Cottage Theatre presents
A new production of
Boublil and Schönberg’s
Les Misérables

Directed by Alan Beck
Music Direction by Larry Kenton

Les Misérables is licensed by Music Theatre International (MTI), www.mtishows.com, by arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh Ltd.

Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is a monumental story about the survival of the human spirit. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Epic, grand, and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled people all over the world.

Winner of the 1987 Tony Award for Best Musical

Bob Welch Book Signing
at Cottage Theatre
Friday, April 17
Before the show and at intermission
Bob Welch is a speaker, author, award-winning columnist and teacher who has served as an adjunct professor of journalism at the University of Oregon in Eugene. A long-time columnist for the Eugene Register-Guard, Welch has twice won the National Society of Newspaper Columnists’s highest award for writing. He has written more than 15 books, the latest of which is titled 52 Little Lessons from Les Misérables.
From the book jacket:
" . . . Welch walks readers through Victor Hugo's masterpiece, extracting dozens of uniquely spiritual reflections from this enduring portrait of poverty, social injustice, mercy, and redemption. Welch reminds us that Jean Valjean's life provides the truest example of why real love is found in the grittiest places, and that hearts are made whole beneath the crush of mercy."
Bob Welch will be joining us at Cottage Theatre for the Friday, April 17 performance of Les Misérables and will be autographing copies of his book before the show and during intermission.
Copies of his book will be available for sale (or you can bring an already-purchased copy for an autograph). If your show tickets are for another performance, you are welcome to just stop by for the book signing that night.
