Here is Alfie Boe as Valjean at the beginning of the Les Misérables concert. When Valjean gets his yellow ticket of leave from prison, he discovers being paroled does not free him.  He steals from the Bishop, but instead of sending him back to prison, the Bishop (Earl Carpenter) gives him his silver candlesticks as well, saying he must use the silver to become an honest man. Valjean rips up his yellow ticket and begins a new life.

    Looking forward to seeing Alfie Boe in Les Mis this summer..

    • I look forward to reading your impressions. Hopefully you’ll get a performance with Matt Lucas and Hadley Fraser as well. I know they stagger the understudies in performances. (Of course, the understudies are often future stars in the making.)
