Before it hit the screen, it hit the stage, and now Les Misérables is coming to Westerville. Based on the 19th-century French novel by Victor Hugo, “the world’s longest running musical,” follows the ex-convict Jean Valjean in his journey of redemption. As the first university-produced performance in Ohio of the full score, this production of 1987 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical features an elaborate plot and beautiful music sure to delight audience members, whether they are seeing it for their 1st or 40th time.

Cucumber sandwiches and petticoats set the environment for this classic British farce on the aristocracy, which has become a standard of the English and American theatres. Though set at the turn of the 20th century, this comedy has stood the test of time thanks to the Picture of Dorian Gray author’s sharp commentary on upper-class society. Having most recently been revived on Broadway in 2011, audiences are sure to have an earnestly good time.
