Creators of ‘Les Misérables’ Inspire as Artists-in-Residence

Written by Lorenzo Perez,

Many of the aspiring actors and singers in the University of Virginia’s departments of Drama and Music can trace the roots of their passion for musical theater back to the cast recordings of “Les Misérables” and “Miss Saigon” that they memorized growing up. Many of them maintain vivid memories from the stage productions of those award-winning musicals that they attended with their parents.
