The hit musical Les Misérables will return to Broadway March 1. Playbill.com is getting ready to storm the barricades with some of our favorite performances from the musical.



Originated onstage by Frances Ruffelle, the role of Eponine will be played by Tony Award winner Nikki M. James in the upcoming revival.

We are taking a look at the many actresses who have performed Eponine's signature song, "On My Own."

The iconic ballad, performed by the character of Eponine in Les Miz, features music by Claude-Michel Schonberg and original French lyrics by Alain Boublil. The song was later translated into English by Herbert Kretzmer, and features orchestrations by John Cameron.
