Directors Roundtable Backdrops
Les Mis is famous for its elaborate set, including a giant barricade on a turntable--but it is certainly possible to use backdrops and more modest set pieces instead! Begin with FIRE SKY, perfect as a background for Jean Valjean's time on the chain gang and to place behind your barricade later in the show. STONE WALL is another versatile drop that can back your factory scenes as easily as your hospital--and even sewer--scenes. VINTAGE CITY DOCKS, with some nighttime lighting, is just right for the dock scenes, where a desperate Fantine struggles to survive. Use OLD WORLD TAVERN INTERIOR for raucous "Master of the House" and use OLD WORLD TOWN SQUARE - B for the squalid streets of Paris. VICTORIAN PALACE BALLROOM is an elegant choice for Cosette and Marius' wedding. Finally, STARRY NIGHT is another versatile drop, equally at home behind Javert's intense "Stars" as it is for the show's emotional "Epilogue." "At the End of the Day," you'll be very happy you chose to work with TheatreWorld Backdrops for your production of Les Mis!
