Hi there! All postings are either my brain spoutings or other things I've found interesting, or compelling to beg reposting here. Enjoy your visit!
Yessss...congratulations!And your new peechur...wow (bows in hanga)! Such a beautiful shot.Is that a preview of the Fantine look? Is that the official production picture from Tara Rubin? Manang, as we speak, the tiks are selling fast. I'm happy that you will be there up to the summer season. Would it be Nic's first time in NYC? Anyway, congratulations, welcome back, break a leg and see you there.
hi lea thats a beautiful pictue..
Wow nice.At ang ganda ng feeeekture.
Congratulations and can't wait to see it!
It's a very mature and sophisticated picture...I like it. Are Rob and Nic going to be with you here in NYC?
Break a leg, Lea! Love your new pic!
Oh my!!! i just visited the forum at broadway world and its really buzzzing! Lea after meeting you in NY during flower drum song... i'll be flying to NY from Toronto again!
Ms. Lea, congratulations po! This is a dream come true. Since I was 4 I always wanted to see you live on Broadway. I even lost 4 sets of cassettes of "Miss Saigon" and 1 CD. When "Saigon" was in Manila I was not able to see you, I saw Czerah. I am not going to let this opportunity pass since I am now living in Philly. I am so excited to see you as Fantine. I am so excited. Ms. Lea, congratulations again. Wishing all the happiness and blessings for you, your family and your career! See you at stage door! GOD BLESS! -Chino- P.S. Do you want anything from Philly? A Cheese steak perhaps? :-)
Hi Lea...I'll definitely will want to visit NYC and watch you perform! Congratulations :)
Congratulations, Lea! We are soooo happy for you....will be missing you tons. (sob, sob!) Hope to catch you in Les Miz in April. Welcome back!
Very cool!! Congratulations...hope to see you, Rob and Nicole! Emil sends his regards.

(Hey, nice pic ;p )Break a leg, Lea! Another something to make your kababayans proud. Are you excited to sing new songs from an old musical?
Hi Lea, I bought tickets on-line as soon as I found out you are playing the other dead girl (LOL) in Les Miz. I was lucky enough to get 6th row center orchestra for Friday, May 25th so please, please, please, please, please stay healthy and perform that night. Jim (my partner) and I are driving all the way from Washington, DC just to see you. We have become official Lea Salonga groupies having seen all of your east coast gigs (Broadway, Atlantic City, Lenape Performing Arts, Warner Theater, and of course, Carnegie Hall - we were there front row center and boy, oh boy, what a show!!!), We are looking forward to seeing you again at the Broadhurst Theater stage door after the performance. Good luck...ay, break a leg pala!

Thanks, you guys!
Congrats Lea, Break a leg. Hoping to hear some of Fantine's songs on your feb concert here in Manila :)
Congratulations, indeed! I think it's really great to be in Les Miz twice, and playing a different character. I wonder what's next after Fantine! :) Anyway, I hope our family plans for NY this summer will push through, and I'll finally get to see you on broadway!!! :) Cheers!
Congratulations! :o) I am bouncing on my chair as we speak..er, type. All the more reason to convince my dad to take me to New York as a grad gift. ;o) That picture is lovely!
Congrats Lea!!! This is great. Hoping to catch the show this spring. Are there days when you won't be performing? Any matinees? Can you share with us how you were approached? The message boards are going crazy!!!! Here's wishing you the best in 2007, and here's hoping maybe for another set of concerts in the West coast too.
Hi Lea! I finally joined multiply just to be able to chat with you. I am soooo thrilled that you'll be back in the US to perform on Broadway - again! Yayyyy! See you in April!
Woohoo!! Congrats, Manang Lea!! Will most definitely come and see you on Les Miz (perhaps several times) as I've been waiting for so long to see you perform live again. Also, love the new photo. 2007 will be a great year for you. All the best!!
LEA! ANO BA 'YAN NAGKASALISI PA TAYO? I would've loved to see you in Les Mis. I won't be back there 'til next December but I'll try to coerce mum to fly me to New York this summer! Take care sis :D
Lea, will you be doing promotional gig for this in NY? I really wish you can release your carneige concert as an album!!!!! That would be a good Les Miz follow up, a US album release.
Hi Lea, I'm a huge fan from NJ, as soon as I heard about your return to Broadway in March. I purchased 2 tckts on May 25 (Friday) performance. I do hope you are performing that day. I can't wait...the excitement is so thick with your broadway fans. Break a leg!
You deserve everything that you have right now. Your performance on stage just reflects your extreme passion towards your work. Just continue to inspire us. I need a miracle for me to get there in new york and watch you perform.I just wish they have something like that here in Manila, coz i never had the chance to see you perform before. Just recently, I started to be a fan of yours/You were so great when I heard you sing "I dont know how to love him". Haaaayy...

