each Marius song it was no worse/better than normal.

Although I did notice an applause for Javert's Solioquy which not heard for years.

I saw Norman on Broadway in both Sondheim and Sondheim and Les Miserable and he was excellent.

Playbill article suggesting he is only doing one performance, maybe wrong.

I think he's doing it for a while as on the official les mis website, he's under "Javert" with no dates specifying performances, like Jonas and the Cosette has.

Just to say Jonas has extended for an extra two weeks.

Hi everyone!
I saw Norm at Sister Act last week, and he told me he was going on as Javert until the concert. He was such a nice and kind guy, and he seemed genuinely interested to meet one of his fans. Was a thrilling experience!

Phantom of London - playbill doesn't suggest he is only doing one performance...?

I would also like to add that I saw him play Javert in NYC and LOVED him.

I've seen Norm Lewis in Sondheim On Sondheim and The Little Mermaid and have numerous recordings of him ("Side Show", William Finn's "Infinite Joy", "A New Brain", etc.). His vocals are awesome. It's a real bonus for anyone who gets to see him in Les Mis. Wish I could get to London while he's there.
