Les Misérables is based on the Victor Hugo novel about an ex-con and others struggling to find redemption in the midst of turmoil in early 19th century Paris. I saw the touring production in Raleigh several years ago for the first time, and really enjoyed the show. I left my seat singing, "Master of the House." I have yet to see the Les Misérables movie though.
This N.C. stage version will include some local celebrities who are certainly Raleigh favorites. Les Misérables will star Raleigh's own Lauren Kennedy as Fantine in a reprisal of the role she played on Broadway, alongside her real-life daughter Riley Campbell, who makes her NC Theatre debut as Young Cosette. Also starring in the production are Broadway veterans Craig Schulman as Jean Valjean and Chuck Wagner as Javert. If you love “Les Mis,” then you don't want to miss this all-star production!

Lauren Kennedy is a bona fide Broadway star whose credits include starring as the Lady of the Lake in Monty Python's Spamalot, in Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close, in Side Show as Daisy Hilton, and in Cinderella at New York City Opera. Her daughter Riley, making her stage debut, is poised to follow in her mother’s footsteps.
