November 19, 2010 - August 11, 2013

A year ago today, the US Tour of Les Miserables played its final show at the Smith Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ushering in a new generation of fans and introducing the revised staging to North America for the first time, the beloved tour featured many of the show’s exciting new developments while showcasing some of the finest talents Les Miserables has ever seen. 

Needless to say, the tour meant a lot to myself and many other fans. On this anniversary of its closing, I’d like to share a number of audios of the show as a means of celebrating its much too short run. 

If any of the below audios are yours and you would like the links deactivated or credited to you, all you need to do is inbox me!

There are accepted revolutions, revolutions which are called revolutions; there are refused revolutions, which are called riots.

Les Misérables Barricade Photoshoot: ‘Old Colourized Photo’ Set.

So I had really wanted to do a concept with photos based on Nicephore Niepce’s old portraits, but “coloured in” the way that people do with old photos these days. Since we all see book characters differently, I thought it would be more fun with only half the faces visible!

Thanks to my awesome group for letting me do this bizarre photo set. :)
