gorgeous sounds

Les Misèrables!” I found it on PBS. It was the 25th Anniversary edition and was it ever great! Did you get to see it? There are things that echo in your mind all through the years. This was simply amazing to see and hear on TV.

I have grown up since birth in theatre/musical theatre. My dad was known for his directing these type of shows on "live" stages. My last show I was in I played a Pick-a-Little Lady in MUSIC MAN in 2003. Before that, it had been 20 years since setting foot on a stage to act. I won numerous acting awards in high school and even was granted a monetary theatre scholarship in college. I had heard about Les Mis over the years but never saw the show till I accidently stumbled upon it last week Saturday on PBS of all places. It literally blew me away. It was so amazing and I literally had goose bumps on my arms. Wow. No other words can describe that feeling I got from seeing this masterpiece performed.
