Valjean - Drew Sarich. Though if I could have any cast I wanted for one night only, I might be tempted to say Chris Jacobsen to see if he could make me cry.
Javert - Quast. Anything to see him play it live. Thing is, I feel like Sarich would be better against a Javert like Tam Mutu, so it's another reason for possibly saying Jacobsen as Valjean, but Quast is the one above all others that would make a cast a dream cast.
Fantine - Ruthie Henshall. I was seriously reevaluating her place in my affections earlier this year, because I adore Jo Ampil so much, but then I saw Ruthie do IDAD live and I don't think anyone can do it better.
Marius - Niklas Andersson is my favourite certainly. And most of my other favourites are on video somewhere and he had such fantastic chemistry with.....
Éponine - Joanna Ampil. She doesn't look too old for it, even if she left the role 12 years ago. I want her back dammit!
Cosette - Philippa Healey. I'm just going into my favourites now amn't I? Though I would love to see Rebecca Caine do it too, but I think I'll say Philippa since I don't have anything more than audio to remember her by and I did really like her.
Thenardiers - Alun Armstrong for definites, but I'm tempted to say Sue Jane Tanner instead of Jenny Galloway, just because I've seen 3 videos of Jenny even though she's my favourite.
Enjolras - Jason McCann. Eh, you know how I feel about him. Also in the ensemble track where he gets to bang his gavel in Who Am I?
Grantaire - Adam Linstead. Yep.
Bishop and Combeferre - Paul Monaghan. Because anyone else is just weird to me as the Bishop. And it's always his voice I think of singing Ferre's bit in DYHTPS.
Courfeyrac - I'm tempted to say Chris Jacobsen so he can understudy Valjean and Enjolras. It is a *cast* after all
. Also as the Factory Worker who is clearly just waiting to clock off.
Feuilly - Kieran Brown. He's still adorable like he was back when he played Feuilly and he sang it so well. Even though in my head, I always mentally recast him as....
Prouvaire - Ian Patrick Gibb. The most Jehan-ish Prouvaire that they've ever cast. And he can also be cover Marius.
Joly - Jason Forbach (and cover Feuilly). But still the one who hooks up with a chick in Master of the House from his Enjolras track.
Laigle - Joe Spieldenner (and cover Grantaire and Javert). But still the blind guy in Master of the House with the Lennon glasses.
Foreman - Hmm, Michael McCarthy is in my head for his epic moustache, though I do already have Spieldenner as a cover Javert. Not sure about this, but I might throw David Bardsley in for the sheer hell of it because I'd like to actually see what he did with it.
Bamatabois - Cameron Blakely
Pimp - Peter Polycarpou. Because he should be in there somewhere. Maybe cover Thenardier as well.
Montparnasse - Andy Coxon
Brujon - Going by recent discussion I'm tempted to leave this as a mystery!
Eh, I'll throw Niall Sheehy in because I want to put him in somewhere.
Babet - James Smoker. He was precious and I was sad I didn't see him more than once. Parnasse is taken, but I'm sure he'd be a good Babet too. He can cover the Bishop too I suppose if I don't use Linstead for that. But more importantly, they can just give him the twitter account for weeks on end.
Claquesous - My thoughts just went "Who would it not be a dream cast without?" and my brain went to Matt Cammelle. This is now the most hilarious thing in the history of the world to me, so I am putting it down just for giggles.
Female ensemble - Elinor Collett (Factory girl and cover Fantine), Nancy Sullivan, Laura Michelle Kelly (cover Éponine), Annalene Beechey (cover Cosette), Katie Hall. Not sure who to put in the ensemble as cover Mme T, maybe someone like Claire Moore.
I never really keep that much of a close eye on the kids to care, but the Gavroches were a lot better around the 1999 UK Tour and in London in the few years after that, so as long as they don't try to make him cute and they do give him some attitude, I'll be fine.
