With dress rehearsal tonight, our final introduction is Ryan Wilson as Jean Valjean. For those unfamiliar with Les Miserables, the show follows the story of the convict Jean Valjean over a period of several decades as he attempts to escape the burdens of his 19 years of hard labour and make his peace with his own identity. The struggle with Les Miserables is to find an actor and singer capable of conveying one of the most demanding roles of all time - in Ryan, we have found one. I know many of you will know Ryan, either as Danny in Grease last year, from donning the lycra with the rest of the CATS over the Summer or singing his own music with his guitar,Let me promise you, you've never seen him like this. His journey as a performer has been an astounding thing to experience and I can't wait to finally get him on stage - he has put a phenomenal amount of work into his performance and it comes across every time he steps on stage. Working with him has been a privilege. He is also (as anyone who has interacted with Ryan in any way over the last few weeks will know) a little bit excited. Just a little bit. Ahem.
Theatre isn't all about the glamour. Sometimes it's about finishing painting the stage at 1.20am. Thanks team!
