Les Misérables is an epic production which takes audiences on an odyssey spanning the decades around the turn of the 19th century in France. Jean Valjean is a former convict who struggles to return to society and is then caught stealing, leading to a cat-and-mouse fight to survive as he is tracked by the ruthless Inspector Javert. This is a show not to be missed, especially with its amazing new cast!
