    I haven’t seen “Les Miserables” myself, but it is on my list of theaters I wan’t to see. The same to Phantom at the Opera.

  2. Ricky Strongbow from Shredding says:

    I love Les Miserables. I have seen two broadway shows of it and everytime they show the movie or broadway on tv, I stop what I am doing and watch. It is a tremendously great story of redemption and struggle over legalism. Powerful message.
