STAGE TUBE: Watch LES MISERABLES Lightsaber Showdown
In the video below, the epic showdown between Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert gets even cooler with lightsabers and force powers! Chance McClain, the creator of the Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog fan prequel Horrible Turn, is back with this epic imagining of the showdown featured in Les Miserables' The Confrontation. It's hard to sing when you have a lightsaber to your throat!
LES MISERABLES has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, original French lyrics by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel, with an English-language libretto by Herbert Kretzmer. Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a burly French peasant of abnormal strength and potentially violent nature, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister's child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him to, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary periodin France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
