Celebrate Independence Day by remembering the failed Parisian rebellion of 1832 (no gloating). The Steel Yard will be the Providence host venue for the touring production of Less Miserable (Victor Hugo’s classic tale told through song).
For the entire month of June, over seventy underground artists from around the country have converged in the woods of northern Vermont to mount a monumentally ambitious and unabashedly DIY adaptation Victor Hugo’s epic novel about post-Napoleonic France. This operatic take on Hugo’s sweeping narrative comes complete with badass musical arrangements, a 20-foot diameter revolving stage, and a cast, crew, and set requiring three veggie-oil school buses for transportation.
The show begins promptly at 8pm and runs approximately 3 hours including one intermission. During intermission, audience members can peruse an extensive bazaar of art, music, and crafts made by the artists involved.
8pm, Monday, July 2, the Steel Yard, 27 Sims Avenue, 273.7101
