This week Hidden Staircase is going to Broadway! (Ok, not literally to Broadway.) I love Les Misérables. I try to see it whenever it comes to town, and for me, that is THIS WEEK. Yay! My boys are excited to see their first “official” Broadway touring show downtown. We’ve been listening to Les Mis to prep for the big night.
I have tried (and failed) to read Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables several times. But I adore the musical; before Hamilton came along, Les Mis was always my #1. When people ask me what soundtrack to listen to, I always recommend Les Misérables: The Complete Symphonic Recording. This three-disc set blended an all-star cast from around the world, and has every single note from the show.
Here are a few of my favorites tunes. I went with the 10th Anniversary recordings for our post today.
Favorite Song: ABC Cafe/Red and Black
Hands down, Red and Black is my favorite song in the show.
Favorite Soliloquy: On My Own
Favorite Medley: One Day More!
I love how all the characters come together to sing their hopes for what will come in One Day More!
Bonus: Les Mis, Carpool Karaoke Style.

Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately. It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others. If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).
