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.

Like Pinter’s “Betrayal,” or Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along,” the narrative of Philip Dawkins’ “the Homosexuals” was also implemented the ‘reverse chronology’ technique (simply brilliant!) with first scene taking place in 2010 (present) and final scene in 2000 (past); 10 years of make-up and break-up among a group of gay friends. As an FOB cutie Evan, Patrick Andrews managed this demanding core character very well (he was on stage throughout; with a slight break at last scene). As an inner city school teacher (and most gay men’s token beard), Elizabeth Ledo stole the show. She was genuinely funny. Every gesture or comment she made ignited laughter. The most sympathetic would be ‘Michael’ and Stephen Cone delivered a heartbreaking performance. It’s been eleven years since I saw Benjamin Sprunger (in Pasadena Playhouse’s “Do I Hear A Waltz”); he still looks handsome and charming. His portrayal of hunky British Mark was truly titillating.
Such a remarkable play being presented in the Pride month -- I give it high praise among the others; “Unnatural Acts” (in New York), “Tales of the City” (in San Francisco), and Bash’d: A Gay Rap Opera (in Los Angeles).
ps, I totally agree that Susan Stroman’s “Contact” is NOT a musical!
