While the film version competes for a Best Picture Academy Award, a touring production of the musical "Les Miserables" returns to PlayhouseSquare for a week-long run.
More than 42,000 people attended the 25th anniversary production of the Claude-Michel Schonberg / Herbert Kretzmer / Alain Boublil musical when it played Cleveland in 2011.
This production features a new staging and reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, who wrote the novel on which it is based.
The score includes "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" and "Master Of The House."
"Les Miserables" will be staged Tuesday through Feb. 10 at the Palace Theatre, PlayhouseSquare, 1519 Euclid Ave., Cleveland. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Feb. 8, 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9 and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Feb. 10.
