Martin Guerre

They all look for someone to blame
But to hell with this crowd
I will be proud
That Martin Guerre is my name!

Boublil and Schonberg would follow their hit Les Miserables with the successful  Miss Saigon. Their next collaboration, Martin Guerre, was problematic. The show is a three person story but the music has the same epic sweep as Les Miz. Critics have compared the score unfavorably. Despite multiple revisions the trials of Martin, Arnaud and Bernadette have not compelled audiences the way Valjean, Eponine and Kim have.

Variety 1999 review.

The belty title song.
