Ah yes. Les Misérables, my all-time favorite musical that I religiously followed through high school and college spending my pocket money on seeing the 3rd National Tour numerous times. At one point I could have quoted the entire musical to you. In fact, I was lucky enough to see many Broadway actors just before they found fame on Broadway and the West End including Sutton Foster as Eponine, Sierra Boggess in the ensemble, Benjamin Davis in the ensemble, Marissa McGowan in the ensemble, and Aymee Garcia as Mme. Thénardier.
Since I am going to take a wild guess and presume most anyone reading my blog has seen or heard or read Les Mis I will divert from my usual synopsis and share favorites:

Favorite LES MISERABLES Soundtracks
1. Complete Symphonic Recording. I know this recording does not have most of my favorite performers but after all the numerous cuts here and there including the gorgeous “Turning” it is a must-have in any fan’s collection.
2. Original London Recording. Again this is a must-have for a chance to hear the show before all those dreadful cuts. Highlights include “I Saw Him Once” (beautiful!!!!!!!) and the chance to hear Roger Allam (better known now as DI Thursday in Endeavour) as Javert.
