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.

A wonderful evening of Shakespeare. Well acted and staged. It is a complicated tragic story that unfortunately is too true in many ways. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would recommend it to all! It was also a nice night for an outdoor theater. There isn't a bad seat in the house!
The Tragedie of King Lear
Starring Dennis Krausnick
A test of love is only the beginning of one old man's journey on the path to Hell. Considered by many to be William Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, Lear is about repercussions of pride and vanity that eventually lead to the fatal destruction of both the great king and all who are of real importance to him. Lear is a metaphorical epic—a story of violence, lust, betrayal, madness, and the predatory side of human nature.
Directed by Thomas Bradac
