Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts presents a brand-new 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. 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," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

Well all I can saw is WOW.... I have been coming to the WCT theater for years and I have never seen a production as good as good as The Curious Savage. I usually don't point out individual performances but I have never seen such an exceptional performance given on that stage as I saw coming from the girl playing Fairy Mae. She lit up the stage and made everyone around her better performers. She was captivating, endearing, and heartfelt. Every move she made and line she said was believable. I noticed in the program that she use to be a professional actress, you could tell she had been trained.
The rest of the cast also did well and the costumes were very fitting for each character. The show was hilarious and touching and the show, all together, was very well executed.
Can't wait to see what else this theater has in the future!

Sort of like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest but much lighter. First act was a bit slow; needed to establish the characters and story. Second act was terrific. Play is comic, dramatic and a little thought provoking too. A must see. WCT rocks!
