Les Miserables, the musical, is based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo. He weaves the story of one man’s survival and persecution in 19th century Paris. Contrary to popular opinion, the musical is not about the French Revolution of 1789. The story begins in 1815, and follows the next two decades, culminating in the Paris Uprising of 1832.