Hi ms. lea... first of all congratulations I just heard about it on the news kahapon... Like everyone is saying "break a leg!" Have fun doing Les Miz again... I hope I can watch but I can't...

I can't wait to see you play Fantine on Broadway. Another reason to see the show over and over again. Jo Ampil will also play the role in London. Galing no, 2 pinays in both Broadway and West End. Tapos me 2 pang half-Filipinos sa New York company. : )
lea, super tatlong pinoy na kayo sa Les Mis! si Adam and Ali at ikaw. Can't wait to see you guys in march!
Wow, Leah Congrats! I went to see your Show Miss Saigon in Manila and you were awesome! I had my mom buy front row tickets too! Your daughter is adorable... she's about the same age as mine only a couple months younger.
Ms. Lea your new picture is Simply Beautiful!
I have already said congrats to Lea. Moonfall, I think you were lucky to see Lea play Eponine live, that must have been wonderful. What do you remember about Lea in the scenes "Look Down/the Robbery" and "Eponine's Errand?" She didn't get to do those scenes at the Tenth Anniversary Concert.
hi leah that's awesome will definitely see you on broadwayy. new york city misses you :-) cheers
Hi, Lea! Congratulations! I'm sure it will be another superb performance. The people here are lucky to see you on broadway. I can't but I already have a ticket for your Davao concert on the 17th of February. For now, that's more than good enough :)I love your new pic. So sexy. :)
Lea, no Chicago run?
Congratulations Lea!!! you're making us proud again. Break a leg, like the usual...take care...and GOD Bless!!!
Hi Lea,Congratulations. I wish Les Miz is playing here in LA, so we could see you. Gorgeous pic by the way. Take care and God bless always...Lien
hi lea! i'm so glad you'll be playing the role of fantine. as soon as i told people in our office, we were already making a list of people who wanted to watch it. so far, there's already 20 of us. i read that you'll be playing the role starting march 6th so we're actually getting tickets for that show 'coz we want to be sure that you'll be there. are you really performing that night?
Congrats Lea! I wish I can see your play!
Congratulations! =) Stunning picture by the way =)
Now Im just dying to go to New York. Congratulations, Lea! Break a leg. :)
Congratulations! I'm sure you'll do all Filipinos proud, like you always do :) Enjoy, and... hey, if you're gonna be playing Fantine until summer, -maybe- I can sneak off to NYC and watch over my summer hiatus. :)
FANTINE?! Whoa!! Break a Leg, Idol! See you on Valentine's Day here in Cebu! ^___^

