Les Misérables is coming to the DECC this Wednesday through Saturday, July 16 - 19 at 7:30 p.m. The Duluth Playhouse is celebrating its 100th season, and has been hard at work making this production one to remember.
We had lead actors Adam Sippola and Ali Littrell Finstrom on the show to tell us more about the production. Sippola plays Jean Valjean, and Finstrom plays the role of Fantine.
For the first time ever, The Playhouse, The Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and the Minnesota Ballet share the stage for Duluth's largest arts collaboration, featuring New York guest director Dorothy Danner.
Local professionals and regional actors have been cast, along with two native Duluth actors currently living in New York City, Shad Olsen and Sarah Killough.
The Playhouse has hired Dirk Meyer along with members of the DSSO for the orchestra.
MN Ballet's executive director, Robert Gardener, will choreograph and technical direct. Ken Pogin is the lighting designer.
