Flat Rock Playhouse presents its biggest musical of the season, "Les Miserables," from July 10 through Aug. 18 at the Flat Rock Playhouse Mainstage. The production stars Rob Evan from "Les Miserables" on Broadway.
Evan is returning to Flat Rock Playhouse after starring in the second ever Music on the Rock, "A Tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber," which was adapted into the Playhouse Mainstage hit "Music of the Night."
During the span of his diverse career, Evan has performed in seven leading roles on the New York stage including the original Broadway cast of "Jekyll & Hyde," playing the title roles for three years and more than 1,000 performances worldwide.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, "Les Misérables" tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