congrats again,our idol! my family will definitely watch you in davao this feb. i wish i can go back to new york around that time...
Congratulations!! I've been a Les Miserables fan since I was 6 years old, and you were always my favorite Eponine. I used to have the 10th anniversary video, but it got old and don't play anymore, and I can't find a new copy :( So I have to settle with just listening on a CD, but as long as I get to hear your beautiful voice it's all good ;) Good luck on playing Fantine, I'm sure you'll nail it! ~Love from Hedvig, Norway
omigod, i have been praying for this!!! no matter what, i should go to NYC to watch you.....please keep us posted....
I already have tickets for the March 6th and 17th performances! :) Can't wait to see you!
gwapa kaayo si Lea.. hehehe. Lea idol!!! hehehe
CONGRATULATIONS!!! WOW!!! =oD i immediately spreaded the news to all of my theatre-lover friends and they were like, WOW! (same reaction as everyone ;o)) i'll be moving in New York soon to pursue my Broadway dreams and i hope you'd still be there when i move... or if not.. oh well :)by the way, please read the mail I sent you :) it really means alot to moi:)p.s. i just met Daphne Rubin-Vega last spring on the Rent 10th anniversary and i loved her immediately and i also love the fact that you're replacing her as Fantine =o) not that she's bad at it. haha!! it just feels all connected... and stuff.. haha ;) ok that was lame, i'll stop ;-)take care and God Bless!!! <3 <3 <3
ate Lea, so sassy with your gorgeous shot! Hubby & I were going to go on road tripping out in the Western states (4corners) from Hawaii, but definitely change of plans and off we fly to the East coast! woohoo! By the way, any plans to perform back in the Aloha state?
Thank God He gave you to all of us miss Lea... you are such a wonderful wonderful talented person and you have made us all Filipinos proud... good luck to you and God bless you!
7 reasons not to mess with children. A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah". The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?" The little girl replied, "Then you ask him". A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like." Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, "They will in a minute." A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "honour" thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?" Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, "Thou shall not kill." One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white." The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Mommy, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?" The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. "Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael, He's a doctor.' A small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the teacher, she's dead." A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face." "Yes," the class said. "Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?" A little fellow shouted,"Cause your feet ain't empty." The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching." Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."
Congrat to you Lea for returning to Les Mis... I am trying to talk my husband into taking me to see it (again) so hopefully I will finally get to see you perform... I love your voice and for some strange reason have been hypnotically drawn to revisit my Miss Saigon soundtrack (now, of course, I can't STOP listening to it, go figure). Anyway, break a leg!!
I'm 70 posts late but still, CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And,oh, break a leg...
Congratulations and break a leg!!! :o)But before that... see you Feb 11!!! :pHope I can join my parents in the US this summer...might also plan to watch Les Miz with Absterz since I saw her post a message here too!
thanks for sharing your gift of musicality!!! enjoy ...hope i can watch...^_^
After Fantine....what's next? Cinderella! Great news and congratulations! You'd give Rodger and Hammerstein's Cinderella a fresh face and a beautiful lyrical approach to those songs. Nic would surely enjoy all those beautiful countries.
This is great news! Please let us know if ever there will be a new recording featuring you as Fantine :) Can't wait to see you as Cinderella in 2008. Break a leg!
I'm so jealous! I saw Les Miz in January, and it was great, but I wasn't a big fan of Daphne Rubin-Vega. Hmmm, maybe I could convince my mom to take me to see a second show of Les Miz?
finally, got our group tickets for the march 11th show!
whew! Got my tickets on March 17th Matinee show. Hope to see you there Lea. My sister and I are so excited, another dream come true! See you!
May I answer? She's not exactly the or a lead but is still a very important role. She is Cosette's mother and, as Lea said before, she dies early in the show. The main character really is Jean Valjean and he adopts Cosette, who falls in love with Marius and shares a sort of love triangle with Eponine. Eponine is the character who gets to sing On My Own. As you probably know, Lea played Eponine before. :)
hi ms. salonga, i am glad to hear that you are going back to new york and be a part of Les Miserables. we were able to watched your concert at nob hill san francisco as well. Buena Suerte to all of your performances.
The Fantine character may not be a lead role in the book but, for this musical production, it is considered as one. The top billed roles for this production are Jean Valjean, Javert, Fantine, and Eponine then followed by Cosette, the Thernadiers, Marius, and finally Enjolras. That is also the reverse order of how they come out for their bows during curtain call (Fantine and Eponine both come out together). I wonder if they will make Lea bow after Celia Keenan-Bolger (Eponine). Yes, Fantine's role is quite limited but she reappears at the end. She also gets to sing very beautiful and memorable songs. Although the role is limited, the actors who play Fantines have to play bullet boys and soldiers between the two segments of Fantine's performances. There is a game played by the Les Miz fans....that is, spotting the Fantine actor during those scenes as they are very well guised as men. :)
Happy Birthday, Lea! Have a safe flight to New York and see you on April 27th! Be safe!
Happy extended Birthday(in NY), Ms. Salonga.I am a young fan from Taiwan^^ and hope very much to see your perfomances!(aw,if only I could be there..)
Thanks for the clarification. :)
Belated happy birthday and congrats on Les Miz! Break a leg!!! :0)
