Decca Broadway to Release Les Miz Highlights

News   Decca Broadway to Release Les Miz Highlights On Jan. 28 Decca Broadway will release "Les Misérables—Highlights," a new CD featuring selections from the original Broadway cast recording of the famed, long-running musical.

The 17-track CD boasts such theatre favorites as Colm Wilkinson, who created the role of Valjean both in London's West End and on Broadway; Judy Kuhn, the three-time Tony nominee who was Broadway's first Cosette; Terrence Mann, who returns to the role of Javert Feb. 4; Frances Ruffelle, who won a Tony Award for her role as Eponine; and Broadway veteran Randy Graff, who portrays the ill-fated Fantine. Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's Les Misérables concerns the struggles of Jean Valjean and the self-righteous Inspector Javert.
