Going to See Les Miserables
Tickets to Les Misérables are something that the music lovers in your family will cherish this year for the holidays. The current running of the show started in 2013 and runs through most of 2016. As of right now, there are no plans for the show to cease. It’s one of the most loved musicals of all time, and will be an experience that you will never forget.
The play is based upon the book of the same title by Victor Hugo. First published in 1862, it’s considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. It details rebellion and uprising in France in the early 1800s, and the story has since been retold many times, both on the stage and as a Hollywood movie. It’s a great story, and the English translation of the book remains one of the most read pieces of historical fiction of all time.
One of the reasons why Les Mis has been such a lasting and powerful story is because of the themes that the story, and thus the play, explores. It’s a look at justice, morals and philosophy, religion, and social constructs. The story is based in France almost two hundred years ago, but because these themes remain important in our lives today, tickets to Les Misérables are still one of the hottest items on Broadway. In a town where only the biggest and best survive, this is one musical that has stood the test of time and keeps getting better with age.
Currently playing on West 45th Street in New York City at the Imperial Theatre, this musical promises to be one of the best shows of 2016. It’s located right outside of Times Square, in the heart of the busiest part of the city. There are dozens of restaurants located nearby, as well as all of the allure that NYC has to offer. If you’ve never been to a Broadway show before, this is a wonderful one to go see. And if you’ve already seen it, the current cast is one of the best that have ever performed it. Some critics argue that it rivals the rendition from 1987 that won the Tony Award for Best Musical.
