Ready the Barricades! Les Misérables Opens in Boston

March 13th, 2012 | By Staff

The national tour of Les Misérables begins performances in Boston on March 13. The musical will play the Boston Opera House through April 1.

The story of Les Misérables begins in 1815 as Jean Valjean, a man condemned to 19 years of hard labor for stealing a loaf of bread, finds only hatred and suspicion when he is released on parole and breaks free yearning for a new life. This story of love, courage and redemption is now being told with a newly imagined production featuring new sets and costumes. The sweeping Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil score contains the signature numbers “I Dreamed a Dream” and “On My Own.”

This international hit stars Broadway vets J. Mark McVey as Jean Valjean, Andrew Varela as Javert, Julie Benko as Cosette, Max Quinlan as Marius and Betsy Morgan as Fantine.

Don’t wait one day more to get your tickets for Les Misérables.
