“Les Miserables” – one of my 5 or so favorite musicals – ended with pretty much every Revolutionist perishing, so I hope that this video ~ as hilarious and clever as it is ~ is not indicative of what’s to come. Let’s hope Act 2 of the upcoming presidential election ends on a sunnier note than the fates of 99% of the characters in the play.
It’s a stirring, depressing, monumental musical (the 1987 original, not the recently closed revival) and “One Day More” ends Act 1.
(It was a stroke of genius to have Putin…I mean Palin…as Madame Thenardier and McCain as Javert. How apropos!)
Picture it, November 3rd 2008…
