News   PHOTO CALL: Gypsy 2000: Transvestites at the Competition
 
Les Miserables, while losing 14 minutes from its show, also decided to revamp the entire production. The new, X-rated Les Miz featured a Rocky Horror-esque Javert in fishnets, a lesbian Cosette and Fantine and pelvic choreography, sung to "You Gotta Have a Gimmick" from Gypsy. Rent, on the other hand, sung the praises of their special girl - er, guy - in a Beauty and the Beast parody, "Angel."
