Larry Seiler is from West Boylston, MA. In “Les Misérables,” he plays six different ensemble characters including a brutal prison guard, then rises to the level of constable. He also carouses in the Thenardiers' low tavern. Ten years later, He’s in Paris as Brujon, a more brutal member of the Thenardier gang who disappears at the end of Act 1, but he returns as the (off-stage) French army officer, end the show as the Major Domo at Marius' and Cosette's wedding.
Larry says playing six characters was challenging at first but as the process went on it got easier. When asked what he likes the best about theatre, Seiler stated “Musical theater allows me to more completely be the person singing the song. What is more, musical theater is filled with characters who are singing about the most important thing in their life at that moment. That experience is essential to me, and the chance to share such songs with people who want to hear is the biggest thing I get from musical theater -- and I get it there more than anywhere else. It's especially good when achieved in the camaraderie of a group committed to giving all they have to the audience.”
