Submitted by Kiki Turner on Wed, 03/06/2013 - 4:22pm

At a time when the punishment for stealing a loaf of bread was a 19-year prison sentence, this musical (set in early 19th century France) puts a humbling perspective on words like “hardship.” Known for hauntingly beautiful songs such as “I Dreamed a Dream,” Les Misérables follows characters Jean Valijean, Cosette, Fantine, and others as they are swept into the tumultuous times brought on by the French Revolution. Wed-Fri 7:30 p.m.; Sat-Sun 2 p.m., 7:30 p.m.
