I was so excited to discover a 25th Anniversary concert of Les Miserables (my all time favorite musical) came out on DVD last Tuesday! Must watch!
And it reminded me of Philip Quast who played Javert in the 10th Anniversary concert!
Les Miserables was the first professional stage musical I ever saw, and guess what? I saw it on a field trip in 1993 at the Fabulous Fox in of all places, St. Louis, Missouri. It was the first time I’d ever been to St. Louis, and isn’t it weird that I live here now? I remember it well and have seen Les Mis at least 4 times since then and would see it again and again.
Javert was my character that I connected with. I don’t know why. But I still tremble every time I hear him sing Stars. Don’t know if I’d put this song on the soundtrack of my life, but it definitely holds meaning…
