Les Misérables Shows What Makes It Such a Valuable Piece of Musical Theatre After 40 Years

Cameron Mackintosh presents the new production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, Les Misérables. It’s direct from an acclaimed two-and-a-half-year return to Broadway and will visit Durham Performing Arts Center!

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his desire for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister's starving child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert.

Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists attempts to overthrow the government at a street barricade. Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

Featuring the thrilling score and beloved songs “I Dreamed A Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars," and many more, this epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. With its glorious new staging and dazzlingly reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, this astonishing new production has left both audiences and critics awestruck.

Les Misérables will play at the Durham Performing Arts Center from Tuesday, March 10th through Sunday the 15th. Tickets start at $39.50 plus fees. Get your tickets now at www.dpacnc.com! For additional information, call (919) 680-2787.
