Les Mis Shanghai! *screams* Thank you for posting this Acaila!
I genuinely wish I was 10 years older, living in Shanghai, and a fan of Les Mis already in 2002. But I wasn't.
I live far, far away from Shanghai and was younger than little Cosette when Les Mis came to Shanghai. I heard about the 2016 Asian tour two years ago and have been waiting for it since then. There were rumors about it coming to China in 2016 but the plan was eventually canceled for some reason. But actually even if Les Mis did come again I couldn't see it since I'm now in the US, and I would probably be cursing my bad luck for being stuck here when the Broadway revival is over while there's the Asian tour on the other side of the Earth...
The video is absolutely right about there being no tradition of musical in China but now we're getting there step by step. There have been Chinese productions of other musicals years ago. I've seen Avenue Q once and it was absolutely amazing. I wish they could do a Chinese production of Les Mis too. Those people really have the potential to do it justice. (They're now doing Man of la Mancha and Sound of Music which I'm planning to see when they come to my city).
