As far as buffoonery, broad humor, simple characterization and ludicrously improbable situations go, audiences cannot go wrong with this ridiculously funny play, which has been earning belly laughs worldwide for the past 25 years. The plot revolves around the Cleveland Opera Company. A famous Italian tenor is making his American debut in the company's production of Otello. The financial and critical success of the company depends on his performance—and nobody is more aware of this than the short-tempered general manager, who will stop at nothing to make sure the show goes on!
How it rates: This is not a musical comedy, but a madcap, screwball farce. It's full of backstage shenanigans, mistaken identities and some inevitable adult entanglements that may be appreciated by a more mature audience.

Set in 19th century France, this international smash-hit tells the life story of convict Jean Valjean and his life-long struggle for redemption. Relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, Valjean makes his way through France and eventually to the Paris student uprising of 1832. Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The score overflows with melodies that are already standards, but its powerful affirmation of the human spirit is what has made Les Misérables a popular masterpiece.
How it rates:
Known lovingly as "Les Mis", this is a big, gritty story with a luscious score and many well-known songs. It needs time to be told, but is worth every minute. The themes and intensity of this show are not suitable for younger children.
