The first trailer for the anticipated Les Miserables movie has been released today. Anne Hathaway reveals her performance of I Dreamed a Dream as Fantine and we see glimpses of Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Javert, and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette.
I’ll be honest, I was sceptical of this when it was first announced, but the trailer has defiantly piqued my interest. Looking forward to seeing more about the film in the future.
Although I’m based in Birmingham, I originally hail from the South coast and so have a life long relationship with the fantastic Chichester Festival Theatre. In a few weeks I’ll be heading back down that way for a while and hope to catch the big musical from this summer’s season, Singin’ In The Rain. I’m also hoping to see Sweeney Todd there later in the Autumn with Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton – though whether it’ll be as good as The Crescent Theatre’s I’m not sure!
Here’s the trailer for Singin’ In The Rain as released by Chichester Festival Theatre. The rain and water is nothing new for the theatre which famously flooded it’s stage for the Venice themed season back in 2002!
