Les Miserables focuses on a Jean Valjean, a parole escapee who was serving time for stealing a loaf of bread for a child. Valjean, a peasant, looks for a restart to his life but faces being shunned by society and policeman Javert's constant pursuit.
Meanwhile, revolution begins to form in France, and Valjean, along with many others Valjean will get to know, get caught up in the spirit and violence of the times.
John Leffert directed the production, which features Jeremy Moon as Valjean and Josh Gilliam as Javert.
