VINTAGE PLAYBILL: Les Misérables Opening Night, 1987
12 Mar 2013
On this date 26 years ago, Les Misérables began its historic Broadway run.
Following a blockbuster premiere in London's West End, the musical opened at the Broadway Theatre on March 12, 1987.
New York Times reviewer Frank Rich praised the production's "electrifying showmanship," also writing, "If anyone doubts that the contemporary musical theater can flex its atrophied muscles and yank an audience right out of its seats, he need look no further than the Act I finale of Les Misérables."
Tail! Spin! is the hysterical new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony Weiner, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig and Mark Foley. With SNL Alum Rachel Dratch! Only $55!
