Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Broadway's Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict who breaks parole and is then hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. Spanning years of Valjean’s life, the story goes from the streets of Paris, across the bridges of the Seine, and straight into the heart of a revolution. Featuring the songs “I Dreamed A Dream,” “Bring Him Home,”One Day More,” and “On My Own,” Les Misérables is a timeless tale of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–an enduring testament to the survival of the human spirit.
