So I had said the Robert Marien, Matt Laurent, and Myriam Brousseau were in the World Tour Cast but it seems that they are in the Asian Tour 2011-2012 Cast. I Suppose with two English Tour cast information get a little confusing. Or Perhaps I’m Waaay off and was wrong about a World Tour.
Anyway here is the Cast of the 2011 Asian Tour Cast
Quasimodo – Matt Laurent
Esmeralda – Candice Parise
Frollo – Robert Marien
Gringoire – Dennis Ten Vergert
Phoebus – Stephen Webb
Clopin – Ian Carlyle
Fleur de Lys – Lilly-Jane Young
Quasimodo/Frollo – Nigel Richards
Gringoire/Phoebus – Tim Driesen (Source)
Esmeralda/Fleur de Lys – Myriam Brousseau (Source)
Quasimodo/Clopin -Marc Akinfolarin
According to Twitter posts, Rachel Muldoon and Tom Muggeridge are in cast, my guess is that they maybe dancers but I don’t know, some how they’re are linked with the cast.
There is a World Tour. It Starts October 31th in Russia. Tour will be English.
(((I’m sorry I got it wrong, but I’ll post something when (and if) and cast news is released on the 2012-2013 cast unless the Asian Tour is in fact the tour that General Entertaiment Associates meant and if that’s the case, why did the say it would be 2012-2013 when the Asian Tour only going to last for a reported 8-9 months? My guess is that the Asian Tour is the Tour Cast and General Entertaiment should have been more clear in their write up. But still it would be cool to have a world tour of Notre Dame de Paris)))
The Notre Dame de Paris Asian TourCastFrollo will be played by Robert Marien. He has also played Frollo in the 2000 Candian Cast and in the 2004 French Cast. He was born in May 5 1956 and is a Québécois. He is an actor, singer, and songwriter who has performed in the musical Les Misérables in Montreal, Paris, New York and London. He has also appeared in numerous films.
Here is a clip of him singing as Frollo from the Canadian Cast with Gino Quilico
I think he a good choice for the role. I have nothing bad to say about this casting choice.
Seems like the Tour Cast with be mostly Canadian Performers and since Matt Laurent with be playing Quasimodo I would predict that the odds of Sylvain Cossette playing Gringoire are high (Sylvain Cossette and Matt Laurent have worked together and Sylvain Cossette has played Gringoire before in the 2000 Candian cast along with Robert Marien.)
Myriam Brousseau is another Québécois and has been in Les Miserables, Beauty and the Beast, Romeo and Juliet and ASSASSINS. She’ll be playing the alternative for Fleur de Lys and Esmeralda. I’ve never heard her sing so I’ll hold off on judgement.
Edit- This casting refers to the Asian Tour Cast for more info click here
I’ve been informed by a very big fan of Notre Dame on Squidoo, that Matt Laurent has confirmed he’ll play Quasimodo in the Asian Tour cast of Notre Dame de Paris. To read the comment click here. Comments are at the bottom.
I’m not surpise that Matt Laurent is going to play Quasimodo agian. He was an alternative in teh original cast, and he play Quasimodo in the Asian Tour. And Since he’s Canadian he speaks English. He also a decent singer, so I have no problem with this casting. The rest of the cast we’ll see.
Matt Laurent as Quasimodo in the Asian tour cast of Notre Dame de Paris with Nadia Bel as Esmeralda
Please Note – I’m not 100% sure if this is Nadia Bel or Chiara Di Bari, Looking at pictures of them I think it’s Nadia Bel, however if I’m wrong let me know and I’ll fix it, though I like 98% sure of it.
Edit – Change World to Asian. For more info on casting click here
According to General Entertainment Associates there will be a 2012 Tour of Notre Dame de Paris. The Languge will be in English and it has not been re-translated. The original English Translation that Will Jenning wrote will be used. Personally I wish it was re-translated it. Some of the songs are fine but more than a few are not. Some the lyrics are just down right laughable.
The website goes into specific of show’s history but other than it being a year long touring cast, that will be performed in English there is no news on casting, dates, or location. I’ll try to stay informed.
Confirmed Casting –
Matt Laurent as Quasimodo
Robert Marien as Frollo
Myriam Brousseau as the alternate for Esmeralda and Fleur de Lys
Edit- I’m not sure, but I think it maybe regarding the Asian Tour Cast. For More info on Casting Click Here
