Les Miserables

Last night, Leanne and I celebrated our 12th anniversary by seeing Les Miserables at the Walnut Street Theater. We were not disappointed. The WST put on an unbelievable production of the musical which is based on the novel by Victor Hugo.

I was reminded again of the mercy and grace that is there for us. For those of you who aren’t familiar, the story is about a thief, Jean Valjean, who is granted mercy by a bishop. The rest of his life is spent trying to repay his debt of mercy to those around him while at the same time running from Javert, the police inspector. In the end, Jean Valjean is able to grant mercy to Javert. It really is a remarkable story and an incredible musical. (It’s in Philly until August 3rd – if you’re interested.)

Here’s a small glimpse of the funny side that happens in the middle of this wonderful story:
