What an amazing performance! I was trepidatious b/c Les Mis is my favourite musical and I didn't want to be disappointed. No worries b/c London theatre does not disappoint. John Owen-Jones played Jean Valjean. He's the longest running actor to perform as the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera (1400 performances) and is the youngest to play Valjean so I was a little skeptical - especially b/c Colm Wilkinson was the star of that role as far as I was concerned but Owen-Jones is very very comparable to Wilkinson - a true treat. AND John really really really enjoyed it. It was a great night - had dins at an Italian/French bistro (don't ask! what can I say but it was eclectic - foie gras and boccocini)!!
London was hopping last night at midnight! LOVE big cities for that.
Anyway, gotta run. Gordon and Anne-Lynn are picking us up in seconds.
Miss you all!!!
