Les Miserables producer Cameron Mackintosh has admitted he would love to see Anne Hathaway reprise her role of Fantine on Broadway.

The 28-year-old show will return to New York following the huge success of the movie of the musical and Anne has said she would jump at the chance to take part in a short run.

Speaking at the British Consul's reception for British Oscar nominees in Los Angeles, musical guru Cameron said: "I would love her to do it but I'm not sure she means it.

"That performance she's done is so incredible but it's an entirely cinematic performance. You couldn't do that in the same way on stage.

"If she wants to reinvent it in another way and come on stage, I would be thrilled."

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
