Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables 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 has won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was adapted into an Oscar-winning film. San Diego's Lamb's Players present an intimate and powerful production of this sweeping romance with an all-star cast and stunning orchestra. You'll be immersed in the tale of ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption while trying to outrun determined police inspector Javert, and the innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette for the revolutionary student Marius. It's a celebration of the 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.

Go see this one! It is face-paced, fun... edgy and entertaining.... filled with clever dialogue. I can see this play going on to New York. My only two recommendations would be to "lose" the bathroom scene... too gross and not funny. Make better use of the big screens, which were a distraction with nothing happening on them. This was an early page to the stage performance.... so I would love to see it again as more multi-media is implemented. ☆☆☆ Yvonne ☆☆☆

After stewing for 70 years in political disgrace (and presumed death), Herbert Hoover takes the stage in an interactive, rock-infused concert, to reclaim his legacy and save America in the process. Elvis’ classic ‘68 Comeback Special serves as inspiration for Hoover’s rock n’ roll resurrection. This time around he’s going to successfully drag us out of our economic Waterloo, come hell or high water. Award winning company Les Freres Corbusier celebrates the checkered legacy of one of our most vilified presidents in this hilarious new concert performance piece.
