‘Les Misérables’ Is Coming Back to Broadway
Now that there’s a new generation of pre-teen girls and gays who hate Cosette because of the fairly awful movie version of Les Misérables, it’s the perfect time to bring the musical back to Broadway, don’t you think? Sure, the original show closed less than ten years ago and has already been revived once already, but, you guys, why waste all of our time with a revival of some other stupid musical or—dare I say it—something new when we can just pay money to see the same old crap all over again?! Oh, but now producer Cameron Mackintosh is going to get really high-concept on us. This time, the production will be inspired by paintings by Les Misérables author Victor Hugo. You know, those paintings that we’re all aware of. And hopefully, like the people behind the movie version, these crackerjack Broadway producers will hire some actors who, you know, aren’t good at singing. That’ll be fresh!
