The Musical Wonders of the Stranger Things Babes Continue Apace With Gaten Matarazzo’s Les Mis Cover

The higher powers behind Stranger Things have said that they aren’t totally sure as to what shape a prospective season two of the Netflix series would take. Well, we’ve got a suggestion for ’em: big, honkin’ musical. First, we learned that Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) is a covers queen. Then, we got word of Joe Keery’s (Steve) psychedelic-rock roots. Now, there’s beautiful video proof that Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) is a Broadway baby. The curly-mopped kid, perched in a party space in front of a giant Spongebob Squarepants, sang “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables — and not to be excessively on-the-nose, but you can bet Matarazzo carried that tune to its chosen berth right nice. His performance is not his first experience with the operatic musical; Matarazzo played Gavroche and Petit Gervais in the show on Broadway. Well, now you’re all imagining your beloved Dustin dying atop the barricade after playing a fool. Whoops! Watch Matarazzo do his best Colm Wilkinson above.
