Long running musical adaptation of Victor Hugo's great humanitarian novel of one man's determined survival in the face of another's vengeful persecution. The dramatic score includes numbers such as "On My Own", "One More Day", and "Do You Hear the People Sing". Directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, produced by Cameron Mackintosh.
The relentless policeman Javert pursues escaped convict Jean Valjean over decades through the tumult of revolutionary France. Valjean becomes a mayor, agrees to raise the daughter of dying prostitute and joins the fight for freedom. None of this impresses the single-minded Javert, until the day Valjean saves his life. Based on Victor Hugo's epic novel.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
