A group of neighbors in Pleasantville is proving time in quarantine can still be fun.
The tight-knit community performed "Les Miserables" while still practicing social distancing.
Pleasantville native Ali Ewoldt is a Broadway actress and came up with the idea.
The actress has starred in big Broadway shows, including "Les Miserables" and "Phantom of the Opera." Like other actors, she is currently out of work. But she decided to create a video with neighbors to try and raise money and awareness for her now struggling industry.
"'Les Miserables' is so beloved. I've loved it since I was a small child and I know all the words. One of the things that inspired me, and it has these incredible lyrics that talk about darkness and overcoming it in the end, and we know tomorrow will come for our industry and everybody in the world," she says,.
The entire video took about two weeks to put together.
Those who want to donate can click here. The money will help individuals in the Broadway industry impacted financially by the coronavirus.
