Because I can’t shut up about this wonderful production. (And because @pilferingapples is a horrible enabler. :P)
I was watching the Dallas Theatre Centre’s 2014 production of Les Mis again today, and as always crying a lot over how brilliantly Liesl Tommy adapted the musical for the modern day.
The thing about Dallas Les Mis that hits home particularly perfectly for me is that every situation feels real. The abuse of the workers, the lovely ladies, the prisoners, the students, the children – it’s all the same stuff we see on the news. And the characters are all people I’ve seen before.
