Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts presents a brand-new production of this tale of passion and revolution in 19th-century France, which won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was made into an Oscar-nominated film. Ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption and the young, innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette and the student Marius are set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution. It's a celebration of the human struggle for love, 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.

We sat in the 2nd row and thoroughly enjoyed this musical/play. The players use the aisles to enter the stage at times so sit in the center if possible. It was cute and funny and the lead singers were very good. You should definitely see this play.
The Maverick Theater brings the world premiere of Zombie Love: The Musical to the stage, adapted from the award-winning short film Zombie Love by Yfka Van Bercklaer and Darren Herczeg.
Writer/director Erik Furuheim has been a fan of zombie-themed films for most of his life. He first saw Zombie Love in 2009 and immediately contacted the creator, Yfka van Bercklaer, to secure rights for a stage adaptation. He was certain the film would translate well onto the stage, and he knew The Maverick Theater was the perfect home for the venture.
“After being a part of Night of the Living Dead at the Maverick for three years and seeing the audience’s overwhelming response to zombies on stage, I knew this would be a great addition to our Halloween lineup,” said Furuheim. “I had to make it happen. A year later — here we are.”
This fresh, new adaptation for the stage makes use of the film's original lyrics, but includes a completely re-envisioned score, composed by music director Benjamin Sagan.
