As January transitioned into February, “Les Miserables” came to WMU’s Miller Auditorium.
A musical based on the novel by Victor Hugo, it follows the story of a troubled man who ends up taking in a child and raising her on his own during the French Revolution. The production was very well received by the Western community.
It was a great opportunity for students, and alumni alike to see a famous play come alive at Miller Auditorium’s stage with both WMU theater students and original cast. The students and cast both performed each musical number with such emotion they had the audience hooked from the moment it started to when the curtain closed.
After the curtain came down many conversations between viewers were overheard on their way out the doors raving about how good the play was.
An anonymous viewer exclaimed, “It was better than when I saw it on Broadway.”
“Les Miserables” was a fantastic play and many who saw it over the weekend were ecstatic, whether seeing it for the first time or second, they were ready for many more to come.
