Ole Miserables 

After 17 years of nonstop coast-to-coast performances, the U.S. national touring production of Les Misérables is packing up the barricades and calling it quits. That's right, the heartwrenching musical that made us all believe that a fanatical police inspector could chase a man through the sewers of Paris only to let him go and commit suicide on the banks of the Seine is playing The Orpheum for the last time.

Based on Victor Hugo's epic novel and set against the background of the French Revolution, Les Misérables' rabble-rousing score set the theater world ablaze when Trevor Nunn's thundering, technically stunning production opened at the Barbican in London in 1985. It has since been seen by 53 million people and translated into 21 languages.

By our calculations, however, there are still one or two people in the world who haven't seen it yet, and if you're one of them, now would be the time to go. As they say, tickets are limited.

Les Misérables at The Orpheum through July 9th, $25-$75
