Les Miserables

Book by Alan Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg
Music and Lyrics by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Herbert Kretzmer

This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.

Doubt, A Parable

By John Patrick Shanley

All the elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in this provocative play. It’s a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty.

The four characters are fully evoked in dramatic shorthand. No one is totally right — even Father Flynn won’t reveal certain things — keeping us, too, in a state of doubt that author John Patrick Shanley says “can be a passionate exercise.”

Blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, the play is set in 1964 but could not be more timely.

Book by James Goldman
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created.

The time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann (famous for his garish Weissmann Follies of yesteryear) hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant ’20s, ’30s and ’40s pastiche numbers that have become every bit as famous as their models: “Losing My Mind”, “I’m Still Here” and “Broadway Baby” to name a few. Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present and come face to face with the future.
