Bravo to Downey High Performing Arts for its outstanding performance of Les Miserables. After watching many marvelous performances this season at the Gallo Center, including Tony Bennett, Neil Berg's "100 Years of Broadway" and "Cats," I sat in awe as I watched our local talent shine. Their voices and portrayals were spectacular. This outstanding performance reconfirmed my belief in the importance of arts program in our schools. Bravo, Downey High! Bravo!
