Les Mis!

My cast mates and I are four shows into an 8 show run of Les Miserables at the Bishop’s School.  What a great ride it has been! Everyone has contributed – cast, crew, directors – to make this an amazing musical theater experience for everyone involved and hopefully, the audiences too.  We’ve sold out every show and even got some very favorable press coverage –  I’m really proud to be part of this incredible journey.
