I would completely write this off if it wasn’t for Thomas’ involvement. I hope they call it ‘Les Miserables.’
Written by [actor/writer Graham] Norris, the contemporary take on Les Misérables is a primetime soap about a brilliant lawyer running a legal exoneration program who fights to evade the consequences of his own unjust conviction many years before. He must navigate high society, continue his mission of saving innocent people, and manage his tumultuous family and romantic life — all while staying one step ahead of a ruthless U.S. Attorney who refuses to let the ghosts of the past die.

Here is my newest video guys it’s honestly one of my favorites I’ve ever made for you. I really hope you find some honest, genuine emotion in it. Sharing this would mean the world to me if you enjoy it. Thanks for watching and supporting my music.
A new stage version of the blockbuster musical “Les Misérables” will open on Broadway in March 2014, the producer Cameron Mackintosh said on Tuesday, in an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the Oscar-nominated film and restore luster to the show in New York after a short-lived 2006 revival that even Mr. Mackintosh now admits was ill-conceived.
This latest “Les Misérables” will be missing a notable design element – a revolving turntable – that was used in the original Broadway production, which ran from 1987 to 2003, and the earlier revival, which closed in January 2008. The new version, which has been touring the United States for two years, also features redesigned scenery based on Victor Hugo’s paintings for his original novel, as well as new orchestrations that, as Mr. Mackintosh said, “get away from the crude electric-piano sound of the original.” And the staging is also different, with an emphasis on the gritty lot of the 19th century downtrodden in France; the directors are Laurence Connor and James Powell. (Trevor Nunn and John Caird won Tonys for their direction in 1987.)
Get at least some of the movie cast in there for a limited time and it will be all dollar signs.
With a scale as large as the musical source material and the novel that preceded it, paring ‘Les Miserables’ down to a two hour and forty minute movie was no easy task. Whether it’s the lengthy, sung soliloquies or the sweeping, multi-generational narrative that takes a literal and figurative lifetime to tell, fitting it all in may never have been an achievable goal. You couldn’t have it all could you? Tom Hooper does his best to and puts forward an effort that may be the best adaptation of the musical that could have been, but only at times does it truly soar.
