This intimate new production of the Les Miserables, directed by Ray Yucis, will play The Civil War Drill Hall Theatre in Leonia, NJ from July 16-August 3rd. This production will mark Summerstage's 15th season under Executive Producer Dr. Frank Livelli. Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister's child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
