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.

Quotes & Highlights
Visit playwright Scott T. Barsotti’s website.
Working-class Pittsburgh parents Guy and Pam McMeekin are recovering from a car wreck which left Guy’s hands, and Pam’s legs, in casts. Stuck at home since the event, they’ve started to drive each other up the wall (especially since Guy has taken to waxing philosophic about life, and of course, football.). What would normally be an uneventful Sunday watching the Steelers takes an unexpected turn when the McMeekin’s seventeen-year-old daughter Carla comes home from an out-of-control party and tells her parents she thinks she has done something bad…something very bad. What follows includes a football, an interrogation, a taser, a hammer, a lot of duct tape, and a hilarious family of characters sorting out the truth the best way they know how. What transpires is a laugh-out-loud dark comedy with a strong Pittsburgh flavor.
McMeekin Finds Out is the first show of the first full season presented by Route 66 Theatre Co., a Chicago-based theatre company that chooses plays and musicals rooted in the stories of Americana but with a “Chicago Style”: frank in their execution and bold in their conception.
