About the Show

A new musical based on the novel by Victor Hugo.

Story: Jean Valjean, an ex-con, has transformed himself to become mayor and the owner of a factory. But when he is moved to help one of his former workers, Fantine, Valjean's past is brought to light, and he is forced to abandon everything to run from Javert, the chief of police, dead set on bringing him to justice. Nine years later, Cosette, Fantine's child, has been raised by Valjean and has fallen in love with Marius, a fighter in the French revolution. With Javert on the hunt and a revolution tearing the city apart, everyone is forced to question what they're willing to sacrifice in pursuit of love and justice.
