Love to see it. Great story. Saw the stage production in London a couple of years ago.

I haven't seen it yet but several of my friends have and it's getting fairly good reviews. Of course most of friends have commented on the weakness of the singing in some parts (these are fellow singers and choral directors who have seen stage performances more than once) and one thought Russel Crowe was awful as Javert (she admitted she dislikes the actor so that may have affected her critique) but it was still compelling. Tissues required for viewing.

That sounds kind of depressing. I think I'll go see "Wreck-It Ralph", lol.
