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.

Lady M. is a retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth with the emphasis on Lady Macbeth. Everything in this play is from Shakespeare's text but has been reordered/reworked to focus on Lady Macbeth.
This adaptation neither served the story of Macbeth nor was it strong enough to be a totally new story of Lady Macbeth. I found the reordering of the text a bit confusing at times. Also, I didn't think the text was handled appropriately by the fairly young cast (youngest Lady Macbeth I've ever seen). I missed the rhythm of folio most notably absent from "Double double toil and trouble".
There were things that I LOVED about this production. The physicality of all of the actors was great. The lighting was beautiful and made some amazing pictures. I really enjoyed how basic the costumes were, and the use of mime for most of the props was a really interesting choice.
If Shakespeare's text is less important to you than other aspects of a production, you'll probably really, really enjoy Lady M. For me, the language lacked passion.
