Hailed as "the best musical of this century" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and "the funniest musical of all time" by Entertainment Weekly, The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- in its first year on Broadway. Now the national touring production is back at the Pantages for a second round of hilarity. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, this musical comedy is a show that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has called "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry." Learn More
The injustices of 19th Century France is the setting for the world’s longest running and best loved musical. Based on Victor Hugo’s imortal novel, theater legends Alain Boubel and Claude Michel Schonberg brought Les Misérables to the stage in 1985. It would tour for the next 27 years. On Saturday, June 1, 2013 the High Street Arts Center will be one of the first local theater companies in the world to present this epic production.
Often mistaken for the story of the French Revolution, Les Misérables is actually set around the little known Student Revolution that took place 40 later. A generation has grown up since the overthrow of King Louis XVI and the fall of the Bastille but little has improved.

Set to this backdrop is the story of Jean Valjean who has broken parole after 18 years imprisonment for stealing a loaf of bread. Determined to get his man the pious Inspector Javert relentlessly pursues Valjean, vowing he must “learn the lesson of the law.” Weaved throughout this chase are the many enduring and deeply tragic characters, each of whom faces the musical’s central haunting question, “Who am I?”
