Sep. 1st, 2007 @ 10:24 pm The New Dutch Cast
I thought I'd share the first "performance" of the new Dutch cast. It's at the Uitmarkt in Amsterdam, which is more or less a presentation of upcoming shows. The vid contains both I Dreamed A Dream and One Day more.

Javert is played by Wim van den Driessche (I figured I'd keep it on topic), a really amazing actor who is among my favourites. I think he'll make a fantastic Javert.

Anyway... enjoy!

Well, not all of them. Our Eponine (Céline Purcell) is off key... though I have to admit I've never seen anyone play that role without being off key. ;)

And I entirely agree about Wim. Spoke to him just yesterday at "Shhh... It Happens" (Which is great and anyone going to/in Holland before November should really go see it at Panama in Amsterdam. It's partly in English, so you'll be able to follow), it's really amazing how he's such a nice guy in person yet manages to play the 'meanest' roles. Though among the things I like about him is that those characters remain believable and you can actually tell something is driving them instead of them being just plain nasty.

Oh yeah, I'm the operator of his fanclub, in case you want to check it out. It's in Dutch, though and brand new so it doesn't include everything I want yet. ( http://www.clubs.nl/community/default.asp?clubid=378490 )

Yes, this is an important part of Dutch theatre. It's just in case there's an original production that sucks; there's always something fun to watch. ;) :p
