Les Miserables started in London in 1985 and has become one of the most celebrated and acclaimed musicals of this generation. It has been seen around the world by more than 55 million people and has been produced in 40 countries and translated into 21 languages. The show is based off Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel that tells a dynamic story of redemption and revolution in the early 19th century that has gained worldwide appeal. It has won countless awards for both theater and music and to this day is the longest running musical of all time.
The Ahmanson Theatre in downtown Los Angeles will be presenting Cameron Mackintosh’s 25th anniversary of Les Miserables for the next month and half. It started officially on June 14th and will continue to July 31, 2011. The 25th anniversary production will use new backdrops inspired by Victor Hugo paintings. The cast and ensemble will feature some of the most talented and experienced professionals in theatre.
Tickets start at $42 but don’t wait too long because seats will most likely sell fast. The Ahmanson is off of Grand and Temple St and the show starts at 8pm. This is a great opportunity to experience possibly one of the greatest musicals of all time and it will be right here in Los Angeles.
