On Valentine’s Day, Broadway Series South and the North Carolina Theatre brought “Les Misérables” back to Raleigh Memorial Auditorium, this time without its trademark turntable set but with brooding sets inspired by Hugo’s original artwork. A packed house turned out on Tuesday to greet Cameron McIntosh’s new 25th anniversary production of “Les Misérables.”
Stop! Whatever plans you may have made for this weekend, cancel them. There is something better to do. Cameron Macintosh’s 25th Anniversary Tour of “Les Misérables” is in town at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium and will be leaving after its 7:30 p.m. Sunday performance.
Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, “Les Misérables” is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. The musical’s magnificent score includes the classic songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” “Bring Him Home,” “Do You Hear the People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” “Master of the House,” and many more.
