Based on Victor Hugo's novel of the same name, Les Miserables is a musical drama composed by Claude-Michel Schönberg with lyrics by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel. Set against a backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Miserables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a thief who has just been released after serving 19 years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread. Once he is free, he changes his identity and interacts with several other characters in a complex plot that explores themes of war, love and sacrifice. With no spoken dialogue outside of the musical numbers, the show has achieved immense popularity in the US as well as Europe with songs like "I Dreamed a Dream" and "On My Own," and has won several awards including a Tony for Best Musical.
Pablo Picasso took his passionate viewpoints about love, death, war and beauty and translated them to the canvas, making him an artistic legend and cultural fireball. In "A Weekend With Pablo Picasso", an explosive one-man play from actor/writer Herbert Siguenza, you'll experience Picasso's energy and creativity through Siguenza as the actor dances, sculpts, clowns, chats, and even creates real art in real time during each performance as the legendary maestro. Travel through time to 1957 and spend three days with a modern genius inside his private studio in this stirring work.
