Taylor Swift Is OUT Of Les Mis! Samantha Barks Cast As Eponine!

Whoa! What happened here?!

Although Taylor Swift had been widely reported as the lucky lady to be cast as Eponine in the upcoming Tom Hooper-directed adaptation of the musical Les Misérables, it appears now that theater actress Samantha Barks, who played the role during the 25th Anniversary Concert, has won the role!

During the curtain call of Manchester's Palace Theatre performance of Oliver! last night, in which Barks is currently playing Nancy, producer Cameron Mackintosh appeared on stage to make the announcement for the first time to the cast and audience alike that the young actress had won the part - and according to audience members present, "the look on her face was priceless."

Check out her performance of On My Own from the West End concert (above)!

You can't deny she's a pretty solid fit!

But we can't help but wonder what went down behind-the-scenes that got Swift the boot? That was the role of a lifetime for her!

What do U think? Are U pleased with the new Eponine?

New Phantom Tour Coming Next Year!

Filed under: Broadway Babies

phantom going on world tour

Back in January, we were very impressed to hear that the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera had a killer week where it grossed $1,390,530.53, which was its highest weekly gross in 23 years!

Now, theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh will breathe new life into the show not that it needs it and he'll be putting together a worldwide Phantom tour in 2012.

The new version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's play will be helmed by Laurence Connor, and it will feature "new sets and costumes by Paul Brown and lighting by three-time Olivier Award winner Paule Constable."

Should be inneresting to see how this version differs from the Broadway musical.

Will U check out the new Phantom tour next year when it plays near you?
