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.

This is a modern day "rock" version of Shakespeare's, "The Two Gentlemen of Verona." Just like the original play, it deals with the foolish behavior of people in love. Friendship and infidelity with conflict between fellow friends and love are all in this updated version. It's done with music, singing, drama, comedy but with a "new twist," in the plot.
The play is at the Bruns Memorial Amphitheatre in Orinda. It's the perfect outdoor theater for Shakespeare type plays. The stage has a great backdrop with lush serene rolling green hills, majestic trees and cows grazing at a distance that looks like little moving specks. A contentment and peacefulness just falls over you, sitting there watching the show.
I beseech you all, to go see the showcase talents of Dan Clegg, Nate Trinrud, Marisa Duchowny, Arwen Anderson, Philip Mills, Elena Wright, Harold Pierce and Adam Yazbeck. Along with the creative/ingenious props and mysterious sensational plot that would have William Shakespeare's applauding "bravo."
