Six months after fire destroyed Copperstar Repertory Company’s offices and scene and costume shops, the East Valley theater company is scheduled to host its first production of “Les Misérables School Edition.”
You may not recognize her name, but you’ve probably heard Lea Salonga many times before. After all, she is the singing voice of Disney Princesses Jasmine in “Aladdin” and Fa Mulan in “Mulan.”
My first introduction to “Les Misérables,” the epic, schmaltzy musical loosely based on the Victor Hugo novel, was the most recent New York production in 2006.

Tom Hooper's extravaganza, big-screen telling of the beloved musical "Les Miserables" is as relentlessly driven as the ruthless Inspector Javert himself.
