A musical that has dominated the global theater scene since its West End debut in 1985! Its story of heartbreak and hope has been seen by over 70 million people worldwide, but why is this famous musical still so loved over thirty years on?
Adapted by Victor Hugo's mammoth novel (made up of five volumes and 1,900 pages!) Les Miserables is famous for its quite heart wrenching, in some parts (almost all of it), and hopeful plots and sub-plots. From the tragic story of Fantine to the magical story of Marius and Cosette, Les Miserables has plenty to sink your teeth into. Also, did we mention that it's set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution?!
Written by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil (and adapted by Herbert Kretzmer), Les Miserables features some of the most famous pieces of music in the world. From the momentous, I Dreamed A Dream, to the spine-tingling One Day More, Les Miserables' music is played across the globe. From Orchestra's to your living room karaoke everyone knows the music from Les Mis!
From the intricate costumes to the staging Les Miserables has proven time and time again that it's worth every penny! One of the show's biggest draws is that epic Barricade and even though the original '80s staging has been ditched the musical hasn't lost any of its magic.
Whether you're a die-hard fan or new to the musical, Les Miserables has everything you could possibly wish for a night out at the theater! Don't miss your chance to see Les Miserables in your town as the great musical heads out on another North American tour.
