A celebration of life, masked by the brutal but honest tragedies of disappointment, hopelessness and misery, this is what makes ‘Les Miserables’ transcendent beyond its years, beyond technological advancements and innovations, and beyond changing trends and preferences, for it solidifies the universal truth that humans are a resilient species, capable of surviving and triumphing in spite every turmoil and morale-defeating obstacle. ‘Les Mis’ gives all of us – fans of musical theatre or not – a reason to rejoice, for dreams make us alive, and the fulfillment of these, even when the odds are against us – make us thrive.
This timeless and compelling theatrical masterpiece from Boublil and Schonberg celebrates its 25th year anniversary through a revitalized production that has gotten fans craving for more and has gotten critics raving continuously. Thanks to a re-imagined set design inspired by Victor Hugo’s paintings, a story that continues to pierce our hearts and minds with its substance and candor, and anthem-like songs like ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ and ‘On My Own’ that celebrate the enduring power of the human spirit, The New York Times hails ‘Les Mis’ as “an unquestionably spectacular production from start to finish”, and across the Atlantic, the stiff upper lip critics from The London Times give this revival a perfect rating, even calling it “astonishingly powerful”.
Fans in Cincinnati need not go to Broadway just to experience this powerful and inspiring drama, for ‘Les Miserables’ comes to the Aronoff Center’s Procter & Gamble Hall, from May 8 to 13, 2012 only. The performance running time is 2 hours 50 minutes with 1 intermission.
