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.

Good leads with a bit of uneven acting amongst the other players. If you love Tennessee Williams (as I do), you can get over this. I am sure the others will improve as the play runs. There's quite a lot of the non-lead actors only listening to the leads (I feel for them), and they were quite good at this, by that I mean they were not distracting you from the speaking actors. Nice intimate theater with comfortable seating.
One of Tennessee Williams’ finest and most famous plays, Suddenly Last Summer is a psychological gothic drama set on a summer evening in the garden district of New Orleans in the late 1930s.
The poet Sebastian Venable, is dead. His traveling companion and cousin, Catherine Holly (Larissa Archer), believes she has witnessed “something unspeakable.” Sebastian’s mother (Joyce Henderson) secures the support of Dr. Cukrowicz (Mark Bird) from the State Psychiatric Hospital in an attempt to “preserve the memory and reputation of her son.” As an investigation into the mysterious death of her son unfolds, Mrs. Venable goes to extraordinary lengths to stop Catherine from telling her version of the events of the previous summer.
The ATSF production is directed by Christian Phillips, designed by James Baldock and Biz Duncan and features a veteran cast that includes Larissa Archer, Mark Bird, Delinda Dane, Martha Foster, Joyce Henderson, Joe Napoli and Carol Robinson.
