No more scenes of student revolutions.

Thousands of new complaints about the popular musical Les Misérables Singapore show have surfaced.

This after its allegedly subversive plot caused audiences to feel that it promotes lawlessness, glorifies activism, and undermines confidence in the police force.

This news comes after a complaint was made by a concerned member of the public that resulted in a scene containing a same-sex kiss between actors being removed from the musical.

Ngoh Ho Moh, who watched the musical on its opening night, said that she was shocked by the heroic portrayal of student revolutionaries and its casting of the policeman, Javert, as a villain.

“Singapore is a conservative society strongly based on the rule of law,” she said, “and portraying policemen as the bad guys will strongly undermine the public’s trust in the effectiveness of the men in blue.”

Ngoh also added that the students should have been in school studying instead, rather than gathering in the streets trying to overthrow the government.

She added that such scenes ran the risk of teaching our young and impressionable students to be rebellious rather than blindly obeying authority, and that’s a terrible thing to be learning.

Other audience members criticised the portrayal of serial criminal Jean Valjean as well.

Pak Mattar, who also watched the musical on its opening evening, said that Valjean should not have been allowed to live to a ripe old age and die a natural death.

“He should have been punished for his crimes and not be allowed to run free,” he said, adding that “portraying Valjean as the hero of the show misleads the audience into thinking that it is possible for people to get away with their crimes, and undermines Singapore’s strongly rule-based society.”

Not all feedback to the musical, however, was negative.

Many of those interviewed also expressed admiration for some aspects of the plot.

Ngoh, for instance, was very impressed by the idea of organising criminals into chain gangs to perform public labour.

She said: “I think this is a very elegant way to fix our dependency on foreign labour, so people will stop making so much noise about the human rights of migrant workers.”

They should have heeded the warning of highly religious Singaporeans.

Thousands of Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to watch people sing and dance, have turned gay.

This after they watched Les Misérables, which featured a scene of two men kissing each other on the lips.

As a result of witnessing the event, they have become gay, which is irreversible.

One Singaporean, Tong Xing Lian, said he was half-expecting this to happen, but wasn’t sure if it would really come to pass: “I should have heeded the warning of highly religious Singaporeans when they warned about the effects of watching two men kiss each other on the lips in public.”

“Now I am completely, utterly gay, there is simply no turning back to my straight ways, having been convinced the gay way is the only way.”

Other Singaporeans who witnessed the transformation of their own sexual orientation attributed the changes to the actors movements on stage.

One other local, Kua Hee, said: “These men dressed up in their costumes and waving their flags with patriotism while singing songs.”

“These are the hallmarks of a provocative liberal gay agitator. This was exactly what the highly religious Singaporeans warned us about.”

“We have no choice but to live with our gay identity from now on.”

At press time, it has been discovered that the upcoming National Day celebrations on Aug. 9 will also feature men dressed up in their costumes and waving their flags with patriotism while singing songs.
