Do you think that the Asian Tour cast will turn in to World Tour Cast? I think they might.

A Video of Matt Laurent (who has played Quausimodo over 400 times) sings Dance my Esmeralda on a Russian TV show.

I think he does a great job. He really does make some of the more awkward lines work. The arrangement is a bit more of a pop sound than in the show.  I find it cute that he does that head tilt back move that you see Garou do a lot ( at 0.48). Maybe now it’s just a Quasimodo gesture to get the right tone of voice, but I alway associate that head tilt with Garou.

Enjoy.

Today we’re going to look at Anne Meson.

Meson has played both Esmeralda and Fleur de Lys. Other Actresses who shares this distinction are Julie Zenatti, Chiara di Bari and Jessica Grove. She is one of 10 actors that have been in two casts that are in different languages (Garou, Daniel Lavoie, Bruno Pelletier, Luck Merville, Natasha St.Pier, Matt Laurent, Robert Marien, Chiara Di Bari, Dennis Ten Vergert and Tim Driesen)

Meson when she was younger was the  French Disney ambassador and sang songs for OliverLittle Mermaid and Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers. She sang Part of that World on the Little Mermiad 1990 sound track

I wish I could have seen more of her performances.

 

A Behind-the-Scenes Fun Fact – I have 28 folders of Pictures of this Cast alone. I didn’t always have this many, originally I had 11 folders and then  I looking to see when the cast was performing in Taipei or if they even are performing there (I think they are though)  and I found about 200 pictures. And just so everyone knows these pictures in this post are only from folder #9.  I don’t know why I latch on to this cast I haven’t heard enough them to glean any insight of how good the cast is.

Enjoy the Pictures
