Les Misérables

Saw Les Mis last night at the Boston Opera House. This is the fourth time I've seen the production, and each time, I'm struck by how the musical evokes compassion for thieves and prostitutes ... and even for Javert, the so-called "bad guy." I'm taking the novel with me on vacation to reflect on how Victor Hugo created such nuanced, memorable characters. I'll be back on the fire escape on Tuesday, February 28th.
