The 25th anniversary production of one of Broadway's biggest hits makes its way to OKC.
Few contemporary musicals have the longevity of Les Misérables, the 1985 Claude-Michel Schönberg-Alain Boublil musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel of the same name set at the brink of the French Revolution. You could mention several Andrew Lloyd Weber titles or The Fantasticks, yet Les Misérables stands out for its epic storytelling in both dialogue and song. A special 25th anniversary production of the Broadway and West End hit travels to the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall. The scene design, staging and orchestration have been reimagined for this celebratory production, which debuted in 2008 in Cardiff, U.K., but the spirit and songs (such as "On My Own," "I Dreamed a Dream" and "Master of the House") are as faithful to the story and its characters as ever. Celebrity Attractions presents the new incarnation of Les Misérables Oct. 9-14. www.celebrityattractions.com
