I love the Dream Cast.
Hi guys, I had seen the 10th anniversary and bits of the 25th anniversary on Youtube. So here is my thoughts on both show!
10th Anniversary Concert
When I first borrowed the DVD from a friend, my first impression was that it was a spectacular moment that you really want to watch it live!
The cast were amazing, and I was also surprise that Frances Ruffelle was never ask to reprise her role as Eponine, despite the fact that Lea Salonga was also very good!
Surprisingly, Madame Thenadier's part in Castle on a Cloud was shortened. So was Turning, I have always wonder why though?
Finally, I love how all of the international Valjean from every international production all came out to perform Do You Hear the People Sing in their native language, ending with One Day More with the dream cast.
25th Anniversary Concert
While the cast are amazing, I wasn't very happy with Nick Jonas as Marius. He was not very convincing for the role, especially his voice. I bet many of his fans will kill me!
He sounds like he is struggling whenever he is singing! Comparing him to other actors who play Marius, especially Michael Ball. I have to say that they sound even better than Nick Jonas.
Lea Salonga and Jenny Galloway are the only Dream Cast to be in this version, the former played Fantine while the latter reprises her role as Madame Thenadier.
Castle on a Cloud
Spoiler alerts, if you haven't seen both, go ahead and watch it before seeing it!
Love it except Nick Jonas.
