I've been listening to my Alfie Boe CDs today, and boy can that man sing! I'm not usually a fan of classical singers (although I am a fan of musical theatre), but Alfie's voice just makes me melt. So beautiful! I really must try to get to see him one of these days - either on the West End stage or in one of his own shows. To see him live as Jean Valjean in Les Mis really would be a dream come true. His performance on the 25th Anniversary DVD of Les Miserables is absolutely mesmerising. I didn't think anyone could be better than John Owen Jones (who I've seen in the role twice), but I think Alfie may very well have the edge.

And speaking of Les Mis, I am so excited about the movie version that's being released at the end of the year. Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean? Be still my beating heart! One of my favourite actors in one of my favourite musicals of all time? It really doesn't get any better than that! <3 <3

But who the heck thought it was a good idea to cast Taylor Swift as Eponine? AS EPONINE! Really?! I just can't see it working. I suppose time will tell if she's the right casting choice or not, but at the moment I have very strong reservations about it. I just hope it isn't a casting decision that will end up spoiling my over all enjoyment of the movie. :/

But still...

Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean!! :D

ETA: I really must learn to proof read before I post. Stupid iPad keeps changing Jean Valjean into Jean Val Jean! *g*
