The Nutmeg Summer Series will kick off with Les Misérables, the classic story of broken dreams and passions set in 19th century France, directed by Mann. He will also reprise the role of Javert, which he originated on Broadway and for which he received a Tony nomination. The cast will also feature fellow Tony nominee Liz Larsen (Beautiful) and Ariana DeBose (Hamilton).
The summer series will conclude with Xanadu, adapted from the cult movie-musical starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly. The roller-skating comedy will star Luke Hamilton and Amandina Altomare.
Tickets will be available late April. For more information visit crt.uconn.edu or call (860) 486-2113.
