One of the world’s best-loved musicals!

A timeless story of revolution and love, Les Misérables has touched lives around the world with the powerful story of Jean Valjean and his life-long struggle for redemption. From the prisons and taverns of 19th Century France to the streets of Paris during the French revolution, this deeply moving musical brings to life Victor Hugo’s eternal message of compassion and hope. Set to a soaring and uplifting score, this emotionally-charged Tony® Award-winning blockbuster’s score will leave you breathless, featuring pop-opera classics such as “One Day More,” “Master of the House” and “Bring Him Home.”

Robert Cuccioli takes the stage as Javert in Les Misérables. He made his Broadway debut as Javert in Les Misérables and earned a Tony® nomination for his role in Jekyll and Hyde. His previous Pittsburgh CLO credits include The Sound of Music, Funny Girl, Guys and Dolls, Bells are Ringing and The Pajama Game.  He also directed Jekyll and Hyde for Pittsburgh CLO.
