Les Miserables, Hugo's novel that changed how novels were written, has become a classic of the underdog, the laborer, the rebel, the orphan, the misunderstood, and the underloved. The story of rebellion in France from cruel tyranny of leadership, of laws that made no sense, of a cause taken up by college students, Les Miserables is the theme of the long-running Broadway play. Jean Val Jean, Lucy, Cosette, all came from here. And here the misery, the victory, and the story are all brought to life by one of Britain's most distinguished actors, Christopher Cazenove. His depth and range make the story become real.
