Les Misérables – which has been seen by more than 53 million people worldwide, in 38 countries and in 21 different languages, since its opening in London in October 1985 – made its debut on a Broadway stage on March 12, 1987, at the Broadway Theater. This well-acclaimed musical was nominated for twelve Tony Awards in 1987 and won eight of them for Best Musical, Best Featured Actor, Best Featured Actress, Director of a Musical, Book of a Musical, Score, Scenic Design, and Lighting Design.
From the 1,752-seat Broadway Theater, where it debuted on Broadway, Les Misérables was moved to the smaller 1,412-seat Imperial Theater on October 17, 1990. With its 6,138th performance on January 25, 2002, Les Misérables became the 2nd longest-running show in the history of Broadway. On May 18, 2003, the curtain finally came down with its 6,680th performance on Broadway.
This is the pedigree of the musical that has made its reappearance on Broadway, albeit for a short duration. Les Misérables, based on Victor Hugo’s epic novel, has been adapted and directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, with music by Claude-Michel Schonberg. It is a story based on the turbulent days of the revolution in France.
It is a story, spanning decades, about a policeman – Javert, who relentlessly pursues an escaped convict – Jean Valjean. Valjean, under an assumed name – Monsieur Madeleine, becomes the mayor and promises to bring up the daughter – Cosette – of a dying prostitute – Fantine. Javert suspects that the mayor is actually Valjean, and the Mayor confesses but makes his escape. During the chaos of the revolution, Javert is exposed as a police spy, and on being given a chance to kill him, Valjean lets him go. This changes Javert’s mind toward Valjean.
This is a heart-rending story and a must-see for all. Now that a second chance has come your way, do not let it go by.
