7. Smash

Maybe you didn’t watch the Most Important Television Program of Our Time 2.0, in which case, I hope you’re enjoying your male heterosexual privilege while it lasts. The rest of us were by turns elated and appalled by NBC’s bizarrely deracinated backstage saga, set in an alien Broadway world where no one seemed to know what a bar mitzvah was and the only Jew (apart from Manny Azenberg, as “Himself”) was Tom, the affable composer played by Christian Borle, which, delightful a performer as he is, is a little like doing a show starring Michael Cera as the only black guy in the NBA.

It’s “Les Mis.”

Les Misérables (pron.: /leɪ ˈmɪzərɑːb/ or /leɪ ˌmɪzəˈrɑːb/; French pronunciation: ​[le mizeˈʁablə]), colloquially known as Les Mis or Les Miz /leɪ ˈmɪz/…

Whatevs, you purists. This was a delightful and lol inspiring column! //sings Les Miz as she stands in line on Xmas day in frigging Utah with the goys//

Posted under my husband’s name accidental. Sorry. Sheryl Hussien Ginsberg

It’s French. No “z” in Les Misérables — only in the phonetics.
