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.

I didn't know what it would mean to see "news on stage", but this performance (they call it a workshop, but it was production quality) was incredible. Two one act plays were written based on 2 investigative reports (I looked them up on Tides' website after the show - the stories were published in the past 18 months), but it is not just a recreation of events. Each took artistic license while staying true to the original report. Loved seeing exposed tech & the "story wall" on stage. Great ensemble & the sound design was fantastic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I was there on opening along with Phil Bronstein (formerly of the Chronicle). Might go back for the talkback the 2nd weekend Saturday night.
