(Page 4 of 5)

Les Miz proved to be a massive hit, and to celebrate its 10th anniversary Mackintosh assembled a “dream cast” to perform the show’s music in concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall. London theater star Ruthie Henshall sang “I Dreamed a Dream.” “We all knew we were part of something very, very special,” says Henshall. “Everybody just stepped up to the plate. We all performed it like it was the last time it was ever going to be sung.¬†We all were so nervous. I remember walking to the mic and thinking to myself, ‘Come on darling, stop your legs from shaking.’ I was talking to myself as I walked up to the mic. And then as I started singing, I don’t remember anything else but just falling into the song. It will remain one of the most exciting nights of my career.”

Here’s Henshall singing “I Dreamed a Dream” at the 10th anniversary concert.
