LES MISÉRABLES at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre
February 28 – March 30, 2014
Book by Alan Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, Music By Claude-Michel Schönberg and Lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer
This multiple Tony Award winning musical phenomenon follows the story of former prisoner Jean Val Jean, who is on the run from police officer Javert, rescues Fantine’s daughter, Cosette, and sets out to begin a new life. Set post-French revolution, Les Misérables, is the story of love, loss, and the hope of a better tomorrow.
Show Description: After 19 years on the chain gang, Jean Valjean finds that the ticket-of-leave he must display condemns him to be an outcast. Only the Bishop of Digne treats him kindly and Valjean, embittered by years of hardship, repays him by stealing some silver. Valjean is caught and brought back by the police and is astonished when the Bishop lies to the police to save him. Valjean decides to start his life anew.
