The epic musical that's captured the hearts of millions is back on Broadway!

LES MISERABLES has returned to Broadway's Imperial Theatre in an acclaimed new production that has audiences leaping to their feet. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, LES MIZ is an unforgettable story of heartbreak, passion, and the resilience of the human spirit, that has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history.

Featuring the timeless score and beloved songs "I Dreamed A Dream", "Bring Him Home", "One Day More", and "On My Own", this breathtaking new Broadway production has left the critics awestruck, hailing it "A LES MIZ FOR THE 21ST CENTURY!" (The Huffington Post)

I had already saw the movie and did not like it that much, still this play was amazing! All the actors were very good, with excellent voices and acting skills. Besides it all, the organization at the theatre was really good. Really nice experience.

Another classic... Les Miz is a fantastic show that worth every dollar. Tickets are really easy to get and is one of the top shows in Broadway... The ambience and the music at the Majestic Theatre is really perfect. Will go again next time in town!. Tip: if you have time and want to save some dollars, go to TKTs... More

Fabulous music and acting. This is one of, if not the, longest running plays on Broadway. Everyone should see it. You can't go wrong with this choice. Sometimes you can get half price tickets at the half price booth in Times Square.

I've seen Les Miz here and traveling show in Tallahassee, much better here in NY for the bigger stage and grand theater. Fantastic vocals, beautiful costumes and settings. You'll recognize every song throughout the performance. Make reservations in advance for the grand Broadway experience. I brought my father from France and he lives the tale of Jean Valjean.

I saw the movie but it can't compare to seeing it on the theater! Just the passion the voices and seeing the whole play come together it's inspiring. If you visit NYC it's a great play to see

Les Miserables is a historical musical, that everyone will enjoy. An incredible story of the French Revolution, Les Miz will leave you in awe, and live on forever. From the moment you enter the theatre to moment the curtain closes, it feels like you are in revolution era France. From the scenery to the costumes everything is periodically correct. There...

Saw in 1990's in winter when shows went on sale in conjunction with each other and you could get $50 orchestra seats, lol. A great show to see on Broadway when in town

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
