Les Misérables, is the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his relentless pursuit by "law and order" police inspector Javert. Filled with fascinating vignettes of 19th-century France, the play boasts a brilliant cast of characters who weave an exciting tapestry of humankind at its best and worst. Visually exciting, emotionally powerful, this is imaginative theatre with a capital "T."
