Broadway Buzz: Dream the Dream on Christmas Day

Cameron Mackintosh has a present for theater fans everywhere on December 25. 

It's opening day of the new "Les Misérables" film starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried and a host of other talented Broadway-loving actors. 

Based on a 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, Les Misérables has stood the test of time. It first opened in London's West End in 1985 and on Broadway two years later. Since then, it has toured the world for more than 60 million people in 42 countries to see, including a tour stop at the Fox Cities P.A.C. just last year.

Still Les Misérables isn't the only project keeping Mackintosh busy these days. According to, a film version of Miss Saigon may not be far behind.

Thanks Cameron Mackintosh! You knew just what to get us this year.
