Les Misérables: The History of the Worlds Greatest Story DVD
From Victor Hugo's classic French novel of the nineteenth century to Tom Hooper's award winning blockbuster this year, Les Misérables has undergone one of the most successful transitions from book to stage to screen. When Cameron Mackintosh decided to make a musical of a French man's search for redemption against the backdrop of the French Revolution, theatre critics slated its first London performance in 1985. But nearly thirty years later over 60 million people have seen the stage play and many more will watch the movie.
In this new documentary, the scintillating journey of Hugo's universal story is traced from book to stage to screen with contributions from many who have starred in or helped to create this entertainment phenomenon. Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Alfie Boe, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hooper, Frances Ruffelle, Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway recount the amazing story of why Les Misérables has captured a place in everyone's hearts through all it’s mediums. Also included is an intimate interview with a young Cameron Mackintosh in which he describes his passion for the theatre, his abject failures and his eventual triumph over adversity with Les Misérables.
