Just curious, anyone know what J. Leyton or Phil cavill or Peter Karrie or any of their covers from over the years are now. There are not so many roles that can show off their voices as well as we would like, so I was just wondering...where are they?

I know this is a bit off-point, but Peter Corry, former Javert, is currently doing concerts in Ireland singing various songs from shows. There were two in Dublin, and one of my family was at each. the first was, aparently, rubbish, but the second was brilliant and got a standing ovation.

Did you guys mean Peter Corry when you said Peter Karrie?
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

Peter Karrie was Valjean a while back.....waaaaay before you were born :) He was good, and it good to know he is still singing. I know of the Peter you speak, saw him as Javert once. But actually just looking for info on the Valjeans over the years. Again, there are not sooo many roles that can really show off ones "Valjean" voice, that has a singer who can show off the range required for that role. I would think that after playing Valjean (or the Phantom maybe or Che I suppose or George in Sunday in the Park) there are not SOOOOO many vocally juicy roles. So, I was just curious about where some of these guys have gone after playing the parts they have. Craig Pinder can be added to the list of the London Valjeans who I wonder about.

I think Jeff Leyton would make a great Phantom!

Jeff would love that comment about Phantom!!

Since leaving LM, Jeff has done a couple of concerts with Peter Corry (former Javert) but I believe has now gone into at least semi-retirement.

Phil Cavill recently came back as Valjean whilst JOJ was off at the RAH. He's one of my favourite Valjeans.

re Peter Corry . . . he is also doing concerts in Scotland and the UK in the next couple of months, sorry I haven't got the actual dates to hand.

Various things. Hopefully we'll get to see him perform again soon.
