Yes! Yes! Yes!

Thank you Theatre Gods!

It's just been announced by Cameron Mackintosh that Samantha Barks will be playing the role of Eponine in the upcoming film of Les Miserables. Ms. Barks played the same role at the West End and at the 25th Anniversary Concert (see above). I loved her performance! Taylor Swift (who we feel was totally wrong for the role) was previously announced as Eponine. Maybe the Theatre Gods heard the uproar of theatre geeks all over the world when Ms. Swift was announced. It's nice to see someone with real theatre chops and amazing voice get the role over someone with a recognized name. Read all about the exciting announcement here.
