Les Miserables and his Orchestra

From Witterpedia

Musical starring Huge Action, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Helena Period Drama. The name comes from a joke made by Nigel Floyd - as he and Mark Kermode walked past the Palace theatre where the musical was playing as part of its West End run, Floyd pointed to the sign and said "look - Les Miserables and his Orchestra. Still playing."

Thanks to an audio error, the clip from the film played on Wittertainment featured Russell Crowe's singing without any backing orchestral accompaniment. This led to such a flurry of people saying they had been put off seeing the film that Mark decided it would actually be unfair to play the clip again.
