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.

The performers were very engaging! Each cast member sang right to members of the audience and danced into or in front of our seating section at least once. The tunes were hummable and the songs were upbeat. Our kids ranged in age from 3 to 12 and they all were comfortable with the action on stage. Afterward they all crowded around the cast members to get all signatures on their keepsake programs. Wonderful memories!
Quotes & Highlights
“It’s a treat that will charm audiences 6 to 60.” —Chicago Sun-Times
After-school detention is transformed into an adventure when a teacher shows six students the power of a good fable. Aesop’s stories, which have engaged readers of all ages for thousands of years, get a modern twist with high-spirited songs and lovable characters.
This hour-long production is most enjoyed by ages 6 and up.
