Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. Woodminster Amphitheater hosts an outdoor production of this tale of passion and revolution in 19th-century France, which won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was made into an Oscar-nominated film. Cozy up under a blanket and watch ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption and the young, innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette and the student Marius are set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution. It's a celebration of the human struggle for love, justice and happiness in the face of hardship, carried forward on a gorgeous score, including the beloved songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "One day More," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

Again this is one of my favorite small theaters. I love this space and I always enjoy their shows. Bus stop was good and enjoyable. More serious than I had anticipated. The cast was talented. Some spots seemed a bit slow yet that is how it was written or directed. Also, at times, I felt like a few of the actors were reading their lines versus really acting them. They did not do it throughout the play, just in certain sections every now and then. Excellent set and costumes as always. A nice evening out at truly one of the best theaters in the bay.
A play by William Inge. Directed by Michael Ryken.
Long before The Breakfast Club, there was Bus Stop. It’s winter on the Great Plains, and a snowstorm near Kansas City has stranded a group of bus passengers at a local diner. During their weather-enforced overnight layover, the diverse group of strangers develop short-lived but revealing relationships as they learn about each other—and about themselves.
