Non-surviors From Musicals

This post is kind of similar to yesterday’s. Yesterday, I wrote a list of all of musical characters that actually survive the entire musical. But there are actually musical characters who die at some point in the musical. I will write a list of favorite characters who die in a musical, but for now, I can only seem to think of characters from the same musical.

So spoilers could be ahead:

  1. Fantine
  2. Eponine
  3. Gavroche
  4. Enjolras
  5. Friends of the ABC-students
  6. Jean Valjean

That is an insane list. All of these characters are part of Les Mis, which means Les Mis has a high death toll. There is a reason why I wasn’t able to include any of Les Mis characters yesterday. It was because all of my favorite characters don’t survive the entire musical. For the longest time ever, I always believed a death would never be memorable, but the Les Mis characters proved that fact wrong. These characters have something wonderful and  joyful about their deaths except for one character.

  1. Les Miz definitely has the higest death toll of any musical I can think of. And Les Miz is one of those musicals that really taught me about how much power songs have in a musical mostly due to songs like “A Little Fall of Rain”, “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables”, “Fantine’s Death”, “Final Battle”, “Javert’s Soliloquy/Suicide” and “Finale.”


    1. At yesterday’s post, it was so hard to write down all of those characters who I had to leave off any Les Mis characters because all my favorite Les Mis characters die. Les Mis defiantly taught me that deaths in a musical can be memorable even when you are watching a favorite character die
