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.

Loved my first experience in this space. Great, not often heard Sondheim piece performed well by the leads and a powerhouse chorus. Quirky story had us squirming; loved it. I'd go again because I liked it and to see how it's gelled since I saw it early in the run.
A celebrated ensemble and design team bring this rhapsodic tour de force about the yearnings and redemptive power of love to the intimate theater Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare. Don’t miss this beautiful and moving musical, featuring Ana Gasteyer (Wicked, Saturday Night Live, Threepenny Opera) as Fosca, Adam Brazier (The Woman in White, Into the Woods) as Giorgio, and Kathy Voytko (Phantom of the Opera, Nine) as Clara
