My mum, dad and I are going on 12th Jan. We're all huge fans, I cannot wait. I've listened to Anne's full version of IDAD and think it's amazing. I love the emotion and intimacy in it, and you can really feel Fantine's pain.
We watched the special on ITV, and my mum commented that "Could they not have got someone better looking to play Marius?" Whilst he's not my cup of tea, poor Eddie
Those opening scenes with the boat look amazing though.
Apparently its all singing for 2 and a half hours, rather than dialogue thrown in for good measure like Sweeney Todd, may give this a miss and wait for DVD.
It's a musical...
