Now officially the longest-running musical in the world, Les Misérables celebrates its 25th anniversary with an exciting, all-new production from famed producer Cameron Mackintosh. Based on the novel by Victor Hugo, this updated spectacular boasts new staging and scenery inspired by Hugo's own paintings, as it tells the epic tale of ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption in 19th-century France. Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical in its original Broadway run, the lush Boublil and Schönberg score features the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "One Day More" and many others. The long-awaited film adaptation is also on track for a December 2012 release, starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, so now's the perfect chance to see the thrilling Les Mis live on stage.
