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.

I felt the play was deeply moving - the stage was bare as I felt the play deemed necessary. It was very moving and the actors were excellent. I thought the second half dragged a bit - overall I think The Lost Boys of Sudan is worth seeing. The Zig Zag restaurant right across the street was fabulous, food was delicious and served nicely. BYOB - used valet parking as the weather was bad - A good time was had by all.
Three boys meet in the worst way: fleeing the horrors of war. As they team up on a perilous journey to a refugee camp, they exchange heroic survival stories, songs and even laughter. Thus begins an extraordinary journey that eventually takes the boys of the Dinka tribe to, of all places—Fargo, North Dakota—where drought, crocodiles and guerrillas are replaced with malls, video games, and Skittles. This play is written by Lonnie Carter, the author of recent VGT hits The Romance of Magno Rubio and Wheatley.
