Phoenix Theatre is one of only a few professional regional theatres in the country chosen to produce this powerful musical and is the largest production the theatre has ever undertaken. It is also the highest grossing show in the theatre's 88-year history. More than 10,000 have been sold.
Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel, Les Misérables is a multiple Tony Award-winning musical and the third longest running musical ever to run on Broadway. Hugo's book of romance, passion, suspense and humanity was founded largely on historical facts, incidents lifted from his life, and characters he met. Les Miserables is set in 19th century France when character Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing on the outside but mistrust, mistreatment and an obsessed police inspector, Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways.
