The Big Apple has some big productions coming on as the award-winning musical Les Miserables drops eight shows on the New York lawns on March 12 to 17 in Sheas Performing Arts Center, Buffalo, New York. Prepare for tear-jerking and monumental scenes as Les Miserables delivers the means for a theatrical experience for Broadway fans to feel.

The show, running for 2 hours and 50 minutes, will feature Victor Hugo’s historical novel, telling the tale of the mishaps of the main protagonist, Jean Valjean, and how he fought through these hardships. Set in 19th century France, the story will be told as a musical romance as the touch of the producer Cameron Mackintosh provides more emotions and charm to the almost perfect musical that will surely be loved by the Broadway fans. With the performances of the greatest Les Miserables songs I Dreamed a Dream, One Day More, and Do You Hear People Sing, a night of love, sorrow, despair, and resolve will be all served as Les Miserables put the fans on hold with the greatest story ever told.

The central character of the story, Prisoner 24601, Jean Valjean, navigates his life in the post-revolutionary era of 19th-century France. The narrative unfolds after Valjean’s release from a nineteen-year prison sentence for bread theft, an event that occurred much earlier than this current period we are exploring. As circumstances take a turn towards adversity, Bishop Myriel extends crucial assistance to Valjean, thus illuminating their path forward in the story. Consequently, through sheer determination and resilience on both parts, notably with Myriel’s persistent guidance, Jean stands firm against these challenges, propelling him towards self-improvement where indeed he succeeds eventually. The smooth progression abruptly shifts into a dramatic gloom as Jean Valjean intersects with key figures that will chart his future course: Fantine – the devoted mother; Marius – the fervent revolutionary; and Inspector Javert– the primary antagonist. This masterful creation weaves together tragedy and redemption, resonating with themes of love and forgiveness. The character narratives unfurl via a compelling musical performance, catapulting it to status as one of history’s most enduringly classic theater productions.
