Grand and uplifting, Les Miserables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. This tale of passion and revolution in 19th-century France won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was adapted into an Oscar-winning film. Drury Lane kicks off its 30th anniversary season with this sweeping tale of romance, passion, suspense and redemption set against the stormy backdrop of the French Revolution. You'll be immersed in the tale of ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption while trying to outrun the determined police inspector Javert, and the innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette for the revolutionary and student, Marius. It's a celebration of the human struggle for justice and happiness in the face of hardship, carried forward on a gorgeous score, including the beloved songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

If you don't live in Hyde Park, getting supper can be a little bit of a problem because you have to get to the area through rush hour traffic, resulting in a short window of time to eat before the show. There's nothing much around the theatre, so you have to eat somewhere else, then drive to the theatre.dining • Nov 21 2013 star this tip starred

This is a condensed version of the Iliad, told by an unidentified narrator who is not exactly Homer, but might be a guy who was at the siege of Troy, and somehow wound up telling you about it, and to some extent, acting it out. If you are familiar with the Iliad, you will enjoy the colloquial take on it. If you are not familiar with it, I think you will enjoy it as a first exposure to the Iliad. It's a one-man show, well acted. It's in a single act, lasting about 90 minutes. It has a few gory descriptions of killing.
