Get Ready

Les Miserables is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful stories of life, justice, and redemption. Filled with real pain, struggle and heartache, yet also with love, sacrifice and a tiny bit of joy. It does not gloss over the hard things, nor slap a happy ending on to make everything pretty. It is a story that speaks to the deep places of the heart that are broken and left without hope, and tells of the resilience of humans living in a very messed up world. It shows our search for redemption, and our inability to create it for ourselves. There is so much in one story, yet woven together beautifully.

I have seen Les Mis on stage twice now, and have also watched the film version with Liam Neeson multiple times. This winter they are releasing a new film version that includes all of the musical numbers. At first I was a bit skeptical, but then I saw this:
