A WORLD RENOWNED MUSICAL
A fugitive on the run, a promise made to a dying mother and, above all, the hope that despite our circumstances, we still have the power to change the course of our destiny.
Les Miserables is one of the few musicals that has rightfully survived the test of not only time but also with more than 20 translations and 42 countries around the world, and still maintained its timeless message of the redeeming nature of love and the strength of the human spirit. This thrilling new Broadway revival has been nominated for three 2014 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and a Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical nomination for none other than Ramin Karimloo!
Set against the dramatic backdrop of the 19th century France and the June Rebellion, Les Miserables follows the escaped convict Jean Valjean (Ramin Karimloo) as he tries to build a new life for himself and his adopted daughter, Cosette (played by Samantha Hill). However, he is hunted for almost two decades by the unrelenting police inspector, Javert (Will Swenson) whose only dream is to see Valjean behind bars once again.
Ramin Karimloo has performed previously as Jean Valjean both in the recent Toronto production of Les Miserables and in the long-running London West End production.
