I was thrilled beyond belief to find it on TV and was very surprised to see Nick Jonas singing the role of Marius. It was shock, but a good one. The kid actually did very well.
Unfortunately, by the time I tuned in there was about 15 minutes left of the show. Fortunately, they were airing it again at 12:30, which unfortunately meant that I lost lots of sleep. But oh was it worth it. I sang my little heart out and boohooed and just loved every minute of this musical masterpiece.
Since I am going a "Musical Monday" post, I decided to share some songs from the concert:
In My Life / A Heart Full of Love (how's about that Nick Jonas - I'm impressed):
Bring Him Home:
Little side note - Watching the concert on TV led to me researching if show online, which led me to find out that Les Miserables is coming to Kennedy Center and Alfie Bow (the above singer) is playing the role of Val Jean. I am still recouping from finding this out. Of all the times to be a little cash poor. I want to see that show so bad!!!
On My Own - my all time favorite song from a musical:
Another side note - the role of Eponine has always been my dream role. I realize that I may now be too old for it. I guess that I will just have to settle for Fantine :-)
I hope you have enjoyed this share of videos. Anyone else love Les Miserables as much as me?
