[Interview] Les Misérables’ Haley Dortch Talks Playing Fantine as a Woman of Color and Michigan College Student

Les Misérables’, the world’s most popular musical, is stopping in Detroit during this holiday season.

I talked to Haley Dortch about playing Fantine as a woman of color, balancing being a student at the University of Michigan Musical Theatre program and tour life, and the routine that keeps her grounded.

Les Misérables is playing at the Fisher Theatre until January 8, 2023. You can buy tickets here.
