Show Summary - Les Miserables
Based on Victor Hugo’s renowned novel of the same name, Les Misérables is a celebrated musical masterpiece that is now enjoying its second revival on Broadway.
Les Misérables depicts the story of the volatile and quickly changing landscape of post revolutionary France. Jean Valjean is one of Les Misérables, or Miserable or Wretched Ones, who struggles to redeem himself after life as a convict. The novel is considered one of the greatest works of its time.
With lyrics by, Jean-Marc Natel, and Herbert Kretzmer, and score and book by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil, this musical had its beginnings as a concept album debuted in Paris in 1980. Legendary producer Cameron Mackintosh spent two years reworking and improving and the phenomena of Les Mis that you see today opened in the West End of London in 1985.
Les Miserables moved to Broadway in 1987 with a budget of over $4.5 million dollars. When it closed on Broadway in 1993, only Cats had a longer Broadway run. The show has been received like no other around the world because of its universal appeal of the story of human struggle and societal change. The show has been translated into 21 languages including four versions of Spanish and two versions of Dutch. This current revival returned to Broadway in 2014.

What Is LES MISERABLES Like? Taking place in 19th century France, the show features a large cast and a beautiful, memorable score including such songs as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “At the End of the Day,” “Who Am I?”, “Master of the House,” “Castle on a Cloud,” and “Bring Him Home.” It is the story of a peasant named Jean Valjean, who is imprisoned for 19 years for having stolen a piece of bread, and his quest for redemption as he relentlessly tries to escape a police inspector named Javert. There are also wonderful comedic elements, mostly through the delightful malicious characters Madame and Monsieur Thénardier, and extremely moving moments, especially during songs sung by the young women Fantine and Cosette. This show is known for its high quality sets, costumes and production values. Audience members actually feel like they have been transported to 19th century France sans the rats and smell.
Is LES MISERABLES Good for Kids? Les Mis contains themes relating to prostitution, violent revolution, and destitution. The show is most suited for children over the age of 10. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted into the theatre.
