Melody Lane Theatre opening 2021-22 season with Young Adult musical Les Miserables


Melody Lane Theatre is opening its 2021-2022 season with the Young Adult Musical Les Miserables. Seen by more than 70 million people and performed in over 40 countries and 22 languages, Les Mis brings Victor Hugo’s revolutionary novel blazingly to life. With a lush, swelling score that features such famed songs as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own” and “Bring Him Home,” Les Miserables is one of the world’s most iconic and longest-running musicals.

Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict who spends a lifetime seeking redemption. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and the aftermath of the French Revolution, this timeless story of intertwined destinies reveals the power of compassion and the quiet evil of indifference to human suffering. As Valjean’s quest for a new life carries him into Paris and to the barricades of the Student Revolution, he is hunted by Inspector Javert and the ghosts of his past. Amidst a battle for the soul of Paris, he discovers the true meaning of love and salvation.

Harvey Evans (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, Hunchback of Notre Dame, To Kill a Mockingbird) stars as Jean Valjean, with Theo Rosso (Footloose, Rock of Ages) playing his nemesis, Javert. Katae Boswell is Fantine, Evangeline Nudi plays Young Cosette and River Reed (Matilda) appears in the role of Gavroche.

The show opens Friday, October 8. Tickets go on sale this weekend, so start making your plans. There is limited seating and only four performances, so you’ll want to act fast to reserve your spots.
