Les Misérables Comes to Boston Opera House


Les Misérables is returning to the Boston Opera House stage after a successful second revival on Broadway. The Tony nominated production will come to Boston as part of a national tour following the show’s closing on Broadway in 2016.

The revival drew huge acclaim for its stripped down storytelling, told through atmospheric video projections that lend the show a cinematic backdrop never before utilized in a production of the musical. The original Broadway production ran for 6,680 performances, making it the fifth longest running show in Broadway history.

Les Misérables transports audiences to 1830’s France at the start of the revolution with Jean Valjean, an escaped convict who has to raise his adopted daughter Cosette while escaping police inspector Javert. Among them are a group of young idealists attempting to overthrow the government, poor peasants struggling on the street, and a larger than life barricade.

The upcoming Boston engagement will run from April 16 to 28, with all dates nearly sold out. The production is recommended by Playbill for ages ten and up and is approximately three hours and ten minutes in duration. Les Misérables is one of the most successful and loved musicals of all time so don’t wait “One Day More” to experience this musical masterpiece.
