Les Misérables

Matthew Murphy
Les Misérables
It's been over 150 years since French peasant Jean Valjean was first jailed for stealing a loaf of bread. After the protagonist in Victor Hugo's 1862 novel was brought to the stage nearly 40 years ago, Les Misérables has gone on to become one of the longest-running musicals in the world. And for good reason. While the incredible story of revolution, heartbreak, and sacrifice is set in 19th-century France, it still resonates today, and is backed by an epic score. For those who have seen the play before, this PNC Broadway stop will feature new staging and reimagined scenery.
