I Dreamed a Dream

Les Misérables has a special place in my heart because it is considered as my favorite all-time musical. The story means a lot to become the characters fight for their freedom and do not stop until they get what they. My favorite character is Cosette because I am a sucker for romance. She ends up marrying the man of her dreams and living happily ever after with him.

Do You Hear the People Sing?

Les Misérables was originally a novel written by Victor Hugo but was adapted by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil for a Broadway musical. The production is known for its being sung-through and becoming one of the longest theatre productions to run since it debuted in 1980.
