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.

Great musical with a very enjoyable performance. Some of the signing left me desiring for a little better sound, but hey, the kids did very well! Despite a few small mishaps, I really really had a good time and loved the acting and music.
The “disarmingly beautiful” (The New York Times) music of Rufus Wainwright takes center stage as A.C.T.’s Young Conservatory continues its exploration of modern composers in this theatrical tribute to the acclaimed singer-songwriter.
Shamed by his father’s arrest during the Panic of 1893, young New York socialite Josiah Matliff flees to Chicago. As he traverses the American railways, he meets other teenage runaways from the fringes of society who are escaping their own pasts. Wainwright’s haunting melodies and emotionally charged lyrics shape Beautiful Child into an original and unforgettable story of independence and awakening.
