I love, love, loved the stage production of Les Mis on Broadway, and with Hugh Jackman as ex-prisoner Jean Valjean you can be sure that this broad will be sitting front and center on opening night. With a cast that includes not only Jackman, but also Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried it’s got to be a blockbuster.
…and just for us mothers – here’s a little message from Hugh himself.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
