So, guess what, y'all?!
Apparently, I'd been looking on, like, the London cast for Les Miserables - that's when I thought we had Hadley Fraser for our Javert. Today, I clicked over to the US Tour cast to see how to spell Enjolras for a comment on a blog...
And guess what I found out?!
While we don't have Hadley Fraser as Javert (major bummer right there), our Javert is Andrew Varela! He played the auctioneer in the first (and, thus far, only) production of Phantom of the Opera my sister and I saw. However, since it was a matinee, the Phantom wasn't the Phantom - I guess he was taking a break or something. (We were supposed to have Tim Martin-Gleeson. Wouldn't that have been amazing?!) So Andrew Varela played our Phantom. And he was AMAZING! I've been wanting to see him in something again and now I have the chance!
So, while we don't have Hadley Fraser, I'm as happy as I was before because we have Andrew Varela now. Funny how that works....
And.... it's only two more days. : ) I'm so excited, I'll bust!
On a completely different note....
My sisters were watching the 1986 version of Mansfield Park today and said that Anthony Dewhurst (Tony, my personal favorite League guy) was Tom Bertram. They rewound it (cuz it was one of those old-fashioned VHS things... that we still own... odd, that!) and I almost screamed. Well, I actually did scream. "Oh, my WORD! It's TONY!" Then he said something and I screamed again. : )
That's when you know you're a TSP fan. Oh, and when Sir Percy comes up in your morning family devotions as an example for dependability (as opposed to inconsistency).... Yup, happened just today. : )
