"Whether you’ve seen the musical, the movie or neither one, you’re going to love the TGAM twist on this Victor Hugo classic. Why sit for three hours when we can pare down this epic show to 80 minutes with way more comedy plus give you a vaudeville revue too! With song parodies and tons of laughs you’re bound to leave the theater with a whole new “take” on this classic story."
Les Miserables, or A Whole Lot Less Miserable, is a musical comedy based loosely on the plot line of the famous book, musical, and movie. Featuring hilarious song parodies, outrageous characters, and references to everything under the sun, this show is a wonderful example of everything that makes The Great American Melodrama a Central Coast treasure. It simultaneously spoofs theatre's traditions and cliches while at the same time celebrating them. Written in collaboration between TGAM and Desert Star Theatre in Utah, the end result is a delight for the whole family, featuring Philip David Black as the dastardly Javert, an alternately French (and somehow German) villain in the classic melodrama tradition.
