i love lea salonga. she has proven to age appropriately well, starting as annie when she was a kid and debuting on the world’s stage as kim in miss saigon when she was 17. then she tackled unrequited love embodied as eponine in the 10th anniversary concert of les miserables, where she drew raves and was often regaled as the best eponine ever.
eventually she got invited to perform as fantine on broadway when she matured and was also featured in the 25th anniversary concert.
and i guess it would be really (extremely) funny if she got called back on the 40th anniversary to sing as madame thernadier
i do hope not! haha
