Grand and uplifting, Les Miserables 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 won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was adapted into an Oscar-winning film. Drury Lane kicks off its 30th anniversary season with this sweeping tale of romance, passion, suspense and redemption set against the stormy backdrop of the French Revolution. You'll be immersed in the tale of ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption while trying to outrun the determined police inspector Javert, and the innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette for the revolutionary and student, Marius. It's a celebration of the human 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.

I gladly gave it three stars. We really liked the production. We had great weather and enjoyed a picnic on the grounds beforehand. A loaf of bread, a jug of sparkling grape juice, and "thou". The set was enhanced by the trees and fireflies. The costumes, music, lighting, and script were excellent. My professional sound man husband noticed that the microphones could have been improved by moving them just slightly, but it was not noticeable. There was a wardrobe malfunction that could have been avoided, but it didn't seem to disturb the children attending. All in all, it was a great experience. My husband is still talking about it.
Robin Hood: A Fanciful Historie of That Most Notable & Famous Outlaw Robyn Hood is a good old-fashioned romp through the life and times of Robin Hood, written in the Elizabethan style of the Bard. Young and old alike will thrill to this play full of action, romance, heroes, villains, and fun that answers the question: What if Shakespeare had written a play about the legendary bandit Robin Hood?
