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.

What a great start to our Labor Day weekend! This is a rousing evening that begins the moment you find your seat and are pulled into the imminent labor meeting and a group of people "waiting for lefty." We enjoyed the vignettes and ensemble pieces very much and definitely felt transported into 1935 America. America Blues has presented a play that entertains and informs. Highly recommended.
Waiting for Lefty
by Clifford Odets
Directed by Kimberly Senior
Inspired by the New York taxi strike of 1934 and first staged by the Group Theater in 1935, these powerful vignettes offer a treatise on societal inequities. “We’ve been kicked around so long we’re black and blue from head to toes.” The Los Angeles Times calls Waiting for Lefty “undeniably relevant” and the New York Times hails it as “fiercely dramatic.”
