Why see Les Miserables?

THE SPECTACULAR HIT RETURNS!

Cameron Mackintosh's epic musical is back! Based on Victor Hugo's novel, this sweeping epic is one of the most popular musicals in history, a tale of love and revolution that draws audiences in time and time again. Its classic score, written by Herbert Kretzmer and Claude-Michel Schonberg, includes the timeless 'I Dreamed A Dream', 'One Day More' and 'Do You Hear the People Sing'.

Nominated for three Tony Awards, this latest Broadway production is a more than worthy chapter in Les Miserables' long history. It debuted at the Imperial Theatre in 2014 and ran for two years, drawing huge acclaim for its stripped down storytelling, which jettisons some of the bloat attached to previous productions, and the atmospheric video projections that lend the show a hugely cinematic backdrop.

WHAT IS LES MISERABLES ABOUT?

Two years after the Revolution of 1830, France is on the brink of violence once again. Dismayed that one king has been replaced by another, a group of rebels are plotting to overthrow the monarchy and lay claim to the throne for the common people.

Against this backdrop of simmering rebellion, we follow the story of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict who manages to build a new life for himself and his adopted daughter Cosette. Yet his new found happiness cannot last for long, because the unrelenting police inspector Javert, who has been hunting Valjean for two decades, is close on his tail. As Valjean's past finally catches up with him, all of the characters are swept up in the chaos that breaks out on Paris 'streets, in an epic story of thwarted love, forgiveness and the enduring strength of the human spirit.

Reviews

Critic's review

So go. Be transported. Get caught up in the tidal wave of emotion. Cry if you are inclined. Hum the music for days on end. And then, if you love that feeling, go again when it comes back. Which, eventually, it will.

Just wonderful

I cannot believe the criticism of this remarkable production. We left the theater completely drained emotionally. The performers put their hearts into every word, every action. The seats were fine, except I always manage to have a tall person in front of me. ( I'm 4'10). We are from Pennsylvania and the theater was truly beautiful, the staff helpful and friendly. I would go again if our vacation wasn't ending soon. Valjean, Javert, such dynamics between the two. Little gavroche, powerful. Eponine displayed such feeling.. Poor reviews for this play are hard to fathom. Credit should be given to performers who have brought to life the greatest literature ever written. ... Read more

10 out of 5 stars

Excellent and beyond. Flawless. From the sound, to the lighting to the orchestra to the cast everything was exceptional and just seemed to complement each other from beginning to end. This was my second time seeing les mis. The first 30 years ago in Montreal. It was amazing back then but outdid itself today! Thank you for all your hard work everyone involved and bringing us into your world and the life experience the characters lived. ... Read more

Unbelievably Moving. Exceed expectations in every way.

This production was by far one of the best productions I have ever seen. From the acting to the stage setting to the vocals to the humor it was engrossing in every possible way. I was quite honestly very sad when it was over. I can't think of a single criticism of this show. I'd go back again in a heartbeat to watch it all over again. We bought our tickets last second, and paid handsomely for them. I feel like I got a bargain after watching the show. I'd pay double for that experience again. ... Read more
