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.

Join the world’s most famous wanderer, Peer Gynt, as he dreams, charms and swindles his way through life in an exhilarating quest for fame and fortune.
Experimental director David Schweizer brings this epic fantasy to life with only five actors. These agile, hilarious and versatile performers transform themselves from cowboys to button-molders, from the Egyptian Sphinx to a three-headed troll on a stage full of inventive surprises.
Satisfy your wanderlust in this wild, funny and picaresque journey.
