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.

I am a big Shakespeare fan but I really didn't like the performance. It wasn't what I expected. Being Shakespeare's last play and his farewell to his audience, I expected it to be performed differently. The repeated punning around took away focus of some important scenes. The silliness became too distracting to the true literary sense of his work. I also didn't like the stage setup; it didn't give the illusion of an island. It was too humdrum and dull. It had no imagination. Overall, I found it tediously tasteless, boring, and disappointing.
A shipwreck delivers a party of conspirators and their guests to an island inhabited by a sorcerer, his daughter, and a mélange of characters, of both the magical and half-human sort. It’s payback time for the villains, as the Sorcerer Prospero now has the opportunity for revenge. But things change for all when the sorcerer’s daughter falls for the enemy’s son, and in the final moment, the Bard leaves us “with such stuff as dreams are made on”.
