Top Theatre Pick: Les MisérablesLes-Mis

Possibly the most popular musical of all time, Les Misérables depicts 19th century France in the throes of civil unrest. After 19 years of unjust imprisonment, Jean Valjean is released to find that there is no work for an ex-con. He breaks parole to have a fresh start and begins a lifelong quest for redemption. Police inspector Javert pursues Valjean relentlessly, staunchly refusing forgiveness and mercy, even for a changed man. Please note that due to production demands, the performance will be held at SECCA, rather than the Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance theatre.
