Why Watch Les Misérables

The musical first came to London in 1985, and since then, it has taken the stage by storm. Les Misérables has run uninterrupted for a proud total of thirty-three years, and shows no signs of taking a break. It stays true to its theme that revolves around the romantic literary movement in the mid and late 19th century in Europe. With its big, belting moments, this drama follows several characters whose lives are intertwined, making for a spellbinding musical that you won’t be able to forget.

The Story

Les Misérables follows the story of Jean Valjean, a peasant convicted for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s famished kid. After 19 years in prison, Valjean decides to live his life anew. A bishop deeply inspires him and sets him on the road to redemption. Valjean must now elude a police inspector named Javert who is intent on bringing him to justice. He meets many interesting characters along the way, and all of them are unexpectedly swept into the fray of a gruesome revolution that shakes the very foundations of France. The tale of Valjean’s continuous struggles and his blooming romance with a woman named Cosette is as fresh as the day Victor Hugo first wrote it. The cast does an incredible job of making sure the audience is constantly immersed in the world that this musical conjures.
