Les Miserables, the musical event of a lifetime, is being presented live at Beef and Boards Dinner Theater. We saw this wonderful show on Saturday night and I'm highly recommending it. And, the audience must agree with me as the cast received a standing ovation at the end of this dramatic production. Four Broadway performers are featured in the cast of this nine-time Tony Award winning musical, Les Miserables, at Beef and Boards. This epic musical is on stage now through Nov. 24, 2013.
Set in France and based on the novel by Victor Hugo, this compelling story centers on Jean Valjean, who is released from a 19 year prison sentence he received for stealing a loaf of bread. Although freed, he remains an outcast until he breaks his parole and assumes a different identity. Embarking on a new life, Valjean becomes a respectable citizen and is elected mayor before he agrees to raise the child of a dying woman who had worked in his factory. Javert, an officer obsessed with justice who has pursued Baljean since he broke parole, discovers his changed identity and attempts to capture the former convict. Valjean flees with young Cosette and becomes a father to her, but even he can't protect her heart from being stolen by a young and passionate revolutionary as the French civil unrest builds.
There are 59 performances of Les Miserables scheduled in the intimate setting of Beef and Boards Dinner Theater. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward's delicious dinner buffet.
