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.

From the company of magicians, freaks and geeks that brought you the summer 2008 smash hit Dante Dies!! (and then things get weird) by Walt McGough, comes a new work from Sideshow Theatre Company: Everything Freezes: another winter’s tale, co-written by Artistic Director Jonathan L. Green and Literary Manager Walt McGough, with an inspirational assist from William Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. In the midst of a tragic tale of jealousy, a marble statue comes to life and kind of distracts everybody. Two families struggle for normalcy in a world where resurrections, hauntings, and a very real miracle are suddenly par for the course.
Everything Freezes takes the characters of Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale and propels them into new lives. King Leontes and Queen Hermione find their lives rent asunder by jealousy. But when an unexplained miracle seems to set things right, the royal family is left not with closure, but a mountain of new questions. Dragged into the fray is their best friend Polixenes, along with the children of both families, who seem far better suited to life in a magic world. Blows are dealt, lives are lost, and the rules of reality bend and break in this off-beat and moving comedy about what family means in the face of the unknown.
About the Ticket Supplier: Sideshow Theatre Company NFP
“Familiar Stories. Unorthodox Methods. Perpetually Curious.”
Sideshow Theatre Company was founded in 2007 in Chicago, Illinois by three graduates of the University of Virginia and is an Illinois non-profit organization tax exempt under IRS code 501©(3). Our first show, Dante Dies!! (and then things get weird) was originally mentioned jokingly as the strangest imaginable subject matter for a one-person show. But when the laughter died down, an intense curiosity remained, as well as one defining question: “What if?” From that question a show, a company, and a mission were born.
Examining familiar stories in adventurous and engaging ways, Sideshow Theatre will spare no energy in mining the classic stories, genres, memories and archetypes of the world we live in, providing our audience with a communal experience of exploration. Dante was first on the chopping block, but everything else in the world can officially consider itself On Notice.
