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.

I've never been to the Viaduct Theater before, so was a little uncertain upon arriving given its non-descript entrance, but was pleasantly surprised at the large space inside. The show was great, with first-rate singers and actors. Some excellent, funny moments. Well staged, well lit, well costumed. It was definitely one of the more memorable Sondheim shows I've seen. Well done.
Weaving together dream-like narratives of the assassinations and attempted assassinations of the U.S. presidents, Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy brings to light the pain of alienation, regret, and isolation that underlies each character’s failure to achieve the American Dream. The New York Times hails Assassins as “an extraordinarily original piece of theater,” and the __L____.____A____.__ Times says “Sondheim’s killer musical comedy hits the mark…sidesplitting and sobering in equal measure, this is the most provocative musical in years.”
