that I tried to abridge Les Miserables was about a year and a half ago. Les Mis wasn't on Broadway at the moment, so I started writing a version of the abridge that takes place in an alternate universe where Les Mis was still running because, to keep the show from having empty houses, the producers create Weissler-style casting of stars.
It was going to be called Celebrity Les Mis. I remember that it starred Ben Affleck as Marius, Bronson Pinchot as a really crappy Enjolras, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears playing a siamese-twins version of Eponine, and Danny Devito as Gavroche.

And of course, Sean Connery was Jean Valjean.

Shame I was too lazy to do it. But I liked the idea...

Les Miserables, Trekkie version now that's something you don't see everyday. If it had been made Celebrity Les Mis would have been awesome with Sean Connery as Jean Valjean.
