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.

David Mamet is a prolific writer of plays about the darker side of the American experience, where profound truths emerge from what at first seem the most mundane conversations. His best known work includes Duck Variations (1972), Sexual Perversity in Chicago (1975), American Buffalo (1975), Glengarry Glen Ross (1984), and Speed-the-Plow (1988). His play Race, about race and ethnicity, opened in New York in late 2009 and was the first new play to recoup its investment in the 2009-2010 Broadway season. Mamet also has made a name for himself as a Hollywood screenwriter. Among his films are House of Games, The Untouchables, Hoffa, and Wag the Dog, for which he was co-winner of the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay.
