Broadway Song of the Week

Les Misérables 

Playwright: Claude-Michel Schönberg

Released: December 1986

Song: “A Little Fall of Rain”

At the battle of the barricade, Eponine saves Marius’s life by stepping in front of a bayonet. She is ushered behind the barricade where she tells Marius not to worry. She tells him that nothing can hurt her now, not even “a little fall of rain.” For the rest of the song, Marius holds Eponine in his arms as she slowly fades away.
