all of les amis turning up for Gavroche’s parents evening and all the parents confused why there’s this large group of young adults sitting in the classes tiny chairs 

and Gavroche’s teacher having to squeeze them all into their office 

all of les amis really engrossed in what the teacher is saying and asking so many questions about how Gavroche is doing and if he can improve anywhere 

this carrying on until Gavroche finishes high school and goes into uni 

Gavroche's Death/Screams of Agony
  • Gavroche's Death/Screams of Agony
  • The many Grantaires
Play

I don’t know about the West End, but over here, our Grantaires take their relationship with Gavroche very seriously. So here is a compilation of some Grantaire’s screaming in agony when Gavroche is killed :D

  1. Joe Spieldenner, 4th National Tour (this is THE scream of agony. The official one)
  2. John Rapson, Broadway (This was early in his run, where he actually said “OH GOD NO”. Very memorable.)
  3. John Rapson, Broadway (Later in his run, where it’s just a scream)
  4. Adam Monley, Broadway understudy
  5. Dennis Moench, Broadway understudy 
  6. Eric Van Tielen, Tour understudy (dat whimper doe)
  7. Joe Spieldenner, North Shore Music Theatre (just… wait it out. The whole thing. It’s worth it)

grantaire being really fond of kids because they remind him that human beings are inherently good

grantaire being the best babysitter for gavroche ever and always making sure he’s sober as hell around him and drawing games in chalk all over the patio outside eponine’s flat

the rest of the amis subtly encouraging gavroche to come to more meetings bc they’ve never seen R this happy before

gavroche and R being BEST BUDS FOREVER
