In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after breaking parole, agrees to care for a factory worker's daughter. The decision changes their lives for ever.
Two New Yorkers are accused of murder in rural Alabama while on their way back to college, and one of their cousins--an inexperienced, loudmouth lawyer not accustomed to Southern rules and manners--comes in to defend them.
I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Tonys this year and I must say, even though I was in the second to last row of the highest balcony, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. To be able to be in the same room with some of the best musical/Broadway performers in the world was a dream come true.
Watching Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth belting "Defying Gravity" and Hugh Jackman making Sarah Jessica Parker dance... That was incredible.
I'm so happy for all of the winners (except for Best Musical) and everyone else who was up for an award. There's always next year.
