Les Misérables Presented by Cardinal Music Productions
September 28, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - September 30, 2018 @ 4:30 pm
Cardinal Music Productions presents Les Misérables, the world’s longest running multi-award-winning musical, in the Green Room Theatre at E.J. Lajeunesse on September 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, & 30, 2018.
Les Misérables is a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo’s novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985.
The Tony-nominated 2014 Broadway revival, Les Misérables School Edition, is set in nineteenth century France. Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter.
Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.
