- Minneapolis Star Tribune
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Les Misérables, this is the authorized companion book to the world's best-loved musical. Containing more than 100 color and black-and-white photographs, Les Misérables: History in the Making chronicles the show from its source in Victor Hugo's epic novel to the original Paris production and the making of an international hit. Edward Behr draws on firsthand interviews with the authors and producer, as well as cast members, directors, and designers from around the world to convey all the excitement and trials in staging Les Miz. Also included are lists of opening nights, awards, and recordings, and - most important - the complete libretto.
