Same-Sex Kiss Cut From Singapore Production of LES MISERABLES
The Associated Press reports that a same-sex kiss, intended as a comic bit, has been removed from a Singapore production of Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil's worldwide smash hit, LES MISERABLES.
The report states that Singapore's Media Development Authority gave the show a "General" rating based on the script, which does not specify the kiss. Rather than accept an "Advisory" rating, the show's organizer, Mediacorp VizPro, released a statement noting they have decide to "remove the scene."
The current Broadway production of LES MISERABLES is scheduled to end its run at the Imperial Theatre on September 4th, 2016. Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel, Les Miserables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. The magnificent score includes the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Stars," "Bring Him Home," "Do You Hear the People Sing?," "One Day More," "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables," "Master Of The House" and many more.
