english lyrics: Herbert Kretzmer.
“The women are especially strong, led by Sara-Jeanne Hosie’s heartbreaking Fantine (who has the especially difficult task, post-Susan Boyle, of singing “I Dreamed a Dream,” which she does magically).” -Vancouver Plays, Jerry Wasserman
“Sara-Jeanne Hosie takes on the double-edged role of Fantine, unenviable only in the inevitable comparisons between hers and YouTube sensation Susan Boyle’s rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream.” Thankfully, Hosie’s performance is all her own and makes Boyle’s a distant memory.” -Matthew, Vanmusicals
“Stand-outs amongst the leads here include Murphy and Hosie (Valjean and Fantine).” -Mark Robins, Gay Vancouver
“Sara-Jeanne Hosie first plucks at the heartstrings as Fantine.” -Peter Birnie, The Vancouver Sun
