If you haven't had your fill of "Les Miserables" on stage or as a Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated film, then a brand-new critically acclaimed production of the multiple Tony Award-winning show is in store for you later this month in Miami.
Cameron Mackintosh created this new production for the show's 25th Anniversary. It features new costumes, new direction, and, most strikingly, a new set, which features paintings reminiscent of Victor Hugo. Remaining in place, of course, are the original musical numbers which have won for Les Miserables a treasured place in musical theater.
Since the production began its international tour in Cardiff, Wales in 2009, it's won critical acclaim. The show closed in 2010, but since then, versions of the 25th Anniversary production have been staged abroad and in the U.S as well, where critics have raved.
The New York Times called this production, "an unquestionably spectacular production from start to finish," and The London Times hailed it as "a five star hit, astonishingly powerful." Other reviewers said the show had "improved with age," and that it "actually exceeds the original."
Miami audiences will have the opportunity to judge for themselves when the production opens on Tuesday, Feb. 26 for a six-day engagement.
Tickets start at $26.
