Theater Thursday: Les Miserables


This past Sunday, I saw my favorite musical of all time Les Miserables. Many people ask why this is my favorite given the subject matter, but the story of Jean Valjean’s redemption has meaning. Following Jean Valjean from hardened criminal to an honest man after he made a promise to God when a Bishop saved him from being sent back to the chain gang for stealing a loaf of bread. However, Valjean is pursued recklessly by the legally blinded Javert as he tries to live a normal life raising the daughter of Fantine, a young woman who gave everything for her daughter. In this touching and moving story there are many tears to be shed.
