It never gets old, just better and better.
This amazing and moving musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg is based on Victor Hugo’s famous novel of the revolutionary change in France during the 18th century. It all begins in 1815 when Jean Valjean (played by Nick Cartill) is condemned to 19 years of hard labor for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his family. Eventually Valjean begins a new life with difficulties. Audiences witness the overwhelming obstacles he must endure.
