The Broadway epic finally comes to the HCTO stage! Spanning several years of his lifetime, Les Mierables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a runaway convict seeking redemption after serving 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. His journey to freedom collides and converges with the lives of the worst and the best of humanity. Based on Victor Hugo's epic 19th century novel.
The plot focuses on wisecracking cynic Mary and infuriatingly sensible Bob, only recently divorced and who haven't seen each other in nine months, who meet at his apartment in the hope they can avert an audit by the IRS. A snowstorm forces Mary to spend the night, and the following morning mutual friend and lawyer Oscar, Hollywood heartthrob and neighbor Dirk Winston, and Bob's considerably younger fiancee Tiffany arrice on the scene. The comedy's humor is derived from discussions about income taxes, marriage, alimony, divorce, remarriage, extra-marital affairs, weight-loss programs, exercise, and sex. Ages 12 and up allowed with a ticket. Please no babies or babes in arms. All sales are final. No refunds. Late seating is not allowed into this theatre. Please be in your seats no later than 7:20 PM. Thank you for your consideration of others.
