Les Miserables: National Tour

Cameron Mackintosh presents the new production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, "Les Misérables," direct from an acclaimed two-and-a-half-year return to Broadway. This beloved musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg is based on Hugo's famous novel of 19th-century France. The action begins in 1815 as Jean Valjean is condemned to 19 years of hard labor for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his family. When he is released on parole, he finds only hatred and suspicion. Meeting one man who believes in him, Valjean breaks his parole to begin a new life. The story truly begins as Jean Valjean crosses the landscape of France, always pursued by the righteous police inspector Javert. From Valjean's adoption and love of the orphan Cosette, to the darkly funny plots of the thieving Thenardiers, from the soaring revolutionary fire set by student rebels fighting in the streets of Paris to the final confrontation between Jean Valjean and Javert, this story is one of love, courage and redemption. As the now-famous lyric from the show says, "To love another person is to see the face of God."

Disturbed

Chicago's Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Long-time friends Dan Donegan Mike Wengren and Fuzz played together for some time before hooking up with singer David Draiman around 1997. Together, the group's thrashing sound built up a following on Chicago's South Side, leading to a record deal and the release of their debut album, 'The Sickness,' in 2000. The band gained more exposure playing at the 2001 Ozzfest, and it snowballed from there. In 2016, the band made a mainstream splash with their brooding, intense cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic, "The Sound of Silence."
