Matt Joslyn directs an extensive local cast in the much-loved musical Les Misérables. The epic story captures the plight of Parisian Jean Valjean and his niece Cosette in a quest for redemption that eventually leads to the June Rebellion in 1832. The original theatrical production of Victor Hugo’s famous novel spent 16 years on Broadway, won several Tony awards and has been reproduced around the globe. 

Through 1/10. $20-25, times vary. Live Arts, 123 E. Water St. 977-4177.
