7 comments on “Alfie Boe’s Les Mis First Night: The Review

  1. Ever since I first saw the O2 performance of Les Miserables on PBS, I told myself if I ever had a chance to see Alphie Boe in the role of Jean Valjean I would jump at the chance. Well I was so thrilled to hear he was coming to Broadway and booked my tickets immediately. Excitement grew as the day approached. I splurged for 4th row center for the evening performance on Sept 20th. Upon entering the theater I saw the announcement that the understudy will be playing the role that evening due to illness of the principal. To say I was disappointed does not do the emotion justice. Well the good news to all this is that as a Christmas gift from my son I am getting a second opportunity to see Alphie in the role before he leaves. I will be there on my birthday Feb 20th. I hope beyond hope that I finally get to fulfill the wish I made almost 5 years ago now and get to experience the reprise of that awesome and heart touching performance in person.

  2. Thanks, Jane! Yes, I was “absolutely delighted to be there”! Hoping to make it one more time before his run ends in Feb. Loved the review! Loved the show! Loved Alfie Boe! xx

    • We saw the show today. Watched the DVD of the 25th Anniversary about 30 times. The play was magnificent and Alfie was amazing. Bring him home was awesome. We stayed to meet Alfie at the stage door. I’m embarrassed but I have to admit I cried when we met him. I was just star struck. He was great and took pictures with everyone. Go Alfie Boe
