Hey y'all, post your favorite god-awful regional or school productions of beloved musicals and comment on them here!

Here's a classic desecration of Les Miserables, performed by Blacklick Valley High School, to get the ball rolling!

I don't have anything to contribute (yet)
but I have to say that is without a doubt the single worst thing I've ever seen...seriously
You're reminding me of people you hear at the movies asking questions every ten seconds, "Who is that? Why is that guy walking down the street? Who's that lady coming up to him? Uh-oh, why did that car go by? Why is it so dark in this theater?" - FindingNamo on strummergirl

"If artists were machines, then I'm just a different kind of machine...I'd probably be a toaster. Actually, I'd be a toaster oven because they're more versatile. And I like making grilled cheese" -Regina Spektor

"That's, like, twelve shows! ...Or seven." -Crazy SA Fangirl

"They say that just being relaxed is the most important thing [in acting]. I take that to another level, I think kinda like yawning and...like being partially asleep onstage is also good, but whatever." - Sherie Rene Scott

This thread is both hysterical and mean.

I'm glad there was no YouTube when I was in HS. Although our "How to Succeed" was pretty good.

This thread makes me feel better about myself.
"You have two kinds of shows on Broadway revivals and the same kind of musicals over and over again, all spectacles. You get your tickets for The Lion King a year in advance, and essentially a family... pass on to their children the idea that that's what the theater is a spectacular musical you see once a year, a stage version of a movie. It has nothing to do with theater at all. It has to do with seeing what is familiar.... I don't think the theatre will die per se, but it's never going to be what it was.... It's a tourist attraction." Stephen Sondheim

With regards tothe Les Miserables one Day More video. All I can say is this. I assume that because the character of Marius is French he MUST wear a Beret.

No, ALL French people wear berets. Didn't that video teach you ANYTHING?

Also, Marius CANNOT sing.

Actually Sirnotappering, I closed the video right after the line " I did not live until today." Because I couldn't stand the Marius's singing and didn't want to hear it a second more. His beret was the only one I saw.

this isn't really a production, but you HAVE to listen to this rendition of No Good Deed
