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.

We enjoyed everything about this production, from the set design to the promenade presentation, the passion of the actors and the effective, but not too gruesome handling of violence. Even my friend, who was apprehensive about being "on stage" with the performers, fell into a comfortable rhythm once the play was underway.
Shakespeare’s brilliant contemporary and rival playwright, Christopher Marlowe, penned Edward II at the end of his brief life. Now, his vicious exploration of power and persuasion explodes on to the stage in this innovative promenade production, directed by The Hypocrites’ Sean Graney, where standing audience members are able—and encouraged—to move freely about the playing area throughout the 75-minute performance. Edward II marks a CST debut for both Marlowe and Graney.
