I’m so sick of this stigma that theatre geeks’ favorite musicals can’t be High School Musical or Les Mis or Wicked or Phantom or Hamilton or any other popular musicals. Like. There is a reason it is popular, and that’s because it’s good.
*In My Head*:
Valjean never knew that Javert committed suicide did he? When he told him to meet him at Rue Plumet and he never came, he must have been so happy thinking Javert has learned mercy. If he had known that Javert committed suicide what would he have done? He would probably feel so horrible about it, maybe even going as far as to blame himself
I love how 155 years after Les Mis was published the impact is so great that we are still gaining souls to The Cause™
Like I’ll be scrolling through tags or whatever and see people’s drawings and they’ll be like “started reading les mis for the first time and decided to draw Cosette,” or “I just watched Les Mis and why did no one tell me there were GAYS this is amazing"
Somewhere out in the universe Vicky HugeHoe is cackling with glee because even a century and a half later he’s still making people Fucking Miserable™
