    musical sensation Les Miserables

    While developing a notable status in theater, Eddie Redmayne was also exploring the foreign land of film ... He soon became recognizable because of his role in musical sensation Les Miserables, which led to the part of a lifetime.


    Hi,

    Is "recognizable" in the above equivalent to "notable?"
    Second, how should I interpret "musical sensation Les Miserables?" Is it "sensational musical Les Miserables?" Thanks,

    I would say it simply means that the general public started to recognise his face much more frequently than they once had.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It means "the hugely successful musical, Les Miserables."
