Web Special: What’s Your Rallying Cry?

March 4, 2011 at 7:59 am Leave a comment

Nearly 150 years after the book was published, and more than 30 years after the musical debuted in Paris, Les Misérables continues to be a powerful force.   This past week in Wisconsin, protesters in the state capital sang “Do You Hear the People Sing?”–which was used as the rallying cry of the 1832 student revolutionaries in the musical version of Victor Hugo’s book.

Baltimore may not be the site of a revolution–at the moment, anyhow–but you can take a look at the dramatization of the June Revolution at the Hippodrome this week.  The new touring production of Les Misérables will be there through March 6.

In this special just for the web, Maryland Morning Theater Critic J. Wynn Rousuck and Tom Hall talk about the production.
