"Oh My Eponine!" and Other Spins on "Les Miz"

I bring you Eponine... through the lens of pop-culture. Even if you're not a fan, you will enjoy this stuff!
  • "Oh My Eponine!" by Ozma.
  • Chis Dilley singing "On My Own" with surprise lyrics!
  • The Anime "Les Miserables" with the best Eponine death scene ever.
  • And a Fantine/Valjean fan-vid set to "I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight" because of the '80s awesomeness.

While enjoying a staged concert of "Les Miserables," Abbie, Brian and I bond over our love for Eponine and conclude that she stands out as the fan-favorite amongst the gays. The reaction of the audience at The Hollywood Bowl to Lea Michele's performance confirms this.

After the performance, Abbie, Heather and I go dancing at Akbar. Heather's favorite is Cosette, and we love her anyway!

Wait a minute! I have always loved Eponine the best and I am not gay. I thought everyone (except for my mom who loves Fantine - but I would expect the mother of girls to feel that way) related to her the most - unrequited love is a bummer.

I went to Les Miserables at the Hollywood Bowl too. I was there Sunday - what about you?
