When his family is in crisis, Jean Valjean makes a choice—he breaks a window to steal a loaf of bread. The act earns him a 5-year prison sentence, which grows to 19 years due to his repeated escape attempts. When his freedom finally does arrive, he makes another fateful decision. Shedding the identity and playground taunts that come with the name Jean Valjean, he takes a new name and starts a new life as Monsieur Madeleine, a wealthy factory owner and mayor. But the past doesn’t loosen its grip so easily. Pursued relentlessly by Inspector Javert, Valjean journeys through 19th-century France, a country on the cusp of revolution, determined to keep his promise to raise a young orphan, find redemption, and protect those he loves.
No Les Mis is complete without a great Valjean, and to close out the latest Broadway run, the producers bring out the big guns. Welsh actor John Owen-Jones will sing “Bring Him Home” a few more times, including on that big closing night—fitting, as he was a part of the closing cast of the last Les Mis revival as well. Owen-Jones has spent a lot of time in fictional France, and not just in this show: Owen-Jones is the longest-running Phantom of the Opera of London’s West End, with more than 2,000 performances under his belt.
