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 had already rated and reviewed this event. I think the fact that this is my second time going to see it speaks volumes. The show continues to be consistently excellent. Enjoyed it just as much the second time around as I did the first.

A twisted and kooky comedy of the best kind: one with heart. Wonder of the World is a meditation on relationships in all their many forms, Lindsay-Abaire takes one woman’s life crisis, throws her and a cast of one-of-kind characters into a barrel and has them ride on the waterfall’s edge of insanity and self discovery.
