Performing Arts

Classic Theatre

Interested in history, musicals, or cheap opportunities for students? You are in luck! Les Misérables , the world-renowned  musical based on a classic novel by Victor Hugo, is coming to the Boston Opera House. From this Tuesday, March 13th–April 1st, a story of love, war, and independence will be gracing the stage and you won’t want to miss it! Taking place during the French revolution with a plotline that will make you laugh, cry, and fight many other emotions throughout, this performance is something every theatre-goer should experience (and drag all your friends to).
