Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil's Les Misérables, adapted from the classic novel by French author Victor Hugo, opened at the Broadway Theatre in 1987 (it later transferred to the Imperial). By then, it had been running in London since 1985. Soon enough, it would blanket the globe, eventually being produced in 42 countries and translated into 21 languages.
A film adaptation was released in 2012, directed by Tom Hooper and starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, and Eddie Redmayne. The latest Broadway production of the show closed September 4, 2016, after playing the Imperial, the same theatre as the original production.
