“Les Miserables” opens Wednesday night at the Savannah Center and a member of the original Broadway cast will be here – in the audience.
Joe Kolinski, who appeared in the debut of “Les Miz” on Broadway in 1987, will be at the show to support his brother, Jack Kolinski, a Villager playing the lead role of Jean Valjean.
The musical runs from March 11-15 and starts at 7 each night. This is Jack Kolinski’s first stage role. Until now, the 64-year old was best known in The Villages for singing karaoke.
“I’m so proud of Jack,” said Joe Kolinski, who was in “Les Miz” for nine years and has appeared in many Broadway productions. “He’s worked so hard and I know he’s going to be great.”

The cast also features Carolyn Hoffman (as Cosette), Alex Scopino (Javert), and Sue Schuler, who also directs, as Fantine. Maestro Pasquale Valerio is music conductor and guest musical consultant.
