Needless to say he succeeded; bringing together members of the original 1985 West End cast with the performers from the anniversary touring production which came home to the Barbican with members of the current West End cast, the performance by the "company of companies" included a spectacular rendition of "Bring Him Home" by original Jean Valjean Colm Wilkinson, the Queen's theatre's Simon Bowman, the Barbican's John Owen-Jones and the concert's own Alfie Boe.
In addition, the whole 1985 company joined together for a performance of "One Day More" with the original company members Michael Ball (Marius), Roger Allam (Javert), Frances Ruffelle (Eponine), Rebecca Caine (Cosette) and Alun Armstrong (Thenardier) showing theatregoers at The O2 and spectators in cinemas around the world exactly why this musical is 25 years young.
