The Utah Shakespeare Festival has announced that Les Miserables, one of the most popular Broadway shows, will be added to the 2012 Season. It will be replacing the previously announced shows The Drowsy Chaperone in the summer and Scapin in the fall. Scapin will be part of the summer selections.
“I am thrilled we are finally able to produce Les Miserables on the Randall L. Jones stage,” said R. Scott Phillips, Festival Executive Director. “It is one show that our guests have requested over and over for many years, and for the past ten years we have been unable to secure the rights, due to its 25th anniversary national tour and our scheduling, until now. I am confident this show will sell out, so get your tickets now.”
The musical included some of theatre’s most memorable songs such as ”I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “On My Own,” and “Do You Hear the People Sing?”
