Adam Jacobs and Ali Ewoldt, who played Marius and Cosette in the Broadway revival of Les Miserables, reunited for A Heart Full of Love: A Concert Feb. 23 at The Town Hall in Manhattan. Ewoldt shares some photos and remembrances from the night
"Adam and I had an amazing time at our Town Hall concert," said Ewoldt. "We are so grateful to all of the people who made the evening a success, including our creative team, Adam Fitzgerald, David Dabbon and Victor Lirio, our special guests Derek Gregor (Carner & Gregor), Rona Figueroa and Broadway Barkada and all of our friends and family and fans who came out to support us!"
