For 27 years, Les Miserables has been invoking emotion on stage within its audience members since its first performance on Oct. 8, 1985. The show has been seen by nearly 60 million people worldwide in 42 countries and 21 languages.
The show will return to Oklahoma City for eight performances to open Celebrity Attractions 2012-2013 season with 8 performances Oct.9-14. Tickets have been on sale only since Monday and already five sections of the Civic Center Music Hall have been sold out.
With the 25th anniversary edition of the show being shown in Oklahoma City, "Les Miserables" has been revised and re-imagined since its last tour in town.
"I'm delighted that 25 years after 'Les Miserables' originally opened in London, the audience for this marvelous show is bigger and younger than ever before," Producer Cameron Mackintosh said. "Over the years, I have seen many successful but visual different productions so it has been exciting to draw inspiration from the brilliant drawings and paintings of Victor Hugo himself, integrated with spectacular projections. The new "Les Miz" is a magnificent mix of dazzling images and epic staging, driving one of the greatest musical stories every told."
