I enjoyed Russell, it worked in the film genre. But can you imagine Philip Quast? He can act as well as sing THE definitive Javert.
Not that Russell put me off. The more I hear the soundtrack etc, the more I'm not comparing it to the stage or Anniversary performances.
Although an afternoon listening to Nick Jonas and even Homer Simpson would sound great as Marius.
I'd never seen Eddie Redmayne before
, but I loved him as I did Enjolras
Off again for a crying fest tomorrow!
