LES MISERABLES IS CAST ENTIRELY INTERRACIALLY.
For possible future replacements in the currently running tour:
Jean Valjean: 35-40s. Sings to B (high lyric baritone or tenor with strong low notes). A poor peasant who rises to affluence, he has great natural nobility and dignity. A powerful figure, ideally a large man with a character of operatic size and passion. The voice needs to have a pop/rock sound or a classical sound of extraordinary textual clarity.
Javert: Baritone, sings to G. Policeman who relentlessly hunts Valjean. Ideally a large man. The ultimate “law and order” figure. Obsessed, to the point of irrationality, with a rigid and merciless moral code. He too is a character of operatic size and passion. Both belt voice and classical can suit this role but must have a darker quality than Jean Valjean.
Thenardier: Late 30s-40s. Strong comic character role. A crooked innkeeper, later a petty, amoral thief. Greedy, irreverent, selfish, boorish, vulgar. Baritone, sings to F sharp.
Marius: 20s. High baritone (sings to A) with a strong bottom (to A). A member of the revolutionary student movement. Attractive and romantic but in a sensitive, 19th century “byronic” way.
Enjolras: 20s-early 30s. High baritone (to G sharp/A) very strong singer. Charismatic political figure. Leader of the revolutionary movement.
Fantine: Late 20s, early 30s. Belt up to C, sings to E flat. Poor factory girl, struggling to support her fatherless daughter. Later is a pauper, a prostitute, a consumptive and a ghost. Earthy and poignant. Although is finally defeated by circumstances she should appear to be strong and a survivor. She puts up a valiant fight against the horrors of her life.
Cosette: 18-25 (the younger the better). Fantine’s daughter (first seen as and played by a child) delicate, elegant, vulnerable and beautiful. Falls in love with and later marries Marius. Soprano (to high C) but a light, young “floating” sound, without heavy vibrato.
Eponine: An enormous and beautiful belt voice, to C in belt (sings to E flat). Daughter of the Thenardiers but in no way behaves like them. Fired by an unrequited love for Marius. Small, gamine, waif-like. Hasn’t learned to disguise her emotions; wears her heart on her sleeve.
Madame Thenardier: 30s-early 40s. Tough, sharp, coarse, boorish, vulgar. Strong character comedienne role. Belter.
Gavroche: Boy, age 7 - 11. 52” tall or less.
Spunky street urchin. Lots of
personality. Sings very well.
Young Cosette and Young Eponine: Girls, age 7 - 11. 50” tall or less. Sweet innocent waifs. Pretty soprano voice.

Manager Sports Information & Statistics - ESPN
Manager Sports Information & Statistics at ESPN – a job unlike any other … and we need a person with a skill set unlike any other.
Do you have a passion for sports? Not just following along as a fan, but studying and understanding the statistical nuances of the game and the scorekeeping rules. And not just for your favorite sports, events, leagues and players – but for compelling subjects across multiple sports and countries. We’re looking for an expert in “content,” someone who can understand and support story lines for media across all platforms.
Have you noticed the “Next Level” content on ESPN and ESPN.com, or read our Stats & Information blogs on ESPN.com? Are you the kind of fan who has filled notebooks with stats or wondered if there were databases where you can search and sort for the data that enriches your fan experience? Do you search for patterns, trends and insights in data – in an effort to either quantify performance or predict future outcomes for players and teams? “Stat Geek” is not a derogatory term in our world … it’s high praise, and an apt description for the kind of team members you would be supervising and guiding.
Do you find yourself surfing the web, seeking out data sets or discussion groups who are brainstorming around the latest techniques or ideas in the area of advanced analytics? Do you know the names Bill James, Dean Oliver or John Hollinger?
Does the idea of working on the cutting edge of technology excite you? Is finding a solution part of your game, whether it’s solving puzzles or managing urgent situations? Are you someone who has to investigate everything and ask why and how about all aspects of work flow, structure and process?

Take a lead role in improving processes for accurate data intake and work with the Technology department as new software is developed to accomplish those tasks. Analyze and refine standards for proper technique and ensure newsroom staff is fully trained and up to date. Make decisions on a nightly basis as the news operation monitors feeds, identify when there are issues with feeds and step in to manually build feeds when necessary. Ensure the accuracy of content in a real-time basis. Orchestrate and plan newsroom coverage of individual sports by collaborating with stakeholders from across the company, including Studio Production, Digital Media and International Production.
