LES MISERABLES



I got to go out to a big girl show this weekend (not that kind, silly) with my mom! We went to see Les Miserables at the Phoenix Theatre. I've never been to this play before, and boy, was it awesome! We laughed, we cried, we were thoroughly entertained for 3+ hours! My mom's cousin, Dr. Andria Fennig, is a professional concert pianist who plays all around the world, and she was playing in this production. She was able to get us fantastic seats! My mom had just seen Les Miserables in New York, and she said she much preferred this performance, because the Phoenix Theatre is so much smaller and more intimate, and the acoustics were amazing! Off to grade some papers now--Western Expansion, not the French Revolution...and then on to MY castle on a cloud!


Not sure where this play took place, but definitely in a much larger theatre!

Just found your blog and didnt want to elave without telling you that I am a great Les Mis fan and have seen it from Toronto to Munich and London. read the book, have several CD's and the song best loved: "The confrontation" - the two male voices, the aaskign one, the denying one, good and bad, it is incredible.
Thanks for highlighting my day. Paula
