Les Miserables: A Student Theatre production
Thsi is Les Miserables. A summer product that was put together in 8 days by the very talented children of Burlington Summer Arts Camp. Summer of 2004


Have you ever seen anything so morally, ethically, legally, and artistically wretched? Feel free to chime in.

Of note:
* the OBC playing in the background
* ballet dancers
* a lot of spoken lyrics

Oh God, I've seen this before. Some of it. The added dialogue kills me.

... I speak from experience when I say Les Mis can never ever EVER be put together in eight days. It took my little community theatre production a whole summer of rehearsals to get it right.

WTF.

Some random thoughtehs:

  • What's with the dancing in "Master of the House?" It reminds meh of one of those cannibal ceremonies in some cartoons where they show the cannibals dancing in a circle around their slowly boiling prey combined with "We're All In This Together" and "Stick to the Status Quo" in High School Musical and the monster mash. It's almost as if they're worshipping the Thénardiers, who stand on platforms behind 'em. Spare us....it's creepy....

  • There's no word for how badly they raped Mis. No matter what the musical, it shouldn't be done by the "very talented" Kids Bop....

  • And, errrm, Javert doesn't need dancing girls. I think he'd be horribly creeped out around 'em, or otherwise show cold disdain.

  • I think this all falls into place after getting stoned, which'd just be one more reason why it's super-illegal, and not just adding dance and bad actors to the musical and lipsyncing ta the Broadway cast.

  • I want that hugeass flag the Enjolras(?)'s holding up at 49:42...that thing pwns so much. (Yup, I know I'm a n00by dork.) I'm gonna have to ask for an enormous red flag for Christmas, or make one, then stick it up on my barricade, er, bed and watch little green men dance in front of me to ecstatic (or angry, or misérable) music to satisfy my selfish desires.

  • Wow, Gavroche got a couple of goons to dance with him while he sang (or lip-synced...).....the song doesn't really work, though, since the Javert in the scene is a little person, too. Hell, they all are.

  • You have ta wonder if the girl who keeps appearing dancing ballet in every single scene Javert sings in was cast as "Javert dancing girl" or "Snookums lover" or something like that...

  • Gavveh's death in this was the most unemotional death scene I've ever watched. Brings to mind all those "Dear Sister" parodies on Youtube....only this is from too far away to see peoples' tear-stained faces and they aren't playing "mmmm whatcha saaaaaaay" in the background. Probly since this's almost three years old.

  • Valjean in a wheelchair rasping "God on high. hear my prayer.bring him home."

  • Where the heck is the sewers, Javert's suicide, the wedding, or "On my Own," or.....the video broke while I was scrolling through there.......I'll have ta watch it again some other time...ta look for where the hellz those are...

    *gouges eyes out*

    The people in the back saying the "you are reaching but you fall" stuff made me very upset. Heck, ALL the spoken lines made me very upset. Bamatobois was fun to watch throw a temper tantrum, and the Javert/Valjean fight made me fall out of my chair laughing. So did Marius. And Eponine's "I don't want you to see my family---- at work" The Master of the House dance was depressing. The Thenardiers were... I don't think words can describe that. It looked like they were worshipping Javert during Stars. The scene order needs to perish.

    Apparently, nearly every character has been split into three or more people.

    ATEOTD was probably the least painful part.

    OMG. O. M. G.

    That was basically the funniest/worst thing ever.

    "DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS TWO! FOUR! SIX! OH! ONE!"

    And there were 3 little Cosettes. And 3 Gavroches. And Oh my god. That was sooooo bad. And at the beginning ... weren't there, like, 5 Javerts?

    *falls out of chair*
