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.

Insightful writing performed by learned actors. Surprisingly enjoyable. There's SOME smoking onstage during the play that was a bit unpleasant and I wished I had known about but other than that, REALLY FUN. The 16 and 15 yr olds I went with enjoyed it as well.......
