Get ready to dream the dream, and don’t forget to bring the hankies. Les Misérables arrives in Miami during a thunderous rebirth that would make Victor Hugo beam with pride.
Set in 19th-century France, Hugo’s powerful tale follows the stories of student revolutionaries, prostitutes, factory workers, a jailbird, and star-crossed lovers as they struggle for redemption and revolution. Presented by Cameron Mackintosh, this brand-new 25th-anniversary production of Boublil & Schönberg’s legendary musical includes new staging and reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Hugo himself. It’s an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit that also includes some of theater history’s most unforgettable songs.
No, you won’t see Anne Hathaway, but you will see the story as it was meant to be performed — on a real, live stage.
