The world's most beloved musical soared to the stage at the famed Hollywood Bowl in an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime, adaptation, directed by Richard Jay-Alexander. This unique production came about by a very special agreement that The Hollywood Bowl has made with Music Theatre International and Cameron Mackintosh, the musical world's most successful Producer. It boasts an all star cast featuring Broadway's J. Mark McVey as "Jean Valjean"; Brian Stokes Mitchell as "Javert"; John Lloyd Young as "Marius", Lea Michele as "Eponine", Melora Hardin as "Fantine", Michael McCormick as "Thenardier", Tom Lowe as "Enjolras", Michele Maika as "Cosette" and Ruth Williamson as "Madame Thenardier"
Performing in the company are Barbara Chiofalo, Natalie Daradich, Travis Davidson, Joshua Finkel, Stephen Full, Julie Garnye, Joel Gelman, Sue Goodman, Daniel Guzman, Wayne Hu, Jennifer Naimo, Steve Mazurek, Lesley McKinnel, Weston Wells Olson, Ethan Le Phong, Patrick Reese, Eddy Rioseco, Tristan Rumery, Allyson Tucker, and Darlene Williams along with students Sergio Pasquarielo, Frankie Kane Kraft, Anton M. Garsola, Andrew Karl and Christopher Karl.
The concert celebrates the timeless tale of passion and redemption and the glorious Claude-Michel Schonberg / Alain Boublil score of Les Miserables as it has never seen or heard it before and undoubtedly never will again. This concert adaptation of the eight-time Tony Award-winning musical features the 55 member Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conducted by Kevin Stites. The production also features local high school students, adding a dash of home-grown talent. During this one-of-a-kind production, audiences will be transported to post-Revolutionary France while basking in the beautiful California night.
