In April 2011, more than 42,000 people experienced a brand new 25th anniversary production of Boublil & Schnberg's legendary musical, "Les Misrables." Now, due to overwhelming demand, "Les Misrables" returns to Cleveland Feb. 5 through 10 as a part of the U.S. Bank Star Performance Series at Playhouse Square.
Cameron Mackintosh presents "Les Misrables," with new staging and reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo. This new production has been acclaimed by critics, fans and new audiences and is breaking box office records wherever it goes. The Plain Dealer declared, "'Les Miz' is worth cheering for all over again."

"I'm delighted that 25 years after 'Les Miz' originally opened in London the audience for this marvelous show is bigger and younger than ever before," said Mackintosh. "Over the years I have seen many successful but visually different productions, so it has been exciting to draw inspiration from the brilliant drawings and paintings of Victor Hugo himself, integrated with spectacular projections. The new 'Les Miz' is a mix of images and epic staging, driving one of the greatest musical stories ever told."
Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel, "Les Misrables" is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. The score includes the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Stars," "Bring Him Home," "Do You Hear the People Sing?," "One Day More," "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables," "Master Of The House" and more.
