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 actors were excellent, especially Karin Aldrich as Lady Macbeth and Evan Buliung as MacDuff. Ben Carlson needs some time to warm up as Macbeth and he'll do so over the run. All in all though, the director seemed too focused on the look of the play (fog, gun shots, blood, and oy ve the video) and not the emotional throughline or just the text. She spent too much time in trying to make this like a movie rather than focus on telling the story. It's Shakespeare - trust him! Jeez. Actors made up for that though. Didn't blow me away, but still worth seeing.
After his award-winning 2006 CST debut as Hamlet, acclaimed Canadian classical actor Ben Carlson returns to CST’s stage as Macbeth, joined by celebrated Chicago actress Karen Aldridge as Lady Macbeth. This powerful pair leads a cast of 30 in Artistic Director Barbara Gaines’ long-awaited first production of Macbeth, Shakespeare’s richly poetic drama of a marriage besieged by a relentless desire for power.
