'Les Miserables' soon to debut at Beef & Boards

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents the nine-time Tony Award-winning musical “Les Misérables” for the first time ever in a dramatic conclusion to its 40th anniversary season.

The epic production will be presented Oct. 4 through Nov. 24 at Beef & Boards, 9301 N. Michigan Road.

Set in France and based on the novel by Victor Hugo, the story centers on Jean Valjean, who is released from the harsh 19-year prison sentence he received for stealing a loaf of bread. Although freed, he remains an outcast until he breaks his parole and assumes a different identity.

Embarking on a new life, Valjean becomes a respectable citizen and is even elected mayor before he agrees to raise the child of a dying woman who had worked in his factory. Javert, an officer obsessed with justice who has pursued Valjean since he broke parole, discovers the truth about his changed identity and attempts to capture the former convict. Valjean flees with young Cosette and becomes a father to her, but even he can’t protect her heart from being stolen by a young and passionate revolutionary as the French civil unrest builds.

Making his debut on the Beef & Boards stage in the iconic role of Jean Valjean is Gregg Goodbrod. Also making their Beef & Boards debuts are Joe Tokarz in the role of the relentless Inspector Javert, Whitney Meyer as Cosette, and Stephanie Torns as Eponine. Returning to the Beef & Boards stage are Sarah Hund as Fantine, Dominic Sheahan-Stahl as Marius Pontmercy, Annie Edgerton as Madame Thénardier, and Douglas E. Stark as Thénardier.

There are 59 performances of “Les Misérables” scheduled at Beef & Boards. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, fruit and salad bar, and select beverages. Discounts are available for children and groups of 20 or more. Parking is free.

For reservations call the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre box office at 872-9664. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays.
