It will be one day more one more time when the 25th anniversary production of Les Miserables returns to the Centennial Concert Hall July 23-28.
The all new production of the Alain Boublil/Claude-Michel Schönberg musical is marking its silver anniversary with new staging and reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, the French novelist who wrote the novel Les Misérables in 1862.
Tickets, which start at $35, go on sale 10 a.m. April 20 at all Ticketmaster outlets. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. and a Sunday evening show at 7:30 p.m. The western Canadian tour of Les Misérables begins in Vancouver June 11 and ends in Winnipeg.
Les Misérables is set in 19th-century France where the fugitive Jean Valjean is pitted against the cruel and self-righteous police Inspector Javert in a lifelong struggle to evade capture. The Broadway production, which features such classic songs as I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own and One Day More, remains the third longest-running Broadway production ever.
