Tomorrow night, I will go to Theatre Baton Rouge's production of Les Miserables.
To say I am excited would be an understatement.
This cast... from the lead roles to the ensemble roles, EVERY SINGLE PERSON either has performed a lead or could take on a lead role in any musical without a problem. They are all INCREDIBLY talented. They are all beyond good. I am THRILLED to be able to see this show.
We are the FIRST community theater in Louisiana to get to put on Les Miserables. Community theaters just recently received the rights to put on this production, and TBR jumped on it! (We were also the FIRST (anywhere!) community theater to put on The Producers in 2008! Which i co-stage managed. And yes, I'm bragging. I am so proud of our theater!)
Anyway. I am going twice. Brad & I usually go to pay-what-you-can night (which is always the night before opening night), because we are poor. :) But this time we decided to go TWICE. They double-casted the roles of valJean & Javert. And i want to see both actors in each role. Brad decided he is okay with seeing it once. So tomorrow night I will go with my mom & am excited that my pastor, his wife, and another couple from church are also going!!
And then later in the run, probably mid-July, Brad & i will go!
CANNOT WAIT! :)
