Re: Les Mis to Be Revamped...
Have you noticed the Death of Gavroche in the 25th anniversary Storyboard?
It is not unseen behind the barricade, but the barricade splits to reveal the dead soldiers bodies. After Gavroche's death, the barricade closes back to it's original position.
Why did they change that? Too complicated to do? It doesn't seem much complicated than other moments in the show...
I think it would have been much better than the actual one we can see in the tour... Moreover, the opening/closing of the barricade implies a "pause" before and after Gavroche's death, allowing tension to build as he goes beyond the, and time to release after.
The most disappointing moment of the show, one of the only moment when we miss the turntable could have been much better if it had been done the way it is in this Storyboard.
Or maybe I missed something and they changed this for the US tour?
