I had never seen Les Miserables the play before seeing the movie. After the first few minutes I almost walked out (mostly due to Russell Crowe’s singing).
After the movie, I figured I just didn’t get it. I thought I just wasn’t cut out to be a classy “of the arts” person.
Tonight, I rewound the performance and admit, I am a fan. It took a while, but the amazing cast won me over.
p.s. I am still not, nor will I ever be, classy. That’s a lost cause.
p.p.s. Did anyone see Aaron Tveit strut on that stage like he owned it? I hope to do that to the bar this week.
