Trivia

This particular version of "Les Miserables" was originally exhibited in two separate parts. Purportedly, these were shown on separate days - perhaps weeks or months apart. As recently as the early 1990s, the two parts were shown in a single day, with a brief intermission, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. See more »
