Les Miserables Tickets Averaging Nearly $200 Per Seat On Secondary Market This Month
February 11, 2015
The Les Miserables Broadway production initially opened to the public in 1986, enjoying a 17-year long run on Broadway before closing in 2003. The show returned for a revival in 2006, and once again in 2014, opening in March at the Imperial Theatre. The Broadway show received three Tony Award nominations, but lost out at all three. The show is set in 19th century France and tells the story of Jean Valjean, who is a French peasant looking for redemption after serving 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread for his family to eat.
