Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. Woodminster Amphitheater hosts an outdoor 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. Cozy up under a blanket and watch 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," "On My Own," "One day More," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

Play, music and storyline came alive after about the first 15 minutes, which was slow and not very engaging. Needs a "hook" in the beginning with music, singing and dancing to get the audience involved and engaged.
Definitely more enjoyable as the characters and their stories unfolded and the singing and dancing brought the stories alive.
Our party sat in the 4th tier and didn't have any problems seeing the stage or the actors. Not a bad seat in this intimate little theater--it's a gem in downtown Martinez!
A hilarious play with music by Laurence Carr. It’s 1919, and nine seasoned show folks are stuck in Philadelphia. While their current world is the small time circut of split weeks, they keep their hopes alive for the ‘Big Time.’ The players are a cross-section of the last generation of hoofers, comics and ‘novelty acts’ who kept America entertained while Vaudeville was king.
