Les Miserables: Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg's wildly popular musical Les Miserables returns to South Florida for an eleven-night run at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). This production features Fort Lauderdale native Catherine Hickland, star of the soap opera The City, as Fantine. (A little creepy trivia on Hickland: She was once married to David Hasselhoff, who played Michael Knight on the Eighties television series Knight Rider. Her current husband is an actor named Michael Knight, who plays Tad on the soap All My Children.) Performances run Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and March 16 at 7:30 p.m., with 2:00 p.m. matinees on March 15, 16, 19, and March 22. Tickets range from $27 to $57. Call 954-462-0222. (GC)

Flagler St.). Soprano Elizabeth Futral stars in the title role as a young woman who goes mad when she is tricked by her family into marrying a man she does not love; the scene in which Lucia loses her sanity is one of the most famous in opera history (performed in Italian with projected English translations). Tickets range from $18 to $100. Performances continue March 15, 18, and 21 at 8:00 p.m. and March 23 at 2:00 p.m. Call 854-7890. (GC)
