FRENCH CLAS­SIC

LES MIS IN TOWN

Mandurah Coastal Times - - REVUE ENTERTAINMENT -

ONE of the world’s most iconic and long­est run­ning mu­si­cals, Les Mis­er­ables tells the story of Jean Val­jean, a for­mer convict who spent a life­time seek­ing re­demp­tion.

Set against the back­drop of 19th cen­tury France and the aftermath of the French Rev­o­lu­tion, the time­less story of in­ter­twined des­tinies re­veals the power of com­pas­sion and the quiet evil of in­dif­fer­ence to hu­man suf­fer­ing.

As Val­jean’s quest for a new life car­ries him into Paris and to the bar­ri­cades of the Stu­dent Rev­o­lu­tion, he is hunted by In­spec­tor Javert and the ghosts of his past.

Per­formed in more than 40 coun­tries and 22 lan­guages and with a lush score that fea­tures such songs as I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own and Bring Him Home, Les Mis­er­ables is di­rected by Karen Fran­cis and brings to life Vic­tor Hugo’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary novel.

Les Mis­er­ables is at Man­durah Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre on Thurs­day, Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day, Septem­ber 21, 22, 23 and 24.
